How to Prepare Your Gutters for Fall

August 28th, 2020 | No Comments »

As much as we may not want to admit it, summer is almost over. As such, it’s time to prepare ourselves for fall. Fall can be a beautiful time of the year, but it can also wreak havoc on our gutters.

Here are a few ways you can prepare your gutters for fall this year:

Give them a good cleaningHow to Prepare Your Gutters for Fall

Before the leaves start to fall, give your gutters a good, thorough cleaning. Get up on the ladder and remove any debris that has collected over the summer months, and then hose them down with a high-pressure spray. For a better clean, pour some mild, soapy water down your gutters to wash away more stubborn dirt and grime.

Check for leaks and damages

While you’re up on your ladder, cleaning your gutters, take this as an opportunity to check for any leaks or other forms of damage. The colder months can make cracks, holes, and leaks even worse, so it’s a good idea to find and fix these problem areas before the temperature begins to drop.

Trim nearby trees and branches

Autumn is notorious for falling leaves. As beautiful as these leaves may be, they are not as beautiful when they’re clogging up your gutter. You can’t stop the leaves from falling, but you can control where they fall by trimming any nearby trees and branches in the late summer months.

With these few steps, your house and your gutters should be well-prepared for the autumn months. However, cleaning and maintaining your gutters can be hard work on your own. For a helping hand, contact Bell Seamless Gutters today to learn more about our gutter repair services.
