If you live in a wooded area, chances are your Gutters are backed up with pine needles and other debris. This can cause 2 unwanted situations. The first a fire danger. During dry season fires are sometimes a weekly occurence. Flying ash and ambers can travel miles landing on roofs and gutters. If your roof or gutters are covered with these dry materials,they can ignite very quickly.
The second is this: Long gutter systems become very heavy if the water cannot escape thru the downspouts. This added weight can cause the gutters to sag, pulling out the anchors holding them to the building.
Periodic cleaning and removal can prevent these situations from happening. If you are uncomfortable doing this yourself because of the need to work off a ladder, give us a call. This is just one of many services Elliotts Cleaning provides.
