Your gutters need to be regularly cleaned so they can protect your home from water damage. Unfortunately, gutter cleaning can be a tedious chore, which is why many homeowners tend to neglect it. How can you simplify this maintenance task? In today’s blog post, Handyman Connection® of Orange County, the top home maintenance company in our area, explains how to simplify gutter cleaning.
Trim Tree Limbs
The biggest source of gutter clogs consists of leaves, twigs and branches from nearby trees. Keep tree limbs away from your home. Trimming back tree limbs can also reduce the risk of roof damage during a storm.
Hire a Pro
You can also simply hire a professional company to clean your gutters for you. A professional will be able to do the job thoroughly and efficiently. They can also implement preventative measures such as installing a gutter guard. Most importantly, by hiring a professional, you don’t have to risk your safety by climbing up onto your roof to do the job yourself.
Install Filters at the Top of Your Downspouts
Your downspouts are an important part of your home’s water management system, so you should clean them at the same time as your gutters. Installing a filter at the points where the gutters meet the downspouts can make downspout cleaning a breeze. The filters will keep leaves and other debris from entering your downspouts, cutting down the scope of this maintenance task.
