The changing leaves of autumn give the season a special look and feel. However, you need to rake them and throw them out once they hit the ground. To learn why you should be diligent with this task, read the post below.

Why You Should Get Rid of Dead Leaves

Unkempt Exterior

For starters, if you allow the dead leaves to pile up in your home's exterior, it will end up looking disheveled and unkempt, which aren't ideal adjectives to attach to your house.

Risk of Slipping

If the weather has been rainy, dead leaves on the ground can increase the chances of somebody slipping, falling, and getting injured.

Fungi Development

Moreover, a pile of damp leaves is the perfect breeding ground for fungi, which can affect your and your family's health immensely.

Fire Hazard

If the weather has been rather dry, however, then you can expect those dry dead leaves to become a fire hazard in your home.

Hidden Beings

Snakes, spiders, ticks, and a bunch of other not-so-pleasant beings can be hiding in your piles of dead leaves, which is why it's not recommended that you play with them.

Unseen Perils

Lastly, a layer of dead leaves won't let you see what's on the ground. Mud, a hole, rocks, or other elements could be beneath them, meaning you could get injured.
