Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and it likely does not make the list of anyone's favorite chores. However, neglected gutters can contribute to many problems. A gutter full of debris may attract roaches, and gutters full of water can cause mildew and mold growth. Undisturbed gutters can become home to birds' nests and beehives, and ones that are clogged can overflow and result in water damage to your home and yard.
Oakton is in the top 63.3% percentile in the country in terms of average daily precipitation, which makes protecting your gutters — and, consequently, your yard and your home — even more important.

Unclogged, free-flowing gutters are also at less risk for premature rust or corrosion, which will save you money on repair and replacement.
