How to Clean Your Gutters (And How it Helps Your Foundation)

Fall has blasted, full force into Philadelphia and South Jersey.

The air is chilly, the nights are cold and the leaves are falling like a yellow, orange, and red snow storm.

This means clogged up gutters. 

Cleaning the gutters might be the everyone’s least favorite home improvement project, but, it’s one that is absolutely necessary.

Actually, failure to do so can cost you thousands of dollars…


How To Clean Your Gutters Properly

This video from Home Advisor shows you how to get those gutters cleaned up easily and without too much hassle. But, before we get to that, let’s see why cleaning them is so important:


  • Clogged gutters allow water to build up during rain and snow storms. (This can cause leaks in the roof).
  • Clogging means that water will build up and spill over, near the foundation of the home. (This leads to an excess of water around your home’s foundation).
  • Dirty gutters + short down spouts = cracks in the foundation. (There’s simply too much water and pressure for the foundation to withstand, causing cracks which lead to flooding, mold and foundation problems).

We can help you clean the gutters and extend down spouts so that your foundation stays strong and crack-free. And, we can help you assess any damage that has already happened and how to fix it.
