Gutter Cleaning In the Winter

Cleaning your gutters is very important and selecting the right professional to go up on top of your roof to clean and clear that unwanted debris out of your gutters. Your gutters should be cleaned at least once a year and the best time is around winter time, no later than the first months of the year. This way you are getting the most time between services for the gutters to repopulate with leaves, straw and run-off dirt. But waiting for the winter time comes with a few drawbacks.

Sometimes the weather will prevent you or any professional from cleaning your gutters, due to the freezing rain, which makes a sheet of ice in the bottom of the gutter. Also the roof may have ice on the shingles, causing a serious safety hazard! Your gutters need to get servcied before the ice, rain and snow season- this will prevent a lot of damage and hazards for your roof and gutter cleaning. Another condition that can occur are ‘ice dams’. These basically happen on the roof and or in the gutter as a blockage builds a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof that prevents melting snow or water from draining off your roof. The water backs up and can leak into your home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, your roof and gutters.

So it is important not to wait for it to be too late to maintain your gutters and roof before a bad winter storm or freezing weather. Waiting for damage to form and cause more rot and rust to your gutters, making them brittle and ineffective to protecting your home.
