Gutter cleaning is a dangerous and difficult chore. It is time consuming and unpleasant. Unfortunately, most people put off cleaning out their gutter systems until there is a problem.
You can avoid the accumulation of debris by cleaning your gutters at least once per year (although bi-annual cleanings after the spring and fall seasons are recommended); however, gutter cleaning is an inconvenient and, quite honestly, dangerous task that you probably do not want to add to your yearly home maintenance schedule.
Gutter cleaning can be dangerous, but it is very important to keep it clean. You should have your gutter cleaned twice a year to avoid damage to your home. If you don’t clean your gutters your house could suffer from a number of awful things.
Spring and fall is the best time for cleaning gutters. They are the months that do the most for gathering gross sediment. If you have covers on them then you can avoid big pieces like leaves from getting in there and the damage will be way less intense. Also the cleaning will be easier. You can use plastic mesh, wire mesh or specifically made covers for your system.
