Summer is the time of the year when everyone is more active outdoors and for the owners of family homes, that active period usually entails more work done around the house as well – vegetation grows faster in summer, so the garden and the yard need the owner’s constant attention; the wind carries more dust and debris that gets deposited on the roof and in the gutters and the wildlife around the property is also more active, building nests and dropping nuts on the roof and in the gutters. This also means that homeowners need to pay more attention to their gutters in summer – here are a few tips for you about how to keep your pipes clean all summer long:
- Climb on a ladder and scoop out the accumulated debris every months – you will find dust, twigs, feathers, leaves and many other things carried by the wind, all of which can clog the gutters. Whenever you clean the gutter pipes, check the downspouts, too – they need to be clog-free to allow the gutters to do their job properly;
- Install gutter guards – gutter guards are brush-like objects or pieces of sponge-like material that go on top of or into the gutter pipes and they play the role of preventing debris from getting into the gutter pipes. The guards need to be cleaned regularly as well, but they are much easier to maintain than the pipes. Hire Dallas Texas roofers to do the job for you, and professionally.
