The typical homeowner rarely places any importance on the value of washing their gutters on a regular basis. It is something that you must take into consideration, particularly in places where it regularly rains. Having clean gutters can prevent small inconveniences from becoming huge problems.
Problems That Arise From Lack Of Clean Gutters
As we mentioned before, there might be some problems that are caused by the lack of having clean gutters that could easily be solved by hiring professionals for a clean gutters service.
Do you find yourself facing any of the following problems?
- Foundation Leakage
- Debris Accumulation

If so, you might want to give us a call for estimates on your clean gutters service. Wondering how these problems are related to clean gutters?
A common concern that arises with gutter clogs is foundation leakage. Instead of being correctly led through a drainage pipe, sewage overflows because of the clog and finds its way down the house to the base of your building.
Eventually, due to the accumulation of water at the base of your house, a cracked foundation may occur. Colder temperatures causing cracks in damp foundations are not the issue in South Florida’s service area of Coast to Coast Gutters. Instead, when moist land supporting the house settles or helps the house to roll or fall, foundations can be weakened, which creates stress on the home and can lead to problems with the structure.
Unwanted water while the gutter is clogged will find its way to your home’s fascia. This, if it goes unchecked, will cause rotting wood.
Clogged gutters, and the subsequent water runoff or misdirection, may also contribute to bad landscaping and planting conditions outside your house. Excess water will erode the land around your plants entirely, killing even the youngest seedlings. The excessive moisture will draw those bugs and generate a whole new issue within itself.
For a safe and properly maintained gutter scheme, all of the issues above can be avoided. If you live in an environment with a greater population of trees, you may find yourself cleaning your gutter 3 to 6 times a year. But if you live in an environment that doesn’t include a lot of leaves, the gutter cleaning in Spring or late Fall is a reasonable rule of thumb to abide by.
It is to ensure that all or most of the leaves have been shed in order to minimize the amount of work needed by your gutters so that no sudden wind storms will blow loads of leaves into your gutter system. Gutter covers are also a perfect choice for reducing the workload.
