How to Clean Gutters Safely During the Colder Months

Jun 29, 2022 | Home Maintenance

Everyone knows the importance of gutter cleaning during the warmer months, to prevent spot fires from debris build up. However, the need to maintain clear gutters during the Winter months can sometimes go unnoticed, despite its importance in maintaining your home and preserving the foundations.

Gutter cleaning during Winter and those more typically colder months is extremely important in maintaining your home and preserving the foundations. It’s vital to ensure proper maintenance before and during cold weather. If gutters aren’t cleaned prior to rain, (and as a result are clogged with leaves, twigs, and other debris) when a storm hits, rainwater will overflow and expose your property to water damage.

Cleaning gutters whilst there is heavy rain or wind can be difficult and not to mention extremely dangerous. For safety, efficiency and ease of cleaning, some recommend waiting for two to three days after rain has hit to allow the debris to dry in order to clean. However, sometimes this isn’t always a viable option, especially during winter when it can be drizzling for days on end. This means debris doesn’t dry, and roofs remain wet, increasing the risk of slips and falls. That’s why we recommend reaching out to the professionals who have the right tools and equipment to clean safely and effectively.
