Gutter Maintenance


Important Gutter Maintenance Tips for Homes in the Boise Area

Gutter maintenance is best done in the fall. When the weather cools, leaves fall from the trees and collect in your gutter. This only adds to the traffic congestion, which is not only inconvenient but also dangerous during heavy rainstorms.

You can keep your gutters in good operating condition all year by keeping them clean and pruning back overgrown trees that could cause problems. Below, we’ll go through each of these gutter cleaning techniques in further depth.

The first thing to remember before working on your gutter is that if it becomes clogged or dirty enough, water will pool around your foundation rather than drain properly. This is more of a problem in the winter when fewer leaves fall and gutters aren’t used as much, but it can happen at any time of year, especially if your gutter is clogged with pine straw or other foreign material.

Keeping your gutters clean on a regular basis is the best way to avoid this. Using a leaf blower or a vacuum is the best way to get rid of them. If you don’t have one, a rake will suffice. Simply keep an eye out for leaves that get stuck in your gutter’s bends and are difficult to remove.
