Preventive Home Maintenance - Cleaning Rain Gutter

Autumn Leaves - Beauty and the Beast

Now that the autumn leaves have for the most part fallen off the trees and no longer to be admired, its time for some homeowners to get down to a challenging home maintenance chore. For those that live in older neighborhoods with mature trees, the leaves from these trees can be quite a nuisance when they fill up the rain gutters. Clogged gutters impede the proper flow of water, causing rainwater to overflow. This overflowing water has the potential to damage your gutters and your roof and possibly require expensive repairs. Cleaning your rain gutters can also be a challenging task, especially if you don't feel comfortable of heights or being on a ladder. Its best to hire professionals if this applies to you.
