Clogged Gutters Can Sink a Home. SERVPRO of Missoula Can Help Prevent That.
Did you know that cleaning your gutters can help prevent rain damage to your home? If water has caused problems for you, call SERVPRO® of Missoula so we can help with the restoration.
SERVPRO of Missoula Remediates Water Damage
Gutters channel water off the roof so water doesn’t:
- Build up enough weight on the roof to crush it
- Erode the exterior walls
- Pool around the foundation and destroy it
- Turn the basement or first floor into a soggy mess
- Provide a friendly environment for microbial growth
As soon you notice, or even suspect, water damage, call us at 406-327-9500.
Our emergency services are available 24/7/52.
If rainwater doesn’t drain from your gutters, the gutters are probably clogged. Cleaning them now can save a mess in the future.
Check the roof, walls, and foundation for signs of damage. Early signs are not always obvious, so you may want a professional opinion. SERVPRO of Missoula also provides assessments, not just emergency services.

January 7th is Old Rock Day. We hoped it meant we should set the volume to 11 for The Rolling Stones (yeah, we went there), but it’s really a day to appreciate fossils (which still includes Keith, right?). That’s fine with us. We like fossils.
