Clean Gutters to Prevent Damage

12/5/2019 (Permalink)

The rains have come to Southern California. After months of heat, the air has cooled and downpours, hail, and grey skies are more frequent. With this weather change, dry leaves have likely fallen from trees and into your gutters. When rain floods into your gutters filled with debris, problems can ensue. Here are a few reasons clean gutters are important.

If debris is blocking water from adequately running through your gutters, it can drip over the side and onto your house. Siding can end up rotting from this undesired water drippage. If you suspect mold in your walls from overflowing gutters, SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas can assess the damage and provide the needed remediation. Overflowing water from gutters can also negatively impact your roof leading to leaks. If a roof tarp is needed and assessment of roof damage, SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas is here to help.

Gutters are designed to direct water away from structures and onto ground that is suitable for absorbing or draining water. Overflowing water from clogged gutters can pour onto ground not suitable to drain. This could cause water damage to the foundation of your home, resulting in mold, rot, cracks, and more. Foundations are expensive to repair. Cleaning your gutters can prevent this undesirable home damage.

If your roof is leaking, you discover mold on a wall, or suspect internal water damage to a wall, SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas is here to help 24/7. Most importantly though, before climbing on a ladder and your roof, take proper safety precautions. If you are not comfortable doing this, call a professional.
