08 Nov Why You Should Clean Your Gutters This Fall
Many people say they love falling asleep to the sound of rain. There are even apps, sound machines, and entire YouTube stations that mimic the sound of rain drops and thunderstorms to help people doze off. But how could someone sleep soundly during a real downpour with the potential risk of thousands of dollars in damage lurking in clogged rain gutters?
Cleaning your rain gutters of leaves and debris will help prevent damage to your landscaping, siding, and most importantly, your home’s foundation. Many consider fall to be the best time of year to clean your gutters, after most of the leaves are off the trees. You will also want to check for any clogged joints, especially at the corners between the gutter and the downspout.
Whether you choose to get out your ladder and rubber gloves to clear your gutters, or hire someone to do the job, it is an important household task to tackle each fall. The time or money spent now will pale in comparison to expensive water damage down the road!
