Ideally, clean your gutters twice a year to ensure they function properly and protect your home from water damage. The best times to clean your gutters in Western Kentucky are:
- Mid-Spring: Cleaning your gutters in mid- spring is essential. If you have trees around your home, you likely have branches and other debris that have accumulated over the winter. Pine trees have shed their needles. “Whirly birds” have fallen off the maple trees. By cleaning them in mid-spring, you can remove any accumulated debris and ensure water flows freely through your gutters and downspouts during the spring rain showers.
- Late Fall: In Western Kentucky, the fall season brings falling leaves and other debris from nearby trees. These leaves can accumulate in your gutters and cause clogs, leading to water damage. Cleaning your gutters in late fall, after most of the leaves have fallen, ensures that your gutters are clear of debris and ready to handle whatever the winter season brings with the winter snow and ice.
However, if your home is surrounded by many trees or if you experience significant storms, you might need to clean your gutters more frequently. In such cases, it’s essential to monitor your gutters and clean them as needed to prevent clogs and potential damage to your home.
