Clogged gutters can keep rain and melting ice from moving down your home’s gutter system. The stationary water can freeze into ice dams in the chilly temps of winter, potentially causing exterior and interior water damage to your home. We advise you to give your gutters a thorough cleaning before the snow starts falling this year. To do this, put some gloves on and remove all sticks, leaves, and other debris that may have piled up in your gutters. Afterwards, carefully rinse out the downspouts with a hose. If your gutters are high up on the house and are difficult to reach, hire an experienced company to clean them out for you.
