“Gutters have one basic purpose - to control the force of rainwater as it flows from your roof, in order to direct this water away from your home’s foundation. This simple but important job is dependent on a clear path for this water to flow, and having too much debris in your gutters can impede this flow. This is why gutters must be cleaned out regularly. Let’s explore some of the problems that can occur if your gutters are not regularly cleaned out and maintained, causing them to have clogs - some of these problems can be catastrophic!”

“Spring cleaning is about more than just dusting and clearing out old junk. Your windows can benefit from a good spring cleaning more than you might realize. You’ll find that the same spring debris that can wreak havoc on your gutter system can also lead to a layer of filth on your windows. The look of pollen and other tree debris is unsightly, and removing this is an easy way to make a big impact - sometimes the pollen around here is so bad that it can make windows difficult to even see through! You also might find that the typically large amount of spring rain has contributed to spots on your windows that are not too attractive.”
