Cleaning your gutters is probably one of the most disliked jobs of homeowners, thus it is seldom carried out. Unfortunately, neglecting
to clean out your gutters regularly can have some negative consequences on your roof and home. Your gutters can easily become
clogged with debris such as leaves, branches, soil, bird nests, insect nests and litter – especially if you live in an area
with a lot of trees and wildlife. The best time to clean your gutters is between the end of winter and the start of spring,
after the trees have finished dropping their leaves.
Clogged guttering can have a big impact of the natural water drainage away from your home, potentially damaging soffit and fascia,
possibly even leaking water inside. Water leaking into your home, even a small amount can cause damp and mould, which can affect
the health of you and your family. In some unfortunate cases, dead animals can become caught in your guttering or downpipes,
potentially causing bad smells and a health hazard.
Gutters are a common place for local wildlife such as birds and insects to build their nests – which may result in a large amount
of pests such as wasps hanging around in your garden and home. Birds, on the other hand can defecate onto your windows and
cars as well as make a lot of noise moving around in the guttering at night-time.
One of the services we offer is an extensive cleaning of your guttering – including removal of debris and using high-pressure water
hoses to deep-clean the insides of your downpipes. We will also carry out any required repairs on old or damaged guttering.
