Clean you Gutters to Prevent Water Damage and Mold Growth in Summit County
The fall weather is here in North East Ohio and that means it is time to clean your gutters! Did you know that SERVPRO of West Akron is called out to do water cleanup and/or mold mitigation in basements because of clogged gutters? The reason we have gutters on your home is to guide the heavy rain to the downspouts and away from your home. The importance of cleaning the gutters is to protect your roofs, siding and foundations to your home. If your gutters are clogged the water still needs to go somewhere, so it finds its way down the back of your siding causing the wood to rot and form mold. It can also flow over the sides of the gutter and pool around the foundation. Over time the water can crack the foundation and potentially resulting in water to your basement. Most foundation issues are not covered by insurance. Please be safe when cleaning out your gutters. If you do end up with water damage or mold to your home, please contact SERVPRO of West Akron at 330-867-5723.
