Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Winter-Proof Your Rain Gutters!

8/30/2020 (Permalink)

Throughout this fun-filled summer, the last thing on your mind are the winter storms just on the horizon. As we head into fall, we should set aside time to clean our gutters and prepare our home for the upcoming rainy season. Unkept gutters can cause water damage to the roof, walls, and foundation. In addition, it creates the perfect atmosphere for mold to flourish and pests to build homes. 

To clean your gutters, you’ll want to carefully set up a tall ladder on level ground. Then, you can use an old rag or small shovel to scoop the debris from the rain gutter. After all visible debris is removed, run a hose down the rain gutter to flush away any excess dirt and debris. This step will also show if you have leaks in your rain gutter.

While we can prepare our home to the best of our abilities, unfortunately, accidents and disasters are inevitable. Luckily, SERVPRO of Santee / Lakeside is available 24/7 to assess and repair your emergency storm or water damage. Call us at (619) 258-7200 for any storm, water, fire, cleaning & restoration needs!
