Cleaning Gutters Prevents Water Damage

10/25/2016 (Permalink)

If plants are growing better in your gutter than your garden, it's a sign!

With the leaves falling, it’s time to clean the gutters. We know this is not the most pleasant chore, but it can prevent major water damage. A gutter system is designed to carry water away from the home. A blocked gutter can cause water to back up into your home either through the roof or the basement. We have already seen a few cases this year where water damage could have been prevented if only the gutters had been cleaned.  A few steps that are recommended, is using a scope to remove the gunk that has built up, then actually hose down the gutter itself. These steps keep water from standing in the gutters, which can lead to wood rot or bug infestations. Be safe and have an additional person at the foot of the ladder to help with anything that may be dropped or to steady the ladder during a wind gust!
