Storm Damage Prevention Tips for Brighton?
Rain Gutter Cleaning Tip from Bob Villa
Have you ever seen a house with saplings growing out of the rain gutter? Dirt and debris, when left in a rain gutter system, creates the perfect environment for seeds to germinate and grow. SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton responds to storm damage emergencies in Brighton throughout the year. Rain gutters are designed to carry rain away from your home, and when they are cleared of debris, they are very efficient. But when they are clogged, they can cause water damage to your home by directing the water into, instead of away, from your roofline and foundation. Here is a tip from the home expert, Bob Villa on cleaning your rain gutters using a wet/dry vacuum:
If you have heavy debris in your rain gutters you can use a wet/dry vacuum. You can purchase special attachments at a local home improvement store. Long hoses and curved attachments will allow you to use your wet/dry vacuum while standing on the ground. You may have to moisten stubborn material so the vacuum can extract it. After vacuuming the gutters use the garden hose to flush the gutters and downspout.
