Greet the Holiday Season with Clean Gutters
Check Your “Gutters” Off Your Holiday Cleaning List
Thinking of cleaning gutters doesn’t exactly make you hear the jingle bells ring. It is one of those chores that no one likes doing, so it gets put off way too many times until it can’t be postponed any longer.
During the holidays, your mind will be on too many things —like decorating, visiting friends and family, buying gifts, planning dinners— and indeed, gutter cleaning will not be one of them. So, why not get that over with before the holidays? You get to check that off your to-do list and avoid common winter gutter problems. It’s a win-win.
It is a good idea to clean your gutters and downspouts before you even start decorating the exterior of your home. Why? Well, the debris that accumulates in your gutters —dry leaves, dust, acorns, twigs— and your Christmas lights are not exactly what you would call “a good combo.” Those two things together could pose a significant risk to the safety of your home.
As if that weren’t bad enough, clogged gutters can lead to unwanted pests, such as rodents, mosquitoes and more, just by not allowing water to flow freely through its structure. As you prepare to receive special guests in your home this holiday season, the last thing you need is last minute damage happening to your property.
