Gutter Cleaning ... something to do before crisis strikes

  One thing I never worried about was my house roofing, it never had a problem for the past 3 years(ever since I bought my house). There will be always a point where life throws random things at you. This blog is about one of those things.

   It was a beautiful thrusday afternoon, I wrapped up work little early and was playing with my son in the backyard. It was expected to rain that day, also the gloomy weather was keeping us from going too far from home. A sudden shower taken us by surprise so we have to prepare some hot beverage to watch the beauty of rain pouring down. It was a light shower then expected but perfect to enjoy.

Couple of hours later we noticed a leak from the roof. And we see water dripping down slowly from the roof and getting to the wood on the siding of the house. We thought it was a after rain effect and we went to bed without worrying much. Next morning when we work up I was taken by surprise that the leak got worse and it making the siding messier.

We called a handyman to look into the problem, it looked into it and said our gutters are clogged, I was taken by surprise, I don't know anything about gutters till date, I never bothered to learn how the rain water is safely moved to the ground. Where are the gutter and what are downspouts. What could make them clog and what as a home owner are suppose to do in these situation and how to avoid these crisis situations.

I educate myself and call the first guy google listed me in my search. I made an appointment for the same day and the service was exceptional. They are GreenWorld gutter cleaning service in Pleasanton CA. they can be found here
