Your home’s gutters are a critical part of your water drainage system. When they don’t work properly, your property may be at risk from standing or rushing water. When you go about your home maintenance in March, be sure to set aside time to clean out your gutters. Getting rid of sticks and leaves is a simple way to ensure water drains away from your home as it should. To prevent your gutters from collecting so much debris in the future, you may even wish to invest in covers or screens that prevent materials from becoming lodged in these drains.
Cleaning your gutters requires just a few simple tools: a ladder, gloves and possibly a trowel. If you would prefer to have help with this process, consider hiring a contractor. Either way, you can stop water drainage problems in their tracks.
