The fall and winter seasons are often stressful times for homeowners. That’s because of the maintenance needed to keep their property in good working order. Homeowners should pay special attention to their gutter guards. If the house gutters become clogged, there can be damaging consequences.
3 Hazards Of Clogged Gutter Systems
1. Sagging Gutter Drainage System
When leaves collect in your rain gutters, the weight can cause them to separate from the fascia board. The clogged gutter can then fall off your home.
2. Organic Growth Due To Lack Of Gutter Maintenance
Homeowners that aren’t cleaning their gutters can end up with water in their house. This leads to the growth of mold and mildew. Not only does this damage drywall, but it poses a risk to their family’s health.
3. Cracked Sidewalks & Driveways
Without gutter maintenance, sidewalks and driveways can get too much water on them. Over time, this can cause expensive issues that can cause a home to sell for less than it otherwise would.
