For many homeowners, cleaning the gutters is no welcome task. It’s also an easy one to put off, since any gathered debris in those gutters are out-of-sight and thus easily put out-of-mind. Wait too long, however, and you risk clogging which can cause damage to the roof, pooling water around your foundation, and even basement flooding.
Check out these tips on how to clean your gutters safely and effectively.
