In Georgia and other parts of the Southeast, fall is the time of year when leaves and other debris tend to settle into your home’s gutters. As the cold weather of winter arrives after that, clogged gutters can result in damage to your home’s foundation and exterior, possibly allowing critters to make their way into the recesses in and around your home. While you may be tempted to take an often-unsafe DIY approach to cleaning out your gutters, it’s important to remember that having them professionally cleaned is smarter and essential for several reasons. 

Reasons for Professional Gutter Cleaning 

The primary reason for having your gutters professionally cleaned is to prevent clogged gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters can lead to inadequate drainage and foundation damage, which can result in costly repairs or even water damage to your home’s exterior. Additionally, the weight of clogged gutters can cause damage to the exterior of your home and create an easy entry point for critters, pests, and insects. Once these creatures gain access to your home’s recesses, they can live in crawlspaces or attics and cause further damage—and leave a mess behind them as well.
