Summer is finally here, which means warmer weather, fun in the sun, and summer chores! While this may not be the most exciting task, it is crucial for the longevity of your home. During the summer you may have to clean up leaves, debris, and bird nests from your gutters. Gutters help keep your home from flooding and protect the foundation by sending precipitation away from your home.
With erratic weather and the amount of rainfall happening in all parts of the country, it’s wise to make sure your gutters are up to snuff and working properly, and that means making sure they’re not clogged up with even the smallest backup.
That being the case, you might not want to think of yard work or other activities that might result in sweating and hurt backs. After all, summer should be relaxing, and we get that, but summer should be a time of rejuvenation and self-improvement, taking that rebirth feeling from spring and multiplying it by ten. Consider cleaning your gutters, especially if you didn’t do it the season before.
Here are a few tips for flushing your gutters:
Use a Proper Ladder
When cleaning gutters be sure to use a sturdy ladder, and have a spotter if possible. This will ensure your safety. While on the ladder, remove any large debris that can be thrown away.
Rinse Them Out
Use a hose to spray any remaining twigs, branches, and other debris.
Things smaller than leaves will wreak havoc on your gutter system if it’s not properly maintained. You don’t have to do a complete overhaul, just make sure there’s nothing obvious going wrong.
