Any accumulated debris and fallen tree branches should be removed from the roof. Dirt and leaves piled up on the roof retain moisture. After a storm, they deteriorate on the surface, which can lead to mold and rot. Be sure to clean your gutters, as well. Otherwise, water, debris, twigs, and leaves can clog the system and stop water from flowing off the roof, down the drain, and away from the property.
When water stays on and around your building, it may lead to foundational issues, so gutter and downspout health is paramount. To avoid a backed-up drainage system, a great rule of thumb is to clean the gutters quarterly to keep them from overflowing with debris.
