Caretaker Services: Why is Now A Good Time for Gutter Cleaning?
All homeowners know that maintenance is essential to protecting your home against a myriad of issues. Your home is usually a huge asset and the lack of proper maintenance will decrease the value of your home. Most people do the basic maintenance and forget about one very important area – the gutters. It is suggested to have the gutters cleaned twice a year in Myrtle Beach – Spring and Fall. If you live in an area with a lot of trees you may want to speak to your specialist at Caretaker Services about the need to clean the gutters more often. So why clean your gutters now? Leaves and twigs can build up inside the gutters and affect the run off. Coming into Myrtle Beach winter, which can bring more rain and possible snow, the gutters should be clear of debris so water has an easy egress. The downside to not cleaning gutters can be expensive and cause damage to your home or roof. The weight of water added to the debris is like a sponge; the weight stresses the gutters and their brackets and can cause them to pull away from the wall. This is costly to repair, not even taking into account the possibility of broken windows or lights damaged when the gutters fall. Overflowing gutters can cause damage to your paint or siding. Often cracking foundations are traced back to overflowing gutters. Creating a service plan with Caretaker Services will take the worry and possibility of damage away. Some of the benefits of regular gutter cleaning include avoiding nesting areas for termites, birds and other insects, destruction of landscaping, and preventing water damage to your home. If gutters aren’t clear of debris, then they can’t do their job! To find out about our affordable gutter cleaning services please call us for a free quote at (843) 602-0821.
