Do You Still Have To Clean Gutters With Gutter Guards?

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 by Michael Fortenberry

Clogs, in general, can be quite damaging. Clogged drains can damage your plumbing system. A clogged fuel injector can keep your engine from starting. Clogged arteries can even kill you! Rain gutters should be added to the list of annoying and troublesome clogs to avoid, if for nothing else, because you so hate to have to clean them. The solution is then, of course, to install rain gutter guards in Lamb County, TX. Doing so relieves you of the need ever to clean your gutters again, right?


Do You Still Have To Clean Gutters With Gutter Guards

Unfortunately, no. While rain gutter guards in Lamb County, TX, will stop leaves and larger debris from building up in your gutters, smaller debris like dirt and shingle granules can still accumulate on top of them, with a few minute flecks even passing into the gutters themselves. This can eventually block water from entering the gutters at all, causing it to fall and pool at the side of your home. Thus, it's recommended you clean gutters with gutter guards at least once a year.

The Proper Cleaning Process

Cleaning gutters with gutter guards is a fairly straightforward process:

  • The guards are removed and brushed or cleaning of any debris that has accumulated on top of them.
  • Any small debris buildup inside the gutters is removed using a spade or scraping tool.
  • Water is flushed through the gutter system and observed running out of the downspouts.
  • The guards are inspected for any chips or damage before being reattached.
