Like it or not, summer is over and autumn is here. A time when leaves begin to change and fall off your trees, and onto your house and in your gutters.
Before the leaves start to fall, give your gutters a good, thorough cleaning. Get up on the ladder and remove any debris that has collected over the summer months, and then hose them down with a high-pressure spray. For a better clean, pour some mild, soapy water down your gutters to wash away more stubborn dirt and grime.
CHECK FOR LEAKS AND DAMAGES
While you’re up on your ladder, cleaning your gutters, take this as an opportunity to check for any leaks or other forms of damage. The colder months can make cracks, holes, and leaks even worse, so it’s a good idea to find and fix these problem areas before the temperature begins to drop.
TRIM NEARBY TREES AND BRANCHES
Autumn is notorious for falling leaves. As beautiful as these leaves may be, they are not as beautiful when they’re clogging up your gutter. You can’t stop the leaves from falling, but you can control where they fall by trimming any nearby trees and branches in the late summer months.
With these few steps, your house and your gutters should be well-prepared for the autumn months. However, cleaning and maintaining your gutters can be hard work on your own. For a helping hand, contact us at Gutter Boyz of Kentucky.
