What’s in Your Gutters?

by | Oct 26, 2020 | Home & Garden

Will it ever rain again? Yes, it’s been a long, hot summer and like many, I’m anxiously anticipating the first cool rainy day of the season. But not just yet – it is time to prepare your gutters (otherwise known as your home’s flood control system) for the winter season.
Gutter cleaning and repair popularity typically peaks in the fall and early winter months. In fact, for optimum function, your rain gutters should be cleaned twice per year. The fall cleaning is focused on ensuring your gutters are clear to handle the winter rains to prevent flooding and water damage. But once the rain subsides, it is easy to forget the wind-driven deposits of leaves, sticks, seeds and roof sediment that have collected in your gutters during the winter months. Now this stuff has been baking in your gutters all summer, is rock hard and unlikely to be washed away by our first rain event. In addition to vegetative matter, we often find toys, dead animals, and pieces of roofing materials. Nothing can block a downspout like a tennis ball! Before you add another full year of build-up, it’s time to take the steps to ensure your home is protected and your gutters are functioning properly.
