Have your eavestroughs unclogged to prevent water infiltration
Eavestroughs are an element of the house that we tend to forget. In fact, they are attached to the roof and seem to do their job without embarrassment, until you discover that there is a problem. Problems that may arise include blockages and water infiltration that may result. To avoid this, pay special attention to the maintenance of your gutters. These need to be uncorked…
Why unclog the gutters?
Clogged gutters, is it serious? After all, they only drain water from the roof! The truth is that a filibuster can quickly turn into a nightmare if you don’t take corrective action.
In fact, your gutters will continuously retain an amount of water that is not evacuated. This will cause them to wear out prematurely.
Also, this accumulated water will look for an exit to evacuate. It may then gradually seep through the walls. As a result, your home will be subject to constant humidity, which will create mold.
What can be done to prevent gutter problems?
The right thing to do is to regularly inspect the condition of your pipes, especially in the fall. Dead leaves from trees blown down by the wind can pile up. They will then form a barrier that will block the ducts.
It is also not uncommon for lifeless animal bodies (birds or rodents) to clog the pipes, which can be a problem, especially if you have a rainwater harvesting system. Indeed, the recovered water may be infected and become unfit for consumption.
