Get Those Gutters Cleaned Out
Believe it or not, spring is upon us as next month marks the first official day of spring. It’s coming; the question is, are you -- and your home -- ready for it?
Like every winter, we’ve seen our share of storms and the spring season can also deliver storm damage in the form of torrential rain, high winds, and even hail.
At SERVPRO, we believe in preparedness, which is why we thought it made sense to suggest you take the time to check the condition of your gutters before the seasons make the switch.
When it comes to checking how well your gutters function, it’s best to wait for the rain. While we don’t advise going out during a terribly gusty rain storm, we do suggest pulling on a pair of rain boots and grabbing an umbrella for a quick, but thorough check of your gutters.
What you're looking for is steady rainwater drainage to ensure that nothing has gotten trapped or clogged during the winter months. What sorts of things might clog up your gutters? Oh, anything from leaves, weeds, and even bird’s nests!
Clogged gutters can cause water damage to your home’s structure, which could really put a damper on the start of spring.
Rest assured, whether because of clogged gutters or another reason entirely, your local SERVPRO servicepro team is always standing by to help clean up any storm damage on your property.
When it comes to professional and reliable storm damage remediation, SERVPRO of Haverhill / Newburyport is simply a call away.
