It may not seem too important to keep your gutters cleaned during summer – but these summer showers we’ve been experiencing may make you feel like you should get those piles of pine needles or those plants that are growing out of your gutter removed. You are thinking correctly.
Getting and keeping your gutters as clean as possible makes the job easier each time it’s done – and it helps prevent clogs in your downspout during surprise summer storms.
Also, if you happen to have a rain barrel connected to your gutter system, it can prevent any filter system from getting clogged and will help you utilize your space better – as any debris that is in there is area that water can’t fill.
Overall, the best idea is to keep your roof area and gutters as clean as possible.
