Springtime is an ideal time to clean your home and check for any damage the winter weather may have caused. Of course, during your home maintenance routine, you do not only have to pay attention to the primary areas in your home, but to every nook and cranny as well.
It might not sound like such an important task, but keeping your gutters free of any dirt or debris should always be included in your roof cleaning routine. Clogged gutters can lead to problems in various areas of your home including stained siding, sagging ceilings, water penetration, and even basement flooding.
Getting rid of the dust and dirt in your home is satisfying and should always be part of your routine home care. Just like gutter cleaning or window washing, however, there is a right and a wrong way to do it. The fastest and most efficient method is to use a power washer but this requires special care.
