Gutter Cleanup and Repairs for Your Santa Paula Rental Property

Santa Paula Rental Property with Clean Gutters and DownspoutsA crucial component of having a profitable rental property is regular cleaning and repair of the home’s gutters. Gutters work by gathering water from large roof surfaces and bringing it away from the home itself, protecting the window wells, foundation, and other susceptible areas from flooding.

Neglected gutters can eventually result in costly repairs. Dry leaves and other debris collecting in a gutter will prevent the downspouts from draining correctly. Blocked gutters are going to freeze, overflow, and pull the gutters loose over time. Water pooling in the gutters can also rot wood and rusty metal. Water can damage a foundation, flood a basement, and more when gutters fail.

A number of Santa Paula rental property owners assume that their residents will occasionally clean out the gutters— since they already take care of some of the basic maintenance tasks around their rental house. Then again, gutter cleaning and repair are not jobs that residents should be handling. As gutter maintenance and repair require using ladders, proper safety measures should be taken to ward off falls and serious injury. It’s important to circumvent liability concerns and other safety risks when it comes to your single-family rental property. Keeping your residents off of ladders and on the ground is the best method to do this.

While maintaining and repairing gutters might not be an especially hard job, Santa Paula rental property owners should think carefully before planning to do it themselves. Appropriate safety precautions have to be in place, and even then, ladders are risky no matter how safely they are being used. Still, the toughest part of all may be remembering to actually do regular maintenance on your rental property’s gutters. Gutters have a tendency to be something that stays out of sight – and out of mind – until they are suddenly a huge problem.
