Summer is officially over- tis’ the season of fall! Fall is a beautiful season that encapsulates breathtaking views and serene landscapes. The fresh smell of wood surrounding the air alongside the picture-perfect burnt orange hues everywhere; it’s just too good to be true. Another staple of the fall season is annual house maintenance. You might be focusing on trying to keep your home as good as new from the inside, but did you know the outside could be even more important?
Regardless of the state your house in, it may not be weather resistant. Harsh weather conditions could do more damage than you would expect, which is why you should always make gutter maintenance a priority. Here is how you should be maintaining your gutters during fall!
First things first, use your water hose and give them a good spray down using the high-pressure setting. Get rid of all of nature’s debris that has been building up the entire year-round. After you’re done, get your gloves on and scrub or wipe out any remaining bits of dirt and debris. Top it off with a bucket full of warm, soapy water down your gutter, and wipe them thoroughly with a washcloth or sponge. Spend a weekend’s worth of time if you have to, but we bet it will save you on a lot of time and money later on.
Look Out for Any Gutter Damage
After your drain looks all squeaky clean, look out to see if you can spot any damages to your gutters. They may have gone through some rough times since the last storm that hit or since you last cleaned it. Inspect for any uneven sections, unfilled crevices, and holes in your gutters, sagging gutters, loose downspouts, etc. Taking care of damage now could prevent you from paying higher maintenance costs in the future while preparing you for the weather next in line.
Repair If Necessary
Repair everything you need to after inspecting your gutters. Leaving them pending may lead to dirt and debris seeping through your gutters and into your house structure. Fill up all the cracks if there are any and ensure your house is fall-ready. If you’re not sure how to properly repair, make sure you reach out to a qualified professional.
