The Best Way to Clean Gutters
Doing your annual gutter cleaning? Here's the best way to do it—from prep work to gunk and debris removal. Installing rain gutters not only protects your home’s landscaping and siding, gutters also prevent damage to your home’s foundation.
When gutters fill with leaves, sticks and other debris, this can cause clogs and result in water creeping under the roof and sometimes, into the foundation. Clogged gutters can also lead to ice dams in the winter. That’s why it’s important to be cleaning out your gutters, especially in the fall. You should clean your gutters at a minimum of once a year. You should do it more often if you have overhanging trees and after a big storm.
