Spring is about to start and leaves have fallen so does your gutter look filled with leaves?   Leaves clog the gutter and does not allow water to move along the gutter.   Water trapped in guttters can cause major damage to your roof and walls.    Mold, mildew and nesting ground for mosquitoes are a few perils that come to mind.    During a rainstorm, gutters route water runoff from a very large surface - your roof - to where it can drain away from the house.   By doing so, they protect siding, windows, doors and foundations from water damage and help prevent flooding around your doors.   Maintaining clean gutters helps keep your home in good shape.  For an average size home, it costs about $100 to get your gutters cleaned.  If you use a gutter cleaning service be sure they show you proof of liablity insurance and workers compensation insurance before they work on your home.

Before your rainy season, check that downspouts aren't clogged.

To prevent clogged gutters, consider covering your gutters with wire or plastic mesh.  This can cut down on debris.

If you decide to clean these yourself, be sure to choose a sturdy ladder and place it firmly on a level base.  Do not hold onto the gutter itself as support these are not usually secure.

Just a $100 to have your gutters cleaned will save you more in the long term.
