Do you need a gutter cleaning downspout flush this spring? Maybe not now, but the way that the trees are loading up with seeds and flowers, your gutters will surely need cleaning as the season progresses. Because of the late freeze last year, Cleveland went a whole season without seedpods. Many of the trees, especially the maples only had leaves. This led to spring debris failing to fill up gutters and downspouts. Honestly, it was one of the worst seasons in recent memory for the gutter cleaning industry. Quotas were drastically dropped, in some cases by over 60%. It wasn’t all bad though. Consumers were delighted by the fact that they could skip one of their routine gutter cleans.
Again, this spring looks to get back on track, but in a big way. Because the trees were able to store up the extra energy over the last two seasons, they are beginning to produce access seedpods and flowers. A scenario unfolded similarly in 2015. It was actually such a bumper crop of seeds, that the trees produced fewer leaves, making the trees look as if they were dying. Many Clevelanders thought that their trees died. With very few leaves, and ugly, brown seedpods, the site wasn’t very pretty. Luckily, the trees were not harmed. Click here to read about the 2015 season.
The 2017 season is shaping up in a similar fashion to two years ago. We still have some time to go, but there seems to be an abundance of seed pods sprouting. Leaves appear to be stunted in their growth. It will be interesting to see exactly how the spring unfolds. The Gutter Boys Co. cleans gutters and installs premium Valor Gutter Guards.
