The importance of the gutter installation is recognized only during the rain season. Thus, the gutters should be prepared to face the seasons. Gutter cleaning and maintenance are the only source to achieve it. The gutter maintenance process varies depending on the seasons.

Preparation for the rainy season:
The gutters’ preparation for fall seldom overlaps with the preparation method for rainy season. As the rainy season proceeds as soon as the autumn ends, folks should do extra care in maintaining the gutters. Some steps include:
- As the first preparation of the gutters for the upcoming rainy seasons the dusts and the junks inside the gutters should be removed manually. This can be done easily by the folks with the assistance of the ladders and the gloves. If the gutters are left unprepared for the rain season, enormous amount of leaves and debris with worms can also expected to the most. So have necessary precautions while doing this.
- Check for the leaks in the gutters, this time it is not just for the inspection sake, this is very mandate part to given priority. This should be done after cleaning the junks in the gutters. The water is made to pass through the gutter path. The leaks can be easily predicted with the weather is dry. Soon after the notification, gutter replacement and repair should be done.
- Downspout inspection is also as important as gutter inspection process. The downspout is the closed portion so it is a bit difficult to check for the blocks.
