Why is gutter cleaning vital to property maintenance?

Cleaning the insides of gutters may not rank high for home maintenance for some, but regular upkeep is essential. Gutters are designed to allow the rainfall to drain away from the roof and be guided away from the building preventing potential damage to the interior and the structure.
