Seasonal Reminder — Keep Your Gutters Clear


Keeping gutters and downspouts clear and flowing freely can help direct water away from your home. This, in turn helps to keep water from coming into your basement or eroding foundation. It's a small step that can mean a lot for your home. Call the Risk Reduction office at (785) 587-4506 if you have questions or need assistance.
