Gutters just kind of passively do their job, so they may seem like an unimportant part of your home’s maintenance routine. However, they keep water from damaging the exterior of your house and from leaking into your home to wreak all sorts of havoc. So, it’s right to say that gutters deserve some care every so often.
When you make cleaning gutters a part of your regular home care schedule, you’ll not only increase the life of the gutters, but you’ll avoid costly repairs from water damage.
In this guide, we’ll teach you not only a few ways how to clean gutters, but we’ll walk you through signs that it’s time to clean your gutters, how to prevent future clogs, and in what circumstances it might be best to call in reinforcements.
