Finally, a timely reminder to always keep your gutters clean and free of debris. All sorts of debris can find its way into your gutters, especially leaves from nearby trees. It’s recommended that you clear your gutters at least twice a year. Towards the end of autumn is a particularly sensible time to do it, since that’s when most trees have shed their leaves for the year.
You can clear your gutters by hand, simply by using a ladder to move along the roof line and remove debris as you go. Alternatively, you can even install gutter guards that prevent larger debris from getting into your gutters in the first place.
Without clearing your gutters, blockages can occur in your downpipes, water doesn’t flow out correctly, and ultimately you end up with water spilling out over your gutters. That sort of extra weight and pressure can also further damage your gutters. So, with quality products and regular maintenance, you can stop rainwater from causing unnecessary damage around your home.
