Cleaning Your Gutters
Homeownership comes with a lot of responsibility. There is a lot of regular maintenance that needs to be done that you don't think about when you rent, like keeping your gutters clean. Having your gutters cleaned on a regular basis is necessary for many reasons, the most important being that clogged gutters will eventually cause water damage to your home. We know how much rain we get here in Kanawha and Putnam Counties. In the springtime it almost feels like it rains for days without stopping. If your gutters are clogged, they will cause rainwater to overflow and damage your roof which means...leaking.
The easiest way to clean your gutters on a regular basis is to use a gutter scoops to remove all of that nasty gunk from the gutter. You will need a sturdy ladder placed on a level surface. After all of the debris is removed, you can use a garden hose to flush the gutters and downspouts. Doing this will also allow you to see if you have any existing leaks that need addressed.
That's all there is to it. And now that you know how easy it is, there's no reason to put it off any longer. Go clean those gutters!
