The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. The gutter also helps to reduce erosion, prevents leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provides a means to collect rainwater for later use Clogged gutters can cause water leakage into the house as the water backs up. Clogged gutters can also lead to stagnant water build up which allows mosquitoes to breed and also allows grasses and weeds to grow in the gutter.
Gutters must be maintained regularly to remove leaves and other debris to keep them from clogging. Gutters that are filled with debris can overflow and soak the foundation, damage the roof structure, and exacerbate ice dams in cold climates.
Effective gutter guards that keep debris out but allow water to enter are a good alternative to regular cleaning.
Gutter safety tools include strainers, snap-in metal and plastic gutter guards, stainless steel gutter guards, and gutter brushes.
Apart from the gutter guard shield used, all gutter structures should be checked for cleaning and repair twice annually.
You can also use a closed gutter to make sure that dirt and leaves do not penetrate the gutter. The continuous hanger can also protect gutters from clogging.
