A gutter is a structural element of the roof that is installed to collect and direct the rainwater away from the building. Once the water gets in the gutters, it flows down the drain into the sewer or directly into the ground. Therefore, it is important to properly install the gutters and keep them clear of debris and flowing all year round.
If the gutters are left to back up the following issues may occur:
- — Unpleasant odor. The leaves and other debris in the gutters can start to rot and give off a foul odor. The smell of rot and the dampness can spread through your home.
- — New organisms. The dirt together with water can lead to mold, mildew, and other fungi growth. They can be harmful to your health, especially people who have allergies or respiratory problems.
- — Wall deterioration. Clogged gutters can overflow and start to bend, putting excessive weight on their structure and causing water damage to the siding and foundation of the building.
- — Roof damage. Water retention ok the roof can lead to leaks.
