Gutters do their job best when clean. Check yours for foliage build-up, particularly if trees hover over the roof. The rainy season is a prime time to ensure all drainage areas remain unblocked by leaves and/or debris. Trapped moisture can leave a house susceptible to mold and mildew and cause major damage to your roof and walls. While you’re at it, make sure the downspout is clean and pointing at least two feet away from foundation walls.
