Gutter cleaning is important for so many reasons. There’s the obvious reason of making sure rain water doesn’t fall straight off the roof, but instead is channelled to downpipes and removed from the area. If the gutters are blocked, water can’t get to the downpipe, and will overflow. If gutters are blocked, it’s likely that the downpipe is also blocked. Another reason it’s important to clean your gutters, is that water sitting in the gutters with leaves and other organic matter will cause rust in your gutters. Over time, the rust will eat right through, meaning a costly gutter replacement.
