Can Gutters Be Cleaned in the Winter? 

Top Care Cleaning is one of the only gutter cleaning companies able to properly clean gutters during the winter months. 

Our Proprietary System of 220 degree van powered water lines will thaw ice formed around leaves and debris in your gutters. Having your gutters cleaned out is a great way to reduce the risk of water damage in the upcoming winter months. 

Additionally, Top Care Cleaning also offers Rooftop Snow Removal Service to help reduce the damage caused by ice build-up and the additional weight of the snow on your eaves. 

Why should I have my gutters cleaned? 

Last winter, many homeowners around Grand Rapids felt the ill effects of not having their gutters cleaned out before the snow started to melt. Clogged Gutters can lead to water backing up under your shingles causing water damage. The rain water can also flow over top of your gutters landing near the foundation of your home. This can possibly lead to water in your basement. 

Here are 5 reasons to get your gutters cleaned out, even if it is during the winter months: 

1. Prevent Water Damage: During winter, melting snow and ice can cause water to back up if gutters are clogged. This can lead to water damage on your roof and inside your home.

2. Avoid Ice Dams: Clogged gutters can contribute to the formation of ice dams on the roof. These dams prevent melting snow from draining off the roof, potentially leading to leaks and damage to the roof and house.

3. Reduce the Risk of Frozen Gutters: When debris clogs gutters, the trapped water can freeze, adding weight and strain to the gutter system. This can cause gutters to pull away from the house or even collapse.

4. Maintain Gutter Health: Regular cleaning extends the life of your gutters. During winter, the added weight of snow and ice can cause additional stress on gutters. Keeping them clean helps prevent premature wear and tear.

5. Avoid Pests: Gutters filled with leaves and debris can be attractive to pests like rodents and insects. Cleaning them out regularly, even in winter, helps deter these pests from nesting in your gutters.

Having your gutters cleaned out is a great preventative measure for the upcoming winter months. Clean gutters allow water to flow freely to your downspouts which will direct the water away from your house.
