Keep Your Gutters Clean This Fall
Despite how important gutters are, it is easy for homeowners to forget about them. Unfortunately, if you do not pay any mind to them, they can become clogged with leaves and debris. This is especially true in autumn when the leaves fall regularly. If you want to increase the lifespan of your gutters, then you need to keep them clean.
Here are four tips to keep your gutters clean this fall.
Clean the Gutter Thoroughly
If you want your gutter to stay clean in autumn, then you need to make sure that you clean them regularly. The longer you let it build up the harder it will be to clean. You need to make sure you are cleaning them thoroughly each time or the left-over debris will continue to add up.
Consider Gutter Guards
Gutter guards or covers come in many different styles. You can choose a solid guard that covers most, but not all of the gutter. This allows water to enter your gutters while keeping sticks, leaves, and debris out. Other guards are installed over the gutter with strategic holes throughout it. Some guards are simply meshed screens.
Trim Trees to Reduce Leaves and Debris
Trees are the biggest culprit when it comes to a clogged gutter system. Decaying twigs, pine needles, and leaves fall from the trees and into the gutter. This builds up over a period and can create an environment where other plants can grow or animals can make nests. Keeping your trees trimmed and healthy will reduce this risk.
