Clean Your Gutters Before The Holidays

10 Dec2015

Gutter cleaning– two words we can bet that no one enjoys hearing, especially during the chaotic holiday season! Thankfully, KEVCO can take this stress off your hands by helping ensure that your gutters are clean and free of debris before mother nature hits the Washington, D.C., MD, and VA area with her harsh winter elements. It’s also a smart service to consider before hanging Christmas lights on your home, as the debri build-up in your gutters could pose dangerous threats when exposed to christmas lights.

Cleaning your gutters and downspouts before winter arrives is imperative if you want to avoid costly home repairs. The main purpose of your home’s gutters is to control the water around your home, and if they are blocked by leaves, acorns, twigs, or any other kind of debris they are prevented from performing their main duty. The last thing you want is to pay for home damage during the holiday season!

There are many benefits to preparing your gutters and downspouts for the cold months. However, if you choose to wait until you notice a problem, your home can suffer much more serious damage down the line. Cleaning your gutters and downspouts can prevent water damage inside of your home 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. Clogged gutters will cause water to collect around your foundation, which in turn, will likely cause leakage in your basement.

Clogged gutters can also create standing water which invites unwanted pests such as mosquitoes, carpenter ants, and rodents. If these nasty pests have made a home in your gutters they can make their way into your home, and cause even more damage.

With KEVCO’s cleaning services our team can help you prepare for the winter by cleaning your gutters and downspouts. Don’t risk your safety by climbing your old ladder to check the gutters, instead let professionals take the stress for you. The cold weather that is expected this year near Washington, D.C. will freeze the water in your downspouts, which ultimately can affect your home’s ability to flush water properly.

Avoid potential damage to your home by preparing your gutters and downspouts as soon as possible! For all your Washington, D.C., MD, and VA gutter and downspout cleaning needs, call KEVCO Building Services Inc. at 800.315.3444 or go to the web at kevco1.com and request gutter cleaning services!
