Rain runoff can pool near your foundation, causing leaks or damage. Gutters that aren't working well might pull away from the roof, resulting in further home disrepair. Clean your gutters twice a year: once in spring and once in fall. Regular maintenance will help prevent leaves and debris from clogging water flow. 

 

Here's how:

  1. Find a sturdy, safe ladder that will reach your gutters.
  2. Wear work gloves to pull out clumps of debris. 
  3. Have a bucket handy or toss debris onto the ground below. 
  4. Use a wire brush to loosen stubborn accumulation. 
  5. Rinse with a hose.

 

If you find holes, gaps, rusty spots, detached gutters or downspouts, damage, or missing parts; it's well worth it to take care of these issues sooner rather than later. I always recommend having someone spot you when using a ladder, for two reasons. One: they can be your runner so you don't have to climb up and down; and two: they can be a second set of eyes for your safety or in case of an emergency. If climbing up a ladder and digging around in gutters isn't your cup or tea or you simply don't have time, give me a call. I'm happy to help connect you with local resources who can support you in keeping your home as spectacular as the day you purchased it.
