Clean Your Gutters

Real Estate Agent with Buyer's Edge Company Inc

Cleaning your gutters is like cleaning your teeth. It's not much fun but totally worth it.


Many people choose gutter guardsThere are the gutter guards that are foam inserts that soak up water and keep leaves from getting stuck and clogging the downspouts. Another popular gutter guard acts like a grate allowing water to flow through and blocking leaves and debris.

Whatever you choose, gutter guards or the old-fashioned manual method, it's a good idea to clear gutters prior to fall and winter. If you are planning to clean your gutters manually using a broom, a leaf blower or your hands, be safe. We asked our children to clean the gutters last year and the picture here shows their reaction to my "safety talk".  Madeleine and Clifford Henderson


If you are buying a home in the Greater Washington D.C. area which includes Northern Virginia, Maryland and the District, you will need to check your gutters twice a year. There are deciduous trees in the Washington/Baltimore area so cleaning and checking gutter conditions is a must in the Fall and Spring is an excellent idea.


Here's a short video featuring Stephen Mercer & Marshall Henderson, Exclusive Buyers Agents with Buyer's Edge. Stephen and Marshall understand the importance of keeping your gutters clear and clean. When a home for sale has water issues, things like wet basements and/or mold, it's often caused by clogged gutters.  If you are buying a home, walk around the homes exterior. Look for water pooling close to the foundation. Make sure the land is graded so water drains and moves away from the home. Finally, look to see where the gutters drain. The idea is to keep all water moving away from the home.
