As a homeowner, maintaining your gutters is essential to protect your property from water damage. Fiberglass gutters are a durable and long-lasting option, but they still require regular upkeep to function properly. In this article, we'll share some tips from AAA Gutters on how to keep your fiberglass gutters clean and clog-free.
Inspect Your Gutters Regularly
The first step to maintaining your fiberglass gutters is to inspect them regularly. Check for any signs of damage, such as cracks, leaks, or sagging. Look for debris buildup, including leaves, twigs, and dirt. The best time to inspect your gutters is after a storm, when debris is likely to have accumulated.
Clean Your Gutters Twice a Year
Even if your gutters don't seem clogged, it's still essential to clean them twice a year to prevent any blockages from forming. You can either do this yourself or hire a professional gutter cleaning service. If you choose to clean them yourself, be sure to wear gloves and use a ladder that's stable and secure. Use a trowel or scoop to remove debris and then flush the gutters with a hose.
Trim Overhanging Branches
If there are trees near your home, overhanging branches can drop leaves and other debris onto your gutters. This debris can cause blockages and prevent water from flowing freely. To prevent this, trim any overhanging branches regularly.
Address Any Issues Promptly
Maintaining your fiberglass gutters is crucial to protecting your home from water damage. Regular inspections and cleaning, along with preventative measures like trimming overhanging branches and installing gutter guards, can keep your gutters functioning properly for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns about maintaining your gutters, don't hesitate to contact AAA Gutters for expert advice and service.
