Holla Beauty!

Holidays are upon us whether we like it or not-meaning it’s time to prepare your house for guests!

Meaning it’s time to get the gutters and  downspouts cleaned out so you don’t get a nasty surprise in an overflow if there is a sudden storm.


Meet Twelve Oaks Roofing!







Are you one of the many homeowners who thinks gutter cleaning is a once a year project?  Or, maybe you have not considered gutter cleaning at all.  Gutters are not just ornaments lining the perimeter of your roof.  They serve an important function.


Water and moisture from leaves or other debris that collect on your roof can cause water to accumulate and even puddle on your roof.  Water is meant to flow free thru your gutters and downspouts and drain away from your home’s foundation.


Clogged gutters are water damage issues waiting to happen.  Let Twelve Oaks Roofing, a full-service roofing and home improvement company serving West Bloomfield, Michigan for more than 20 years, come to your aid.  Call us anytime, 24/7 at 248-525-6950.  We will send a qualified team of professionals to maintain your gutters.




A percentage of homeowners clean their own gutters.  This is dangerous.  The average home in Michigan has a type of sloped roof.  Climbing the ladder is dangerous enough, but balancing while removing debris from the gutters is simply too much.


Again, why not be safe and leave the climbing and gutter cleaning to experienced, fully licensed and insured, roofing professionals.  Gutter cleaning does not take long but its benefits are long lasting.


Here are some signs your gutters and downspouts may be compromised:


  • Water pooling on your lawn is a sign there is a gutter and downspout problem.


  • Water pooling at the foundation of your house is a sign the gutters are clogged, possibly damaged or that the downspouts are not functioning.  Water should run out of the gutter, thru the downspout and away from the base of your house.


  • Animals crawling in the gutters are a sign that there is debris in the gutters. They often make a home where there is debris buildup.


  • Birds nesting in your gutters are a sign of clogged gutters.


  • Plants growing in your gutter mean the gutter has accumulated dirt.


  • Rainwater that simply spills over resembling a waterfall means there’s something in the gutter.


  • Sagging gutters from the weight of debris or water standing inside of them is a telltale sign.

How to remove basement mold: safe, effective professional removal with Downriver Cleanup & Restoration

Hi Beauty!

It’s finally Fall and Winter will be here before you know it!

So, when would now be a good time to get your home ready for adverse weather? For anyone who wants to have their house prepared for severe weather, it starts with a professional cleaning and restoration to help withstand any storm that comes your way!






Downriver Cleanup & Restoration has a team of trained professionals who can quickly clean and restore your basement.



Today’s basements are often bedrooms, entertainment rooms and family rooms.  As part of a regularly used space for sleeping and regular activity, your basement should be treated like any other room in the house with regards to safety and security for you and your family.


Aside from bathrooms, the basement is the most common place for mold growth inside a residential home.  There are a few key reasons why basements have mold problems.


  1. The most obvious reason is a “flooded basement” caused by flooding due to severe weather conditions, sump pump failure or even broken water pipes.


  1. Relative humidity (RH) levels can be high in basements. The EPA sets as a guideline 65 percent or less as acceptable RH.  Refer to for more EPA information relative to mold.


  1. Since the basement is underground, if drainage outside your home is not functioning properly, the basement walls will seep and even leak from around the outside of the foundation.


Downriver Cleanup & Restoration located downriver in Michigan, serving cities and surrounding communities such as Gibraltar, Monroe, Riverview, Lincoln Park  and Grosse Ile to name a few, for over 20 years.  We are an IICRC, Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, certified company.  This means we uphold the highest standards in all areas of cleanup & restoration from
