Tony Iannelli, inventor and founder of Gutter Covers International, shares helpful information on how to stop the home damage -- ruined drywall, flooded basements, foundation problems, washed out landscaping -- caused by gutter clogs. Tony knows that shopping for gutter protection and gutter guards is not something you do every day, so he takes the confusion out of this experience through this blog.
It’s that time of year!Warm summer days lead into warm summer nights.You long to be outdoors celebrating the
season.But, you are worried about all
the news regarding diseases spread by mosquitoes and other yard pests.Two of the top viruses making headlines today
are West Nile Virus and Zika Virus.Both
of these viruses are contracted initially through bites from mosquitoes.Different mosquitoes carry different
viruses.For example, West Nile Virus
can be carried by the Culex species; Zika is carried by the Aedes aegypti and
Aedes albopictus species.
The best protection against these viruses is to ensure you
do not have a breeding ground for mosquitoes around your house.It is VERY important to remove any standing
water or areas with excessive moisture by targeting these problem areas:
Clogged gutters provide a nesting ground for mosquitoes and
other pests and may be more difficult to maintain and keep clean than other
problem areas for mosquitoes.If you
have clogged gutters or downspouts, you may not even know it because you don’t
want to climb a ladder to check.
Installing gutter covers on your gutters will keep them free
flowing and free of clogs.If there is
nothing in your gutters, it is very unlikely that they will become a breeding
ground for mosquitoes.And don’t forget
to check your downspouts as well.
An ounce of prevention is worth a lot!Keep your family safe this summer by
installing gutter protection on your home.No more worries about those pesky pests!
