The Importance of Gutter Systems During Monsoons
Gutter Systems Are Important
Rain gutters serve an extremely useful purpose to your home or business. When a rainstorm hits, it helps to protect and steer water away from your home and foundation. That is why it is important to take care of your gutter system and clean it regularly to prevent clogs from occurring.
Clean and Maintain
During Scottsdale's monsoon season, a lot of debris can fly around during the high winds that take place during monsoons and can clog up your rain gutters. When your rain gutters are full of debris, the rainwater can start to back up and not drain properly. This can lead to water pooling on your roof and causing damage such as possible rot and deterioration, mold growth, as well as damaged shingles. Downspouts play an important role in the gutter system as they allow the water from the roof gutters to safely drain out and a safe distance away from your home and its foundation.
It’s important to be aware of the possible damages that could take place if you don’t have a proper gutter system in place that is not cleaned and maintained ahead of monsoon season here in the Valley. If you find that your home is dealing with water damage from a gutter system that has caused water damage to your roof or other areas of your home, give SERVPRO of Scottsdale a call.
