Why you should clean your gutters regularly
Waiting until winter to do something about leaves clogging up the gutters can cause problems. Here’s why autumn is the perfect time to clean your gutters.
Whether you’re a homeowner, a renter or a landlord, there always seems to be a never-ending list of jobs and chores to do around the home. While there might be some tasks that you can put off, gutter cleaning is one of the most important home maintenance jobs to complete often, especially in autumn.
In the autumn months, many trees and shrubs shed their leaves in preparation for winter. This process means that many leaves, twigs and other debris can clutter your roof and block gutters. Effectively removing this build-up of leaves and debris before the wettest months of the year is crucial to protecting the structural integrity of your home, and can prevent costly roof and gutter repairs down the track.
