When is the best time to clean my gutters?

Gutters really need to be cleaned whenever they are full to the point of slowing the water flowing out of the downspouts. The gutters job is to catch water and move it away from the house. If water can’t flow through the gutters and out the downspouts the water will remain too close to the house leading to all kinds of problems. The leaves are falling now so keep an eye on your gutters and make sure they are flowing freely. If you see water running over them it’s time to clean them.
