Fall Home Maintenance - Clean Your House Gutters!

Fall Home Maintenance - Clean Your House Gutters!  Fall is here and the importance of cleaning your house gutters is a major Home Maintenance issue made most obvious at this time of year.  The House Gutter is designed to move the passage of rain water away from your Home.  Throughout the years that we have been selling homes, one thing that most home inspectors have stressed is that house gutters must be kept clean.  Easily overlooked by many homeowners, House Gutters are somewhat out of site and therefore forgotten.

You may not think it's very important but take a look at these photos of what occurs when clogged House Gutters are overlooked:

     Cleaning House Gutters                           

 

When the beautiful Fall leaves from the trees stay undisturbed in a House Gutter, they actually begin to take root and grow new trees right there in your house gutter.  Often the growth will start to push up on the shingles of the roof.  Yikes!  This can become a major problem on the outside of your home and can even cause roof leaks.  Like many folks, Fall is my favorite time of year but take a look at what happens when those beautiful leaves begin to fall into your House Gutters.

Once the Fall Leaves have made a home in your House Gutters, the first good rain storm can clog the passage of the rain away from your home.  Illustrated in this next photo.  The rain is beginning to cascade over the Gutter like a waterfall. 

 Fall Leaves in House Gutters

The following photo illustrates the next path of the rainfall when your House Gutters are left unattended and stop doing their intended job.  With no place left to go, the rain fall ultimately ends up making a path to your home's foundation.  Many people mistake wet basements for flood plain issues when many times it's due to Clogged House Gutters

 Basement Mold

Keeping House Gutters clean helps prevent a variety of problems that might crop up and cost a homeowner more than just money.  When the rain follows it's natural path down to your home's foundation, an unsuspecting homeowner may find out too late that their basement walls are growing mold.  Protect your investment this Fall and remember that Fall Home Maintenance means Clean Your House Gutters!
