3 Reasons Why Gutter Cleaning Is So Important During Fall, Vernon Center, New Jersey

The demand for gutter cleaning rises to an all-time high during autumn, when the combination of fallen leaves and rain clog up your gutters, opening up a host of other problems such as improper drainage and pest infestations. As a homeowner, it’s crucial that you seek the assistance of a professional who can help keep your home—your roofing and gutter systems, in particular—in shape to withstand inclement weather.

Here are three reasons why gutter cleaning is so important during fall:

Pest Control

Fall is synonymous with falling leaves and rain, both of which can create warm pockets of water within your gutters that become breeding grounds for pests. The moist environment brought about by the weather can encourage bugs and other pests to lay their eggs in your gutter, which can lead to an uncontrollable pest problem later. Worse, some of these insects may carry diseases that can compromise your family’s health.

Flood Management

Neglecting to clean your gutters can cause even more severe structural problems once the water freezes during the winter months.

Protection From Mold

The water damage a clogged gutter can cause is an ideal breeding ground for toxic mold. Failing to clear your gutters of leaves and other debris might mean subjecting your family to the harmful effects of mold. Mold can also hasten the decay of the exposed wooden components of your home as well as your roof’s shingles.


Gutter cleaning is an essential and inexpensive home maintenance measure that can prevent far more serious problems in the future.
