Water damage that results from leaking or overflowing gutters and remains untreated for a long enough time, damage to the home’s soffit and fascia could occur. As soon as soffit and fascia damage is noticed, it should be immediately fixed. You can count on the professionals at Gutter Cleaning Appleton to repair the damage and restore your home to the condition it was when it was new.
Gutter cleaning is a necessary part of your routine home maintenance program. Ensuring that your gutter systems are free of debris prevents costly home repairs later on down the road. Residential and commercial gutter systems need cleaning a minimum of two times per year; once in the mid to late autumn after the leaves and debris fall, and then again in the spring. If the property has many trees that surround the home, additional cleanings throughout the year should occur.
Costly repairs that may arise when you neglect to clean your gutter systems, which results in silent damage to your property. The silent damage that may occur when gutters become clogged includes damage to the gutters themselves, damage to the roof, damage to the foundation, damage to the building’s siding, damage to the landscape, including more.
Damage to the gutter system itself includes things such as , loosening of the hangers and hidden hangers, which leads to sagging of the eavestrough. Sagging pulls the eavestrough of the gutter system away from the home or building. When that occurs the gutters end up not catching and moving the water. When this occurs, rotting of the soffit and fascia is a result.
Damage to the roof occurs when the clogging of the eavestrough of the gutter system is so severe, the water fills up to the level of the roof and seeps into the wood.
The protection of your home’s foundation is paramount. When water seeps over the sides of the eavestrough and improperly runs alongside the siding of your home, it creates an erosion of the landscape directly surrounding the foundation. Over time, the pooling of water can lead to leaking in the basement, causing mold and other kinds of serious problems. It can also cause your foundation to weaken and shift. Overflowing gutters can cause the siding to buckle, warp, and even rot behind your siding.

The History of Rain Gutter Systems
Using rain gutter systems dates back many years to between 3,000 BC and 1,500 BC, first appearing in the Indus Valley civilization. The Indus Valley civilization was in south Asia during the Bronze Age era. The people of this valley put in use elaborate drainage systems. The Romans brought gutter system technology to the British region around 47 AD. Most people are probably unaware that the purpose of gargoyles was not only for ascetics but also for use as a gutter system.
With the reduction in cost and increase in the availability of cast iron during the 1700s, it swiftly rose in notoriety, replacing lead gutters. In the 1960s with the invention of the seamless aluminum gutter system, the industry saw a drastic improvement. Aluminum continues to be the dominant metal in use among those in the industry yet today, although there are alternatives to metal gutter systems.
Do It Yourself (DIY) Gutter Cleaning
We always recommend you have a professional like us at Gutter Cleaning Appleton to clean your gutters. However, if you are do-it-yourselfer and are considering cleaning out your own gutters, and want to save a few bucks, here are a few tips you should take into consideration. The first and foremost important aspect to cleaning gutters is safety. The risk of falling is high while cleaning gutters because you must climb a ladder and lean to both the left and right, which puts the person at risk of injury or falls. For this reason, only reach an arm’s length in either direction. Using a ladder stabilizer, or ladder standoffs will help reduce the risk of falls and to prevent damage to the gutter system’s eavestrough.
Dress for the job at hand, expect to get dirty as we typically find some nasty stuff in the eavestrough. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and a good thick pair of work gloves. The stronger the gloves, the better. Sometimes screws can stick out and cause cuts. Also, the sides of the gutters can be sharp if cleaning a metal gutter.
Remember to use a bucket to collect the gutter debris to prevent the landscape below from getting soiled. It will be an excellent idea to lay a tarp down to have an extra layer of protection. To remove the debris from the gutter, use a small plastic gutter scoop which is available wherever you purchase your hardware and items for all your home improvement projects.
After removing all the gutter debris, use your garden hose to flush the gutters. Doing so will allow for a more thorough cleaning of your gutters and will also alert you should they contain any leaks. If you notice that your gutters are leaking, then you should have Gutter Cleaning Appleton come out to your home to repair or replace them.
