In 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that nearly 540,000 people went to a doctor’s office, emergency room, or hospital due to ladder-related injuries. It is no laughing matter: falling off a roof or ladder can be very serious, and even fatal:
- Falling from a height of 20 feet or more brings a 50% chance of fatality
- Falls are the second-leading cause of death for 57-79 year-old males
- Falls account for more than half of all fatalities for those over 65
So instead of DIY, just SOS Princeton Gutters for twice-yearly for gutter cleaning service — and even ask us about installing our recommended gutter leaf guards, so you can avoid gutter cleaning cost concerns in the future.
The fact is, you need unclogged gutters to keep your home or commercial building in its best condition. Gutters and downspouts facilitate proper water flow (from rain and melting ice) away from your roof and your building’s foundation, and leaves, nests, twigs, and so on will dangerously impede their proper functioning. The list of potential problems from clogged gutters is long, but includes:
- Eroding or cracking foundation (dirt, roots, small creatures, water enter your first floor and basement)
- Damaging roof beams and shingles (water and creatures enter, indoor cooling and heating costs escape)
- Rotting wood (building could partially collapse)
- Peeling paint (facade’s beauty ruined, neighborhood gossip invited, costly repainting required)
- Breeding mold growth inside and out (very difficult to remove, breathed into lungs, furniture ruined)
- Breeding mosquitoes, ants, and other small creatures (find new homes in food, pets, people, beds, etc.)
- Eroding landscaping (time-consuming and expensive replacement)
So why risk all these serious and often highly expensive situations that can result from not having your gutters cleaned annually and properly?
