How many times have you forgotten to clean out the rain gutters only to find your rooftop ceiling damped and cold? Eavestrough cleaning is an often neglected task, but that does not reduce its importance.

Property insurance companies suggest that house owners invest in gutter cleaning at least once a year. If you live close to trees, you should have your eavestroughs cleaned in the spring after the buds fall and again in the fall when the leaves fall. In case you wonder why regular cleaning of the eaves trough is important, here are two major reasons:
Many insurance companies don’t cover the cost of a basement flood or water damage to ceilings if you have didn’t have your eavestroughs cleaned. They view such lack of maintenance as “neglect” on the homeowners part. Insurance adjusters know exactly what to look for and you can be guaranteed that clogged eavestrough will be the first thing they hope to see in order to deny your claim. Don’t let this happen to you. Get your eavestroughs cleaned regular, by a professional company who can document that it was done, absolving you of all risk and damages.
Prevent flooding in your basement. During heavy rains, if your troughs are clogged, water will pour down the side of your home and down the foundation into the basement.
In the winter time, if your troughs are not flowing properly, ice backs up and under the shingles, causing flooding in your ceiling. Both of these can be avoided if you have a proper maintenance program in place.
