Why is regular cleaning important?

Regular gutter cleaning is important for a number of reasons:

  • It helps to prevent water damage to your home.  Gutters that are full of debris can cause water to back up and seep into your home, causing serious damage.

  • Helps to prevent insect infestations.  Insects are attracted to standing water, so if you have gutters that are full of water, you're more likely to attract pests.

  • Prevents leaves and other debris from clogging your gutters.  When gutters are clogged, they're not able to do their job properly and can actually end up damaging your home.

  • Helps improve the appearance of your home.  Gutters that are full of leaves and debris can be unsightly and make your home look neglected.

  • Can help to extend the life of your gutters.  When gutters are clogged with debris, they're more likely to become damaged or even break.

  • Can prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.  Ice dams can cause serious damage to your roof and gutters, so it's important to keep them clear.

  • Can help you save money on repairs.  If you have gutters that are full of debris, they're more likely to need repairs more often than if they were kept clean.

  • Can help you avoid costly gutter repairs.  If you have gutters that are full of debris, they're more likely to become damaged or even break.  By keeping them clean, you can avoid having to pay for expensive repairs.​

 

As you can see, there are many good reasons to keep your gutters clean.  If you're not already doing so, make it a point to start cleaning them on a regular basis. Your home will thank you for it!

Gutter Blockages

 

Failure to maintain your gutters inevitably causes congestion & prevents them from functioning correctly.  Congestion is often caused by leaves and twigs fallen from trees located close to the property, moss dislodged from the roof, mortar that has vacated its original location from ridge tiles or chimney stacks & twigs dropped by birds on route to building their nests.


Carrying out regular gutter cleaning helps to prevent the following from occurring and allows the gutters to drain properly.

Is your roof to blame?

If your gutters are always getting blocked or you are finding moss keeps appearing at the base of your downpipe it would be wise to inspect your roof as it maybe because moss has become dislodged from the roof, made its way into your gutters, and finally landed at the base of your downpipe.  If this is the case, then your roof is probably in need of a bit of due care and attention.

Gutter Cleaners

 

A gutter vacuum otherwise known as a gutter cleaner allows gutters to be cleaned from the ground and causes less of a mess than more traditional methods.  Work carried out is also done in a safer manner as well.
 

We use a specialised gutter vacuum system capable of cleaning the gutters on buildings up to 4 storeys high from ground level using telescopic poles.  Our gutter cleaner is also equipped with a camera so we can take before and after photographs for you to see the end results.

We can ensure your gutters are clear by removing debris residing in the channel and get your gutters in tip top condition and back to functioning how they should.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is it worth cleaning your own gutters?

Many homeowners dread cleaning their gutters, but it is an important task that should not be neglected.

 

Blocked gutters can cause water to back up and overflow, damaging the gutters, fascia boards and cause costly water damage.  In addition, clogged gutters provide a perfect breeding ground for mould growth and encourage unwanted pests. 

 

As a result, cleaning your gutters on a regular basis is essential for maintaining the integrity of your home and to prevent a pest infestation.  However, some people prefer to hire a professional gutter cleaning service. While this option is more expensive, it can save you time and ensure that the job is done properly.

 

Ultimately, the decision of whether to clean your own gutters or hire a professional is a personal one. But either way, keeping your gutters clean is an important part of protecting your property.

How do professionals clean gutters?

Professional gutter cleaners are equipped with specialist equipment specifically designed for cleaning gutters from the ground floor using a gutter cleaning machine, a telescopic pole and various attachments to get the job done in the most efficient, effective and safest manner.

If there are access to the gutters is difficult a different approach will be necessary and may require using ladders or the use of a cherry picker.

 

They will conduct a survey of the guttering system using hi-tech camera equipment which allows them to take photographs and videos of the guttering systems to identify any clogged gutters, damaged gutters, the structural integrity of them and offer expert advice on any other potential problems.

How much does it cost to have a gutter cleaned?

The cost for gutter cleaning will vary depending on your situation.  There are many factors that influence how much it will cost to clean guttering such as the height of the building, access to them, the condition they're in and how much guttering there is.

 

The guttering on a conservatory roof will cost less than a 4-storey building with accessibility issues as the cleaning process is easier because the gutters and downpipes on large buildings are more demanding and require greater time and effort and specialist equipment.

 

If specialist equipment is required, such as scaffolding or a cherry picker it will influence the costs involved to clean the gutters which will ultimately affect the gutter cleaning cost.

What time of year is best to clean gutters?

While gutters can be cleaned at any time of year, there are a few things to consider when deciding when to tackle this chore.

 

If you live in an area with a lot of trees, it's best to clean your gutters in the fall, after the leaves have fallen.  This will help to prevent clogs and ensure that water can flow freely through your gutters.

 

In regions with milder winters, gutters can be cleaned in late winter or early spring.  This will help to remove any debris that has accumulated over the winter months.

 

However, if your region experiences a lot of snow and ice in the winter, it's best to wait until the spring thaw to clean your gutters.

 

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your gutters are always clear and functioning properly.

How often should you clean your gutters?

The frequency at which you should clean your gutters depends on the type and abundance of foliage near your home. 

 

If your property is surrounded by trees which are in close proximity to it, once every 3 - 6 months should be enough; however, if not, cleaning your gutters may only be necessary once a year for them stay healthy!  If in the mean time you notice you have leaking gutters, you should probably get your gutters cleaned immediately.
