Spring is officially here! Finally! While you are outside enjoying all the sunshine, green grass and spring flowers don't forget about some very important home maintenance that can save you thousands of dollars, what am I talking about? Yep, it's time to get your gutter cleaned!
The National Center for Healthy Housing recommends cleaning your gutters at least twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, although it may be a good idea to check them for debris more frequently.
Here is Bend, Oregon we are surrounded by beautiful Ponderosa trees. These trees shed many of their needles through the fall and winter with high winds and storms and can cause big problems with your gutter system if let untreated.
Without removal, these needles will cause a buildup in your gutters and downspouts prohibiting water from flowing through them. A debris-clogged gutter can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home costing you thousands of dollars in repairs. Contractors also say gunked-up gutters make nice homes for pests, rodents, mold and honeycombs from bee infestations.
Do the job yourself or hire?
An article on Angie's List cites that although cleaning gutters is a task most most homowners can do themselves, it can be dangerous work. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, falls from ladders sent more than 240,000 Americans to hospital emergency rooms in 2009 (the most recent year available).
