The Problem With Clogged Gutters
Standard gutters on a home are made to capture and safely redirect drained water during rainfall. However, debris like twigs, dirt, and leaves accumulate and can cause blockage.
There are various ways clogged gutters can create bigger problems. The collection of seedlings, twigs, pinecones, and acorns can attract critters looking for food or nesting materials. In most cases, the large buildup of organic debris can result in water spilling over gutters and pooling up along the surface below and around the home. This can result in erosion in the immediate area and damage to the landscape. It can even lead to more serious issues if there’s moisture seeping into the foundations of the home. And when it comes to added moisture, mold and bacteria begin to grow, which can become a very serious hazard.
