Reduce Fire Risks with Gutter Helmet’s Comprehensive Protection System

By May 9, 2014October 17th, 2023No Comments

The National Interagency Fire Center predicts a high potential for fire accidents during the months of June to October. This unwanted occurrence should serve to alert property owners on the dangers they may be facing. To this end, the Corvallis Gazette Times posted tips aimed at reducing fire hazards.  As mentioned in the article:

Firefighters talk in terms of “defensible space,” but the idea is simple: You want to create an area around your home with a minimum of fuel sources.

And that idea includes some reasonably straightforward suggestions:

• Check your roof and rain gutters to make sure that leaves or needles — excellent fuel sources — aren’t accumulating there.

• Remove fuel sources close to the house… the perimeter of your house and attachments out to about five feet could be vulnerable if organic mulch, juniper bushes or other flammable plants are in that area.

This defensible space can come about in many forms for property owners. Those who want to truly ensure their protection from fire should go beyond merely ensuring that roofs and gutters are free from flammable materials such as dried leaves, twigs and similar sorts of debris. Installing Gutter Helmet’s rain gutter guards is a significant step toward that direction because it prevents buildup from happening in the first place. You are guaranteed with a product that is equipped with a patented technology:

Gutter Helmet’s secret is the principle of surface tension. Hold a glass under a running faucet and you can see surface tension at work. The water flows around the outside of the glass. Similarly, water clings to your Gutter Helmet® as it runs down the roof, flowing freely into your gutters.

In addition, the company employs a team of trained professionals who boast extensive product knowledge as well as industry experience. When you commission Gutter Helmet® to install your rain gutter system, you can expect excellent workmanship that will give you ultimate value for your investment.  More importantly, this innovative protection system will free up time and costs involved in regular maintenance. In this way, property owners are accorded convenience and relative safety from hazards like fire.
