Gutter Cleanup and Repairs for Your Charles County Rental Property

Charles County Rental Property with Clean Gutters and DownspoutsOne important component of having a profitable rental property is routine cleaning and repair of the house’s gutters. Gutters function by channeling water from large roof surfaces away from the home itself, preventing the flooding of the foundation, window wells, and other vulnerable parts.

Neglected gutters can ultimately lead to costly repairs. Dry leaves and other debris collecting in a gutter prevent the downspouts from properly draining. Clogged gutters are going to freeze, overflow, and slowly pull the gutters loose. Water pooling in the gutters can rot wood and rust metal as well. Gutters failing can cause water to flood the basement, damage the foundation, and so on.

Numerous owners of Charles County rental properties believe that since their residents take care of with a couple of the basic maintenance tasks involving their rental home, they can be expected to sometimes clean out the gutters as well. However, residents shouldn’t be handling gutter cleaning and repair. Gutter maintenance and repair require the use of ladders so appropriate safety measures must be taken to avoid falls and serious injury. When it comes to your single-family rental property, preventing liability concerns and other safety risks is crucial. Keeping your residents off of ladders and on the ground is the best way to do this.

Though maintaining and repairing gutters isn’t an especially difficult task, Charles County rental homeowners must think twice before opting to do it themselves. Proper safety precautions should be taken, and even then, ladders are still risky no matter how safely they are used. Nevertheless, the hardest part of all is still probably remembering to actually do regular maintenance on your rental property’s gutters. Gutters tend to be a maintenance job that remains out of sight – and out of mind – until they’ve become a big problem.
