Cleaning out the gutters can be a tedious chore, as it requires you to climb on the roof and remove all twigs and leaves stuck around. Doing chores have never been fun but are very important. Similarly cleaning your rain gutters are also very important to keep your house in good shape. The gutters present on your roof are built so that all the rain water gets collected in them and is drained away.

Rain gutters do not let the rain water accumulate around the foundations and prevents your basement from flooding. But they can only prevent that from happening if they are clean. If not cleaned, leaves and twigs can get stuck and cause obstruction to the flow of water. Eventually causing damage to your roof and mold problems in your house.
