Several experts suggest cleaning the gutters two-time a year in the early fall / late summer season and one-time in the late season of spring. But there are a few things that you might want to consider. If you have trees that grow above your home or office building, consider inspecting your gutters every three months.
How often should gutters be cleaned?
The answer is twice per year. In Toledo, Ohio, the biggest concern is ice. Making sure that your gutters are clean all winter is a bit of a hassle, but ice damage to your roof is a real pain. It’s always better to stop it before it begins. A good rule of thumb to note when you need to clean your gutters is to combine it with other time related tasks, like:
- Changing the porch light bulbs
- Switching out the smoke detector batteries
- Paying your car insurance premiums
- Resetting your clocks for daylight savings time
- Rotating tires on your car
The gutters in your home or office might not seem so critical, but they actually play a large part in preserving the structural integrity of your home and that’s why it’s important to clean your gutters twice yearly at a minimum.
