Why is cleaning my home’s gutters so important?
Your gutters are an integral part of your home’s exterior, which help to collect and disperse water (and small debris) away from your home. They help prevent pooling water near your home’s foundation or on your home’s roof. Clogged gutters can burst from water retention. Retained water can also breed algae, mold, and mildew, which are harmful to your family and pet’s health.
