Spruce Up Your Space: Gut Your Gutters



What’s in your gutters?


Okay, you’re right, maybe not a cat.


With summer on the horizon, it’s time to spruce up your space and that’s what Radon Crew is here for. Our spring cleaning tip #1 is to clean out your gutters.


It’s important to keep ’em clear. You can do this either manually or hire a service. Build up can result in water overflow and lead to foundation damage. Remove it all: leaves, twigs, and whatever else you might find. Flush out any remaining debris with a hose and wah-lah, clean gutters!


On to the next task. While you’re focusing on the gutters, you might as well kill two birds with one stone—how about the roof? Ensuring that the shingles are secure can prevent further damage to your home. Got a dirty roof? Get your hands on a garden sprayer, some hot water, bleach, and detergent. Mix the ingredients and spray away. Safety first, of course, so permitting your agility, it might be best to hire a guy for the job. Our piece of advice—don’t forget the roof! Although it’s not something you come into direct contact with on a daily basis, keeping it clean will improve its longevity and ensure your home is safe and healthy.


That’s all for now. At Radon Crew, we are committed to keeping your home at its best and safest.
