Winter Gutter Maintenance Tips From Our Cypress Roofing CompanyDespite the dead of winter not being an ideal time for gutter cleaning, a lack of attention can cause gutter clogs. Read our maintenance tips below to avoid clogged gutters this winter. When you need gutter repairs or maintenance in Cypress or the surrounding Houston areas, give Southern Roofing Texas a call.

Remove Leaves

It is necessary to clean up fallen leaves. Decomposing leaves can wind up in gutters and clog them. To make matters worse, rotting leaves and twigs attract a wide variety of pests. Clear as much debris from your roof as you can safely reach, as it will eventually find its way into your gutters. While it's rare for the temperature to drop below freezing in Cypress, we recommend cleaning your gutters and downspouts on a warm, dry day.

Check Your Gutters

Check your gutters first if you plan to clean them yourself. Look for cracks, holes, and leaks. Also, make sure the seams are in good shape and not damaged. There should be no obstruction in your downspouts. If you find water pooling around your gutters, call a professional. For homes surrounded by trees, gutter guards can prevent leaves and other debris from clogging gutters.

How To Clean Safely

While performing gutter maintenance in the winter, we recommend wearing slip-proof or rubber-soled shoes, especially if it has recently rained. It can be dangerous to clean gutters with bare hands due to the elements and the gutter's sharp edges. Use thick gloves made of suede and a gutter scoop to ensure your safety.
