Dropping leaves and cooler temperatures are a beautiful reminder that it is fall in Indiana. The beauty of the season is often tempered with preparations for the winter weather just around the corner. One task on every home-owner’s to-do list is the duty of cleaning gutters. Leaves and debris accumulates over the course of the summer months, resulting in blocked gutters and downspouts that overflow during the autumn rains and winter snows.
