Professional Gutter Cleaning

Why keep your gutters clean?

It can be easy to forget about your gutters. But those gutters around your roof tiles are pretty important, not only to the look of your home, but to the condition and upkeep of your roof, walls and structural foundations. A guttering system safely diverts rainfall it into drains, stopping it from seeping into the building and its foundations.

The problem is that gutters can fill up with plenty of things other than water, such as leaves, sticks, dirt and moss. When this debris builds up it stops your gutters from functioning the way they should. Overflowing water will damage the surrounding timber, and in some cases cause structural damage to walls and foundations which can end up costing thousands to get repaired.

When should I get my gutters cleaned?

It’s fairly easy to tell when your gutters need a clean. Gutters should be able to handle most normal periods of rainfall, so when gutters begin to drip or completely overflow, it’s usually a sign that they need a clean or professional inspection. Sometimes birds will also hang around your roof to make the most of the pooling water caused by blocked guttering.

As a general rule, gutters should be cleaned at least once a year. The best time to clean is during autumn or late winter after all nearby trees have shed their leaves. As attractive as the colours of autumn are, all those falling leaves are most likely to end up in your guttering system. However, in some cases, gutters will need to be cleaned more than just once a year. Some trees will shed throughout the year, also the wet, swampy environment created by clogged gutters makes it a perfect breeding ground for insects and can attract other pests. That is definitely a problem you want to avoid! This is why it’s so important to stick to a regular maintenance program.

Why should I leave gutter cleaning to the professionals?

A professional service is much quicker, easier and hassle free than doing it yourself. Secondly, it’s much safer.
