With the changing of seasons and the warm weather drying out the fallen leaves, Spring is the perfect time of year to clean out your home's gutters.
Believe it or not, clogged gutters can be one of the most damaging problems to the integrity of your home. Over the winter months, leaves and debris gather in your gutters creating nesting grounds for birds and pests, as well as a healthy home for mold
and bacteria that could possibly cause unhealthy results for your family. If left uncleaned, that debris can cause the water to overflow and cause damage to the exterior of your home as well as cracks in your foundation caused by the shifting of soil
from pooling water.
It can also cause fire hazards when floating embers from barbeques and outdoor fire pits drift to those dry leaves and smolder. Many homes have been saved during fire seasons by having defensible space around their home and clear gutters to not trap the
embers drifting through the air.
Be safe while cleaning those gutters, or hire an expert from a local company to come help.
