Here at ArmorGuard, we (obviously) get a lot of questions about gutters. One question that we hear more often than most is this: “How often do I need to clean my gutters?” There are actually multiple answers to that question. Which answer you get depends on a few factors. Let’s see which answer suits your needs best based on these factors.
As a general rule of thumb, the answer is usually twice a year. That’s casting a wide net, but essentially homes with traditional gutters could stand to be cleaned twice annually–once in the spring and again in the fall. Cleaning the build up of debris early in the spring season gets your gutters ready for the impending blossoming and blooming detritus that accompanies the April showers and May flowers. Taking up the task again in late Fall also prepares your home for the dreary rains that follow the messy hurricane season each year here in Florida.
Other factors can also influence how often you’ll need to hop on the ladder (or pay someone else to) to clear out your traditional gutters. If you are fortunate enough to live in an area that has big, beautiful trees you may need to make an extra trip or two up to clear excess leaves, nuts, or pine needles and cones from your gutters.
The better answer is….never! That’s the return on your investment you get with installing gutter guards from Gutter Helmet.
