Before It Snows, Clear Your Gutters

If you own a home, it’s incredibly important for you to get into the habit of cleaning out your gutters at least twice every year. With winter approaching, now is the time to make sure that your home’s drainage system is clean and clear.

Clogged GuttersIn general, you should clean your gutters out in the fall and in the spring to ensure that they are free and clear and able to move water when it rains and snows. You should be especially mindful of cleaning your gutters in the fall because of all the debris that can get stuck in them and cause problems once winter hits. Throughout the autumn season, leaves, sticks, twigs, dirt and other types of debris will find their way into your gutter system and stay there throughout the cold months unless you take the time to clean them out in the fall.

Clogged gutters can present some major problems in the winter once snow begins to fall. If melting snow isn’t able to move through your gutters easily, it can end up stuck in your drainage in the form of ice. As it freezes, it further stops up the melt water and makes your gutters extremely heavy. As these ice dams form, they can do damage to your gutters, your roof and your home as a whole.
