Fall Cleaning Is Just as Important as Spring Cleaning

September 28th, 2015 | 1 Comment »

107_inspection20Last week marked the official start of fall and, unfortunately (for some), the official end of summer. Now we know that many of you aren’t looking forward to the change in weather, to the dark days ahead, but we assure you that fall is one of the best seasons. But you probably don’t need any convincing. We mean, who hates the fall? Not many.

 

Whether you enjoy the smell of pumpkin pie or enjoy the taste of apple cider, there really is something for everyone in the fall. We have to simply say one word and people, young and old alike, get all into a tizzy: Halloween. That being said, you shouldn’t dress up your home in a costume; you have to face the reality of it and that means making sure it is in top working order. You shouldn’t things around the house, such as your gutters. Fall cleaning is just as important as spring cleaning, according to this article in the Pocono Record.

 

Amy Leap writes, “Although it is a job most homeowners wish they could ignore, cleaning out the gutters is crucial to your [sic] the health of your house. If the gutters are not cleaned out properly, drain outlets will dam up and rainwater will fill the gutters and then spill over and puddle on the ground around your foundation. If it does, it can seep into your basement or crawlspace.”

 

If you’re a homeowner, it would be wise to consider the seasonal effects on your house. This might include everything from extra rain or even frost in some parts of the country. Fall isn’t as bad as winter of course, but it’s best to prepare in advance for what is sure to be a strange season of weather. Contact Bell Seamless Gutters with any questions you might have.
