Why It’s Important to Clean Gutters Regularly

Why Do Gutters Need a Regular Clean?

The gutters on your home are much more than just a decoration, they are there to help prevent water from infiltrating and damaging your home. Because of this they are extremely important. If you don’t keep them clean and in good repair you may regret it later on! If you ensure regular gutter cleaning is carried out, this can prevent damage both internally and externally.

When should I get my gutters cleaned?

In most cases, it is not leaves that block our gutters! One example is when gutters fill up with fine grained debris such as roof tile silt. This provides a perfect foundation for grass and plant seedlings to grow, and with a continuous supply of water running into the gutters, this gutter blocking foliage seems to flourish better than it would in our gardens! It is usually Spring and Summer when you notice growth emerge from your gutters, this should encourage you to clean the gutters out quickly before the problems begin.

Why Use Professional Gutter Cleaners?

Very few homeowners possess the right tools or skills for a gutter cleaning task. Thinking that it is a simple case of climbing a ladder and emptying the debris in to a black sack is where the first problems lie.

This way you can be sure the job is done and there will be no nasty surprises come the heaviest rains of the year.
