Clean Out Your Rain Gutters!

With the record rainfall last week in Michigan, many people were reminded to clean out your rain gutters!

The gutters on your home are designed to take the rain from your roof and disperse it away from your house. By doing this, you avoid having the water run back into your foundation and basement.

For the gutters and downspouts to function properly, they need to be free of any debris and blockages. If you didn’t get a chance to clean your gutters in the fall, they are probably full of leaves, twigs and other objects. At this point the water will not flow correctly through the gutters, and just runs off the roof onto the ground right next to your home…eventually working it’s way into your basement. (Also, many times people will have downspouts that end near their home. These should be extended as far away from the house as possible to move the water the greatest distance.)

Too much water in a close proximity of your home can lead to ruined landscaping, rotting wood in and on your home and flooded basements. The added moisture can also lead to problems with mold, termites, mosquitoes and cockroaches that love standing water.
