How Often Do You Need to Clean Your Gutters?

In short, at least twice a year—barring any storms or special weather situations. Your gutters are a very important part of your home. Using the right means that your house’s immediate surroundings aren’t being drowned by rainfall, but their upkeep is even more important than their installation.

When to Clean Them

Clean them twice a year on a maintenance schedule, and you also want to revisit them after weather events. Storms are a common issue for gutters as debris tends to get caught in them. This can lead to a lot of problems like sagging or the cutter overflowing, or in some cases the gutter being so heavy that it rips off. Other times to think about cleaning it in October, as leaves fall and begin to pile up into the gutter track. These can rot and cause molds, or they too can also create clogs and overflows.

Do Not Clean Them Yourself

No one likes to climb up a ladder and work with their hands up there. Imagine trying to handle a garbage bag and shovel debris into it, balancing at least teen feet in the air.
