Maintenance Tip: Eaves-trough Cleaning twice a year
As you may know, eaves-troughs are installed to control the flow of water and divert water to a safe location. But keep in mind that eaves-troughs become very easily clogged and require preventative maintenance 2 times per year:
- Falling debris such as leaves in the Fall
- Flowers and seed pods in the Spring and Summer
- Snow in the Winter
- Tree branches, bird and animal debris all year-round
Eaves-troughs are part of a home that many owners pay little attention to…until it’s too late! Avoid costly water damage due to eaves-trough maintenance neglect.
Did you know that the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care encourages regular cleaning of your eavestrough as a means of protection against West Nile Virus?
60% or more of mosquitoes in your neighbourhood come from clogged eaves-troughs, or badly sloped eaves-troughs.
