One of the worst things that can happen to our homes is an infestation of unwanted critters. From bugs to birds, they tend to believe that our homes are sometimes their homes. In your gutter system, a buildup of debris can often be made into a home by bugs. Here are a few ways to prevent this from happening.
Regularly Check Your Gutters
If you’re experiencing large amounts of unfavorable weather in your area, there’s a good chance debris has fallen onto your roof. Examining your gutters periodically can help reduce the amount of buildup, which can reduce the opportunity for unwanted guests.
Trim Away Nearby Branches and Shrubs
Bugs often make themselves at home in nearby trees and can use long branches to travel to safer havens like your gutters. Trim the branches on the trees around your home so they are at least a few feet away from your gutters and don’t give bugs as much of a chance to change their living location.
Install a Gutter Helmet
Duh! Our design for maximum coverage of your gutter protects them from leaves, sticks, and other forms of debris that can not only clog gutters but turn them into a breeding ground for bugs and other animals. They’re also paired with a lifetime warranty, so if anything goes wrong, you’re covered!
