FROZEN GUTTERS: Tips for defrosting and preventing damage

If your gutters have frozen, it can lead to serious damage to your home. Here are some tips on how to deal with frozen gutters and prevent potential damage.

Do not be risky. This is very dangerous, and we advice you to call our specialists from DT Cleaning for help but you can do that by yourself if you wish.

Remove snow and ice: Use a ladder and a plastic shovel to carefully remove any snow and ice from the gutters. Be sure to work slowly and cautiously to avoid damaging the gutters.

Melt the ice: You can use a hairdryer or a heat gun to melt the ice in the gutters. Be careful not to overheat the gutters, as this can cause damage. Additionally, you can use calcium chloride ice melt to help melt the ice and prevent refreezing.

Insulate the gutters: Adding insulation to your gutters can help prevent freezing in the future. You can use foam insulation or heat tape to keep the gutters warm and prevent ice buildup.

Clear the downspouts: Make sure the downspouts are clear of any ice and debris to allow proper drainage. This will help prevent water from backing up and causing damage to your home.

Monitor the weather: Keep an eye on the weather forecast and take proactive measures to prevent freezing, such as applying ice melt or insulating the gutters before a freeze.

Please be careful when you try to work on height in winter time. The ice on the roof can be very slippery and it can be dangerous for you and your family. Do not put your life on risk, call us at +16475588411 or e-mail us to info@dtcleaning.ca and do not worry about your house any season.
