Frequently Asked Questions About Gutter Cleaning

Why is gutter cleaning important?

Regularly cleaning your gutters is an important safeguard against water damage to the interior and exterior of your home. When gutters and downspouts are clogged they do not properly channel rainwater and moisture away from your foundation. Over time, this can lead to roof leaks, foundation damage, and water in your basement or crawl space. In the winter, clogged gutters can turn into ice dams.

How often should I have my gutters cleaned?

Once or twice a year will keep 99% of homes or properties fully functional. There are some extreme cases where extreme measures are required. You know who you are. Call us, we can help.

To avoid blockages and costly repairs we recommend being on a maintenance schedule.

How do I know when my gutters need to be cleaned?

The obvious sign is when the trees around your home lose their leaves, pine needles, seed pods, and flowers. Are you raking the leaves from your yard? That means they are likely piling up in your gutters too.

When it rains you may notice water pouring out the top of the gutters. This can happen sometimes in extremely heavy rains even when your gutters are empty, however, if it’s not a hurricane it’s likely your gutters need cleaning.

Are gutter guards or screens a good way to avoid gutter cleaning?

As gutter professionals, we do not recommend them. With any type of gutter cover, leaves and debris still find a way in. Water can also run over the covers, which leads to the same issues you can have if your gutters were clogged. Next Level Gutters does not install guards or screens, we recommend you join our maintenance schedule to ensure your gutters are clean and working properly.
