Why is gutter cleaning so important?
Gutters need to be cleaned out regularly. When gutters have not been cleaned, several problems can result, including:
- Water damage to the outside of your property.
- Sagging and broken down gutters.
- Rusted gutters.
- Blocked drains.
- No water in your water butt to feed all of the plants and flowers in your back yard!
It is recommended that you have your gutters cleaned out at least every two months. Regular gutter maintenance means that you can catch any problems early and stop them from accumulating into bigger problems that are harder to solve. When the time comes around to have your gutters looked at, why not save yourself time and hassle and enlist the services of a professional?
Use a gutter cleaning company to save on time and effort
As well as saving you effort, taking advantage of our Gutter Cleaning Service will have numerous benefits for your property. Here are just three of them:
- As professionals, we know better than anyone how to give your gutter a thorough clean.
- Gutter cleaning can be a messy business, but we are always happy to get the job done whilst you relax and keep your hands clean.
- Most gutters are situated high up on the building and thus if you do not take the correct precautions you can run the risk of slipping from a ladder or injuring yourself on a section of metal guttering. We are trained to take this job in our stride, however, and we will complete the job safely as well as efficiently.
Don't run the risk of damaging your home or commercial property.
Many of us do not think about our gutters - until it rains and we realise that they are blocked with mold, stones and leaf matter and as a result our back yard is flooding or water is seeping in to the outer portions of the walls. Prevention is always better than cure, so it is a very smart idea to make use of our gutter cleaning service on a regular basis.
We also make sure your downspouts are thoroughly cleaned
Take a look at your gutter and you will see that it is composed of two key parts: the horizontal sections and the downspout. The gutter's downspout is absolutely essential as it allows water to flow safely and rapidly from the horizontal sections of the gutter down into the drain. As such, keeping your gutter's downspout clear at all times is very important. If debris is allowed to build up in the downspout it can cause overflowing at the top of the gutter or (if the debris washed downwards) a blocked and overflowing drain.
How are downspouts cleaned?
Downspouts can be cleaned by flushing them through with high pressure jets of water, or by using brushes and other gutter cleaning tools on extendable poles. It is crucial to keep your downspout well maintained. Hiring a professional to do so at regular intervals is highly advisable, not least because (unlike the horizontal sections of the gutter) the downspout is 'closed off' and so you are not able to see any buildup of debris with the naked eye. If caught early, problems with your downspout can be rectified very easily. However, if leaves, stones and other matter are allowed to build up in your downspout, this can result in serious clogging and flooding, and even cracks and breakages in your guttering system due to excess weight.
Tools we use to get your gutters and downspounts cleaned:
It's crucial to use the right tool for the job, and gutter cleaning tools can be as high tech or as low tech as you need them to be. Below is a list of some of the main gutter cleaning tools that are available, and a brief explanation of their advantages and disadvantages.
Hand cleaning - Extendable poles make it relatively easy to clean any gutter by hand whilst standing on the ground. Hand cleaning tools for gutters tend to take the form of scoops or brushes, and they are simple to use - and especially convenient when there is no electrical outlet nearby where you can plug in an electrical gutter cleaning device. Nevertheless, these manual tools make cleaning your gutter more arduous than automatic tools.
Vacuum cleaning - These tools are great for getting rid of leaves and other debris that - as we all know - can build up in your gutter and obstruct the flow of water. These tools are very simple to use (just like a regular vacuum cleaner, but specially adapted for use in a gutter) and make cleaning a gutter very quick. They tend to be more expensive than hand cleaning tools.
Pressure washers - These gutter cleaning tools use high pressure jets of water to blast away debris and give your gutter a thorough clean. They require some special expertise to use and tend to be pricier than standard manual tools, however they will get the job done to the highest standard.
Mechanical brushes - These tools are like classic manual brushes that have been mechanized to make them easier and more convenient to use. These are like the less strenuous version of a traditional hand brush and they are good for clearing away debris. If your gutter is very clogged, though, you may need an extra heavy duty brush or a a pressure washer to get rid of it all.
