Gutters and Downspout
It is important to clean your gutters at least twice a year. It Is best to do it once in the spring and once in the fall. Check your gutters by climbing up on the ladder. If the gutters have backed up you want to make sure to scoop out all the sticks and leaves. It is best to wear work gloves to protect your hands. Hose the gutters after you have removed the gunk. Hose down the downspout to clear it from sticks and leaves. If it clogs use a hose bladder

Skunk Odor
