One of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of home maintenance is keeping your gutters clean and in proper working order. Clogged gutters can lead to a host of problems, including roof leaks, water damage, and even structural damage.
Here are a few tips on how to clean and maintain your gutters in Connecticut:
1. Inspect your gutters regularly
It’s a good idea to check your gutters at least once a season, and more often if you have a lot of trees nearby.
2. Clean your gutters at least twice a year
Spring and fall are the ideal times to clean your gutters, but you can do it any time the leaves are falling.
3. Use a ladder to clean your gutters
Be sure to use a ladder that is the right height for the job, and always use caution when working with a ladder while you clean your gutters.
4. Use a gutter scoop to remove leaves and debris
A gutter scoop is a handy tool that can help you remove leaves and debris from your gutters quickly and easily.
5. Don’t overload your gutters
It’s important not to overload your gutters with too much debris, as this can cause them to clog.
6. Repair any damage to your gutters
If you notice any damage to your gutters, be sure to repair it as soon as possible.
