Many homeowners don’t pay enough attention to keeping their gutters clean. Investing in deep interior cleanings or landscaping services is a priority for some. Gutter cleaning is often overlooked as a service for your home, even though it has significant benefits in keeping your roofing system clean and efficient. Gutters accumulate leaves and twigs through rainfall and snow. Over time, these materials can attract birds, mice, and other animals to your drain. On top of lowering the efficiency of your gutter system, these nesting areas can draw in pests that carry viruses, posing a potential health threat to your family. In addition, decomposed organic matter left on your gutters can promote the growth of mildew, which is also toxic to your respiratory system and can trigger allergic reactions. Regular gutter cleaning ensures you and your family stay safe from external pollutants in your home.
