Well, just about anything! The wind picks up trash and debris laying around the yard or street and some of it can find a home in your window well.

Leaves from the fall and grass clippings from you mowing your lawn are most likely to end up down into that hole.

Not only can leaves find their way in there, but humans and pets accidently can too! At this point, it can be extremely dangerous when little children or pets are playing around in the yard and find themselves falling down the hole of your window well.

That doesn’t look good for you as a homeowner and it can end up in severe injury depending on the fall. We can keep all of these things out of your window well with one simple solution. Keep reading…

As A Homeowner, Why Should I Care If It Gets Backed Up?

Not only does this build up look bad, it can be dangerous too. If the window well gets too packed with miscellaneous items, it won’t be able to serve its purpose! It’s meant to be an emergency escape when there is no other way out of your house.

If there is a fire, you and your family need to be able to escape out of the window well safely.

These random items will also cause your water drain to back up. If the drain gets clogged water can easily fill up the window well. When the window well gets filled up with water it can cause leaking into your basement window.

Plain and simple, it will cause a big mess that you don’t want to deal with. It’s easier to take care of now before it causes other damaging issues to your home.
