Are “April showers” wreaking havoc on your gutters? Heavy rainfall is a common occurrence during this time of year, which is why it is essential that your gutter system is clean and clear of debris. If your gutters are clogged, they are not able to effectively protect your home from water damage by draining water from your roof and directing it away from the foundation of your home. Let us enlighten you on the dangers of neglecting to clean your gutters and downspouts.

What Causes Clogged Gutters?

Clogged gutters are usually a result of an accumulation of leaves, twigs, shingle grit, and other outdoor debris. If your gutters are not sufficiently angled towards your downspouts, they are going to be more susceptible to clogging and damage. If you live in a wooded area, you may notice a more severe accumulation of debris.

How Clogged Gutters Can Damage Your Home

Your gutter system was put into place for one purpose – to drain water from your roofing and funnel it safely away from your home. When your gutters and downspouts are clogged, rainwater has no place to go. Water backup can damage your roof, fascia board, soffits, and siding. During a heavy rainfall, this water could overflow and spill onto the foundation around your home without proper drainage. All of this can lead to costly leaks within your home or even a flooded basement.

Standing Water Attracts Pests

The standing water that accumulates as a result of your clogged gutters will attract insects, rodents, and mosquitoes that carry dangerous diseases. These pests can live within your gutters and downspouts and present a health hazard to your family. Additionally, standing water is a haven for bacteria and may incite mold growth that could be costly.
