In Anticipation of April Showers-How About a Rain Gutter Cleaning?
Date posted: March 18, 2013
Spring is the air. The snow is melting, and the temperatures are rising, which means it is time to get outside and enjoy the season. However, it also means spring cleaning and taking care of some home maintenance chores in anticipation of those April showers. If having your gutters cleaned is not at the top of that list, it is time to put it there. Here are a few reasons why:
The spring season can be a time of unusually high amounts of rain and numerous thunderstorms, and while that water may be good for your gardens and flower beds, it is not necessarily good for your home. Clean gutters in good condition prevent water from dropping against your house and pooling around the foundation. If your home is continually submitted to this type of dampness, it can eventually cause foundation and structural damage.
Throughout the year, gutters fill with mud and debris that clog them and prevent them from serving their purpose. Gutters that remain clogged and heavy with water will stop working, cause overflows and possibly even break away from your home. The standing water can also lead to bug infestations from pests such as mosquitoes.
Some homeowners may try to remove the debris and mud themselves, but not only can it take all day if you are not a professional, it can also be dangerous, because it involves ladders and climbing up on top of the roof. Also, if the job is not done properly, you may end up damaging the gutters which can be a costly mistake in the long run. Instead of risking your life and your property, contact Rose City for a professional spring gutter cleaning.
