Essential home maintenance this winter must include gutter cleaning. Here are three ways gutter cleaning. protects your home in winter:
- ward off water damage: gutters are part of the system designed to move water and debris away from your roof and home. Autumn leaves and sticks often clog gutters resulting in stagnant water and decaying debris. Resting water can lead to mold and mildew growth, dampness in the walls and even damage the structural integrity of the building.
- control pests: disease carrying mosquitos lay eggs in resting water. The dormant eggs wait until warmer weather to hatch. The Australian Government Department of Health suggests cleaning out roof gutters to prevent the breading of mosquitos and the subsequent spreading of Ross River Virus and Barmah Forest Virus.
- save money: excessive weight from debris can cause gutters to pull away from their attachments. Stagnant water can also lead to gutter corrosion. Maintenance of your existing gutters saves money on major repairs and replacement guttering.
