WHAT IS A CLEAN UP AND WHY SHOULD I DO IT?

WHENEVER YOU LOOK ONLINE FOR ADVICE, YOU WILL FIND WHATEVER ANSWER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.  RAKE YOUR LEAVES, DON'T RAKE YOUR LEAVES. DEADHEAD YOUR SEASONAL PLANTS, OR ALLOW THEM TO DECAY ON THEIR OWN.  THE BOTTOM LINE IS... DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! 

A CLEAN-UP KEEPS YOUR LAWN AND LANDSCAPING LOOKING NEAT AND CLEAN.  REMOVING LEAVES FROM YOUR LAWN KEEPS THE LEAF BUILD UP OFF OF YOUR LAWN OVER THE SEASON. YOU WILL KEEP A HEALTHIER LAWN THROUGHOUT THE WARM MONTHS.  LEAF BUILD-UP CAN ALSO ATTRACT MICE, VOLES (NOT MOLES), SNAKES, AND OTHER NUISANCES AROUND YOUR HOME AND LAWN.  SOME LEAVES WILL DECOMPOSE; HOWEVER, THE MAJORITY  OF THEM WILL NOT, LEAVING YOU WITH A MESS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
CLOGGED GUTTERS CAUSE WATER TO OVERFLOW AND COLLECT AROUND THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR HOME. DURING WINTER MONTHS, THE MOISTURE CAN FREEZE, CAUSING SIDEWALKS AND YOUR HOME'S FOUNDATION TO CRACK.


WHY CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS?

WATER THAT BACKS UP IN THE GUTTER CAN ALSO CAUSE MOISTURE DAMAGE TO THE WOOD IN THE FASCIA AROUND YOUR HOME.  IT ALSO CREATES UNDETECTED ROOF LEAKS THAT CAN RESULT IN INTERIOR DAMAGE TO WALLS AND CEILINGS.  DURING WINTER MONTHS, CLOGGED GUTTERS CAN STOP MELTING SNOW ON YOUR ROOF TO BACK UP AND CREATE ROOF LEAKS.

THE SAME ILL EFFECTS OF IMPROPER GUTTER DRAINAGE CAN AFFECT PROPERTY AROUND YOUR HOME. FOR EXAMPLE, WATER THAT COLLECTS ON CONCRETE SIDEWALKS AND DRIVEWAYS CAN FREEZE AND, SIMILAR TO YOUR FOUNDATION, WILL RESULT IN CRACKS AND SAGGING CONCRETE.

THE WATER THAT POOLS ON THIS CONCRETE ALSO CAUSES RAPID MOLD AND MILDEW GROWTH DURING WARMER MONTHS AND ICE DURING COLDER MONTHS. BOTH OF THESE EVENTS RESULT IN A SLIPPERY HAZARD FOR THE HOMEOWNER AND THEIR FAMILY. THE SAME RUNOFF CAN WASH AWAY LANDSCAPING, CAUSE SOIL EROSION AND KILL GRASS AND TREES DUE TO OVERWATERING. 

CLEANING YOUR GUTTERS INSIDE AND OUT ON A REGULAR BASIS CAN KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE, SAVE YOU THOUSANDS IN REPAIR BILLS AND KEEP YOUR HOME LOOKING GREAT.
