With the New Year underway, time is running out to get your Montgomery County gutters and downspouts prepared. During the fall months, your gutters accumulated leaves and other debris that can cause a lot of damage during the winter if not removed.
There are many benefits to preparing your gutters and downspouts for the winter. 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 appearance 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. Clogged gutters will cause water to collect around your foundation, which in turn, can cause leakage in your basement.
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.
