5 Problems That Result from Not Cleaning Your Gutters

Professional Pressure Cleaning Service

The wet weather is well and truly here right now in Australia; and that means that your gutters are probably getting chock-full of dirt, debris, and other muck.

A lot of homeowners underestimate the importance of having their gutters cleaned. After all, your gutters are responsible for defending your home against water damage. However, when the debris are left to accumulate, they can end up causing damage to your home.

Here are 5 problems that result from not cleaning your gutters that you should consider1.

1. Structural Damage

It might sound dramatic but neglecting clogged gutters could end up causing your home to fall apart. If debris are allowed to build up in your gutters, it can not only cause your gutters to burst or pull away from the house. Aside from this, excess water can also seep into your walls and then into your floors and foundation, creating damage along the way.

2. Roof Damage

Once your gutters become too clogged, you can generally expect your roof to soak up some of the excess water as well. Although the damage starts small, it can quickly progress, especially since your roof can take a long time to dry out again. Before long, you may notice leaks in your ceiling, or water dripping down the exterior and interior walls. 

3. Dampened Aesthetic

It goes without saying that so far, all the structural damage that clogged gutters have the potential to cause are bound to leave your home looking more than a little shabby. Of course, structural damage is not only expensive to fix, but also a bit of an eyesore. Clogged gutters themselves can also dampen the look of your property, even before they have the chance to cause damage.    

4. Mould

With trapped moisture comes the growth of mould, which is not only unsightly but can also pose as a dangerous health risk. This is especially true if you live with people who are immunocompromised.  When inhaled, mould can affect your health by triggering nasal congestion, coughing, wheezing and even respiratory infections. For those who already deal with allergies or asthma, it can make conditions worse. 

5. Pests

Finally, clogged gutters create the perfect habitat or breeding ground for pests, including insects like mosquitoes, bees, wasps, and even small animals like rodents or birds. Eventually, these pests are bound to make their way into your home, or

What top class people the ProFlowa guys are. Couldn't get a more professional, nicer team on the job. Gutters are now clean and while they were at it they kindly volunteered to replace two broken tiles on the roof that they had found. Total professionalism and absolutely no mess. TY.
