Fall Cleaning instead of Spring Cleaning
Fall is officially underway and that means leaves are falling and crisp weather. For some homeowners they luck out and their leaves blow away or be some else's problem, but for many they have to deal with the fall cleanup. While working on cleaning leaves out of the yard, you should not forget to pull the ladder out and clean the gutters to help drainage issues come spring.
When gutters fill with leaves they become impacted throughout the winter months due to snow and ice. Once the warmer weather comes around the homeowner can experience issues due to the gutters getting full. Rather than the water pushing away from the house, the water will flow over the edge and fall into the foundation. All of this can be prevented by cleaning out your gutters in the fall rather than waiting until the spring.
