The Holidays can be stressful enough when you have so many things on your to-do list! And the winter months are the worst time for home maintenance because it’s always so cold and wet. This is usually the time when your gutter-system needs the most care, after all the last thing you would want when your guests come over is an overflowing gutter. If you were to clean your gutters during the winter months it would certainly be the most dangerous time of the year, so here are some holiday home safety tips!
When talking about how to keep your home safe for the holidays, it’s important to talk about the dangers of water accumulation around the home. Gutter safety is key when you want to prevent water damage in your home. Gutters that are not clean can cause issues to the roof by allowing an additional amount of moisture around the perimeter of the roof. This happens when the gutters are clogged and it’s for two reasons, first the clogged gutter holds water near the roof and second is when a gutter is clogged water can flow backwards towards the roof instead of over the top of the gutter. The latter scenario is uncommon but is possible.
Another holiday home safety tip is to prevent harm to you! Cleaning gutters is a dangerous chore, resulting in hundreds of thousands of preventable accident cases at the home per year. And during the holiday seasons, when everything is wet, this chore is ever more cautious.
