Ensure water is directed away from the home by regularly inspecting and cleaning your home's gutters (if installed).

1) Inspect gutter for debris starting near the downspout and work your way around the home

2) Remove any large debris that may be blocking flow of water toward downspout

3) To clean out finer materials, flush the gutter with a hose starting at the opposite end of the downspout

4) If water doesn't drain, the downspout may be clogged. Use a high pressure nozzle and flush out the debris from the bottom of the downspout.
