When rain pours, gutter systems catch the water that hits your roof and drives it away from the foundation of your home. These metal channels are one of the key components that help keep your living space dry, cozy and damage-free. However, when dirt builds up in this area, water won’t flow where it should, which can result in costly repairs.

Gutters Clean

Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. shares some gutter cleaning tips to help safeguard your home in today’s post.

1.  Inspect Your Gutters Regularly

What causes your gutters to deteriorate and eventually fail? While leaves and twigs might look harmless at first glance, when they pile up in your gutters, they can clog the system and cause irreversible damage. By inspecting the area at least twice a year or after big storms, you’ll know if it’s time to schedule a maintenance session with your local gutter contractor.

2. Work With a Gutter Contractor

Do not work with “contractors” who do not carry the right license or insurance; entrust your gutter endeavors to the pros. You should not also take on any gutter activities by yourself to avoid putting your safety at risk. Plus, gutter experts know well how gutter systems work; they have enough experience to finish the job.

3. Mind the Trees Around Your Home

Trim overhanging branches from nearby trees around your home to protect your gutters from falling leaves and tree limbs. This helps minimize the amount of debris that clogs your gutter system.

4. Install a Gutter Protection System

You can skip gutter cleaning by investing in an advanced gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet®. This gutter guard product has an innovative design that keeps any form of debris out of your gutters. It also comes with a Triple Lifetime Warranty to protect your investment.
