Clean Your Gutters Before Snow Arrives

19 Jan2016

Weather experts are predicting a lot of snow in the near future, meaning you’re running out of time to get your gutters cleaned! During the fall and winter months, your gutters have more than likely accumulated leaves and other debris, which can cause a lot of damage during the cold months if not removed.

There are many benefits to preparing your gutters and downspouts for brutal winter weather. However, if you choose to wait until you notice a problem, your home can suffer from more serious damage down the line. Cleaning your gutters and downspouts cannot only improve the overall look of your home, but it can also prevent water damage and nesting of unwanted vermin!

When gutters and downspouts are cleaned and properly functioning, they will direct water away from the structure of your home, which is what they should do! On the other hand, clogged gutters will result in water to collecting around your foundation. This can cause leakage into your basement, which is a huge financial burden.

Clogged gutters can also create standing water which invites unwanted pests such as mosquitoes, carpenter ants, and even rodents. These pests can make their way into your home if they are living in your gutters. Cleaning your gutters can prevent these pests from invading your home and causing further damage.
