Clearing Your Gutters Throughout the Seasons
In Wisconsin, it’s important to clean your gutters year-round. Our weather can be unpredictable, and each season comes with its own threats: snow melt with leftover debris in the spring, summer rain, leaves in the fall, and even ice dams that develop in the winter. To avoid the pitfalls of each season, plan to clean your gutters every three to four months – think of it as seasonal cleanup. If you don’t have the opportunity to clean them this regularly, shoot for an early spring clean-up to manage the oncoming rain and early fall clean-up to manage the leaves. Pro-tip: avoid cleaning your gutters directly after rainfall when the leaves and debris are still soggy. It will make the job much more difficult and much messier!
