Here’s to Clog-Free Gutters: Short-Term & Long-Term Tips

By September 10, 2014October 18th, 2023No Comments

As early as the start of fall, it is but wise to prepare your home for the effects that winter will definitely bring. Outdoor chores will be rather difficult to deal with as days turn cold and wet. Of course, we are all aware that last winter was exceptionally cold; in fact the coldest we had in Milwaukee in about 30 years.

One of the things that you should give special attention to is your gutter system. During the fall is when your gutter system has the highest chance of clogging, which can contribute to the formation of damaging ice dams during winter. We highly recommend getting the best gutter protection systems in Milwaukee Wisconsin. But before that, here are some helpful tips on how to keep your gutters clog-free:

Clear Your Surroundings

The main causes of clogging are debris and leaves that fall from trees. It’s not something we can stop but if you do have branches overhanging your home, you can cut them down. Cutting the branches that overhang your home will help protect it from damage and allow you to get those leaves to the ground before they end up in your gutters.

Constant Cleaning and Inspection

Conduct regular cleaning and inspections to make sure that your gutters are free from any obstructing debris and dirt. Remove them using a garden hose. And don’t forget to douse the downspouts, too.

Install Gutter Protection

One of the most effective ways to keep your gutters free from clogging is to install a good gutter protection system. This will prevent leaves or debris from settling on your gutters and disrupting water flow.
