Gutter Maintenance


Important Gutter Maintenance Tips for Homes in Silver Spring & Nearby Cities

Fall is the ideal time to inspect and maintain your gutters. Leaves fall from the trees when the weather cools, accumulating in your gutter. This just causes congestion, which is not only inconvenient but also potentially dangerous during severe rainstorms.

There are several things you can do throughout the year to keep your gutters in good working order, including keeping them clean and trimming back overgrown trees that could cause difficulties. We’ll go over each of these gutter maintenance methods in detail below.

The first thing to keep in mind before working on your gutter is that if it becomes clogged or unclean enough, water will begin to pool around your foundation instead of draining correctly. This is more of a problem in the winter when no leaves are falling and the gutters don’t get used regularly, but it can also happen during any season, particularly if your gutter is clogged with pine straw or other debris that isn’t normally present.

Maintaining your gutters on a regular basis is the greatest method to avoid this. Cleaning them out with a leaf blower or vacuum is the easiest way to accomplish it. If you don’t have one of them, a rake will suffice. Just keep an eye out for leaves that get trapped in the bends of your gutter and can’t be easily removed.
