Hi, I’m Bryan Baeumler!

This fall, get a head start on spring by making your home Flood Ready!

Leaf build-up and clogs in gutters can cause water damage. Here’s how to clear leaves from your eavestroughs to keep water draining properly:

Be safe – set your ladder on level ground and wear gloves

Scoop debris away from downspouts

Rinse gutters and clear any clogs with a plumbing snake

Dispose of debris in a yard waste bag

Don't wait for the water!
