Clean Your Gutters Before Winter Arrives

24 Nov2015

Gutter cleaning– two words we can bet that no one enjoys hearing, or doing for that matter. Through gutter and downspout cleaning, KEVCO can help 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.

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.

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 t can  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. 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.
