Why is keeping your gutters and downspout clean such a big deal? Clogged gutters can cause rot to accumulate on your roof, damage the fascia and siding on your house, dump water onto unsuspecting flower beds, and provide a hospitable environment for unwelcome pests. Keeping the downspouts clean might even be more important because downspouts have the crucial job of directing water away from your house. Allowing your downspout to become clogged makes it possible for water to pool at the bottom of it. This could create flooding in your basement, erode your soil, damage your plants and, in the worst case scenario, compromise your foundation.
Additionally, your downspout may be connected to a drainage tube that carries water underground and away from the house. When this is the case, that water often goes into the city sewer system. Clogs in gutters and downspouts that break free and get into the drainage tube can create even more of a headache, causing clogs that necessitate costly emergency plumbing repairs to unclog underground pipes.
