All good things come to an end quickly: sultry, bright summer gives way to rainy autumn. During the period of strong leaf fall, a large number of fallen leaves can cause clogged drain. If you have tall trees near your house, you have probably faced a similar problem.
Leaves in the gutter create a barrier to rainwater. It is not a pleasant task to constantly remove them from there. Therefore, the question arises, how to protect the drainage system from falling leaves? First of all, if you don’t want to clean the gutter yourself, you can always contact clogged drain cleaning company. Specialists are able to do the work fast, safe and reliably.
Many people rely on heavy rainfall and gusts of wind because they believe these weather surprises will help rid them of leaves and branches in the drain. However, they are not right. The problem is actually very serious. The accumulation of debris blocks storm drains, and rainwater gradually erodes the foundation, penetrating into the house through the ceilings and walls. As a result, unaesthetic wet spots are formed, dampness appears, and the decoration of the facade and rooms requires repair. Moreover, humidity and a pile of natural debris are a favorable environment for the appearance of moss, cobwebs, mold, breeding of ants, cockroaches, hornets and other insects.
Experts advise cleaning the gutters twice a year. The first time of removing fallen leaves and dry twigs should be in late autumn to prepare the system for cold weather and second time – in early spring, at the same time to check the operability of the gutters and the integrity of the fasteners after a frosty winter. But if the crown of a deciduous tree rises above the roof of the house, the procedure will have to be carried out at least 3-4 times a year.
