If the water stays around for more than 24 hours or moves to foundations, look for any loose connections in the drainage system. If cleaning doesn’t solve the issue, you can resort to grading the area around the whole house with dirt. And make sure to clean that gutter all too well, especially after Fall as the gutter might end up accumulating fallen leaves.

Be prepared to have to clean up the weed and shrubbery.

With simple tips, you can keep your home maintained and looking new! Also, always keep a hybrid saw at home for little fixings whenever required.
