Here is something that we see all the time – clogged gutters!
Fall is approaching and it’s time to start thinking about cleaning your gutters. Soggy leaves can lead to water overflowing from the gutters and draining toward your foundation. This causes dampness and water entry into your basement or crawlspace. The gutters can also back up, which can force water to drain towards your home and cause damage and mold.
Many companies clean gutters – including gutter cleaning companies, landscapers and pest control companies. Be sure that whomever you choose, they clean and flush your gutters and leaders and/or underground drain lines. Having your gutters well maintained and clean can give you peace of mind going into the winter months.
