Recent Rains, Cause of Your Pain?

Clogged Gutters Can Damage to the Exterior and Interior of Your Home

The weather in Iowa can take a toll on your home and can be a cause of property damage. The recent rains have left many homeowners looking up at their roofs and gutters. After a rain, it is always important to inspect your gutters and check your downspouts for any debris blocking the flow of water and make sure they are pointing away from the foundation of your home. Typical gutters capture rainwater, yet also collect leaves, twigs, and other organic debris that can become clogged. Clogged gutters can damage both the exterior and interior of your Des Moines home, costing you thousands of dollars.

When your gutters clog, the rainwater needs to go somewhere, the water will spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below. This can result in damage to landscaping, lead to surface erosion, and can even seep into your foundation causing cracks and basement flooding. In some cases, mold can begin to grow which is a serious health hazard.
