The Hazards of Clogged Gutters

The Hazards of Clogged Gutters

While your home’s gutter system might seem like a minor and forgettable part of the overall structure, it actually plays a vital role in safeguarding your home’s structural integrity. Sadly, most owners do not think much about calling for a gutter cleaning service until they are experiencing problems.

The Hazards of Clogged Gutters

Your gutters getting clogged with leaves, branches or other debris may seem like a minor issue. But the truth is, the longer you leave your gutters clogged and not functioning, the more you are putting your entire property at risk.

Here some of the most common hazards of clogged gutters.

Mold Growth

Mold is not only unpleasant to look at, but it can also pose risks to your family’s well-being. As water falls off the roof because of clogged gutters, your attic, siding and basement walls can become damp, which may result in mold growth. This may lead to respiratory problems.

Basement Damage
As water overflows from your clogged gutters, water will flow down the sides of your home, and can seep through to your basement and cause water damage. Basement repair can leave you spending thousands of dollars, much more than the cost of simply having your seamless gutters cleaned on a regular basis.

Structural Damage

Do not let something as simple as gutter maintenance turn a leak into serious structural damage.  Over time, what might seem a minor gutter issue could be penetrating deeply into your home’s foundation, walls, exterior, etc.  So a little maintenance can result in a big savings by avoiding fixing structural issues that develop over time due to faulty gutters.  By working with Advantage Seamless Gutters, you are sure to have clean gutters that protect your home from water damage.
