After each cut there will be a build up of grass and debris underneath your lawnmower. We are all guilty of simply putting our lawnmower back in the shed after we cut the garden. Leaving all of this build up can impact on your engine and cause it to overhear. Also, during those Winter months we are leaving wet grass lingering on the deck shell causing damage until we take it out to use again. Once it is safe to do so after a cut it is beneficial to clean out the debris when it is much easier and fresh. However, make sure to be safe around the blades which can be quite sharp. It is recommended to wear protective gloves while doing so.
