SERVPRO Shares Fall Gutter Cleaning Tips

10/1/2021 (Permalink)

Cleaning your gutters and downspouts can make all the difference this fall in helping to protect your home. SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks shares some tips when tending to your gutters:

  • To avoid blockage in your gutters, it is recommended that you clean them out twice a year. 
  • We also recommend inspecting your gutters and roof after big storms. If left unattended, gutters and downspouts will most likely clog up with debris, causing rain water to build up and potentially lead to water intrusions. 
  • It is important to secure downspouts so that they point away from your home, allowing water to flow in the correct direction. 
  • Make sure they are extended at least 2 feet away from the foundation, especially if your home has a basement.

If your home is affected with water damage, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks at 252-331-7889.
