Is It Spring Yet?
Have you looked at your gutters lately?
It has been a long, cold winter in Madison, WI. Polar Vortexes, snowstorms, even thunder snow? We’re definitely ready to see warmer days and a little less of the white stuff by now.
The downside? When all of that ice and snow melts, we are left with the dirty puddles and slush for a while, and that can lead to flooding problems in your home. Check out your gutters. With the weather we’ve been having, your gutters might be frozen shut. You want to make sure you clear ice out of the gutters, spouts, and the surrounding areas to make sure that once the snow and ice melts, it can flow away from your home.
It is important to do everything you can to limit the water sitting up against your home. Not only will it lower the chances you see flooding in your home, but also it will help protect the foundation of your home. Once the foundation of your home sees enough water damage, it starts to show visible damage, leading to costly repairs.
If you have any concerns about your gutters and their functionality, professionals are always willing to help out. You can check out companies that do gutter cleaning in Madison, WI.
At Clear Vision Cleaning, we suggest next time you’re outside, make sure that water can still flow through your gutters. After all, spring is (hopefully) just around the corner!
