Gutters clogged with debris and gunk can’t be ignored. It’s important to keep gutters clean to avoid the basement flooding and moisture damage that often results from clogged, overflowing gutters.
The Importance of Clean Gutters
Keeping your gutters clean and clear is hard, dirty and dangerous work.
If your gutters haven’t been cleaned for a while, there’s most likely quite a variety of junk and gunk has accumulated. This build-up of debris prevents your gutters from doing their job.
If you are tired of dealing with clogged gutters and are looking for a hassle-free solution, you've come to the right place. Bone Dry Roofing specializes in gutter cleaning and installation of gutter protection, including quality, custom gutter guard solutions for every home.
Although it’s necessary to keep your gutters clean, it’s equally important to be aware of the following hazards when cleaning gutters.
What’s in my gutters?
Depending on your home’s surroundings & features, any of the following items might be present in unprotected gutters:
Seeds & sprouts
Mold on rotted organic materials
Grit from roof shingles
Single or flashing nails
Masonry fragments from chimneys
Rodent & bird nests
Gutter cleaning hazards:
Falling off a ladder can lead to serious injury
Possible contact with mold and bacteria that can cause infections and other health problems.
Dented and scraped gutters resulting from contact with tools or ladders.
Exterior siding, garden furniture, and landscaping that is stained or damaged by falling gutter gunk.
When a gutter clogs, bad things happen.
Heavy rain can cause clogged gutters to quickly fill with water and overflow, dumping water next to your foundation and possibly leading to a flooded basement or crawl space.
