Gutters will fill with leaves and other debris over time, even with a product like gutter guard installed. Without regular cleaning the debris can clog downpipes and tight spaces in the gutters not allowing your roof system to manage the flow of rain water during a downpour or storm. This can cause a devastating effect to your home.
If the downpipes are blocked and dirty water builds up it can excessively flow over the top of the gutters causing potential flood issues around your home. But worse, it can also flow back to the house, into the eaves and eventually get into wall or roof cavities causing widespread water damage.
If you live in a bushfire prone area, gutters can clog up quickly and getting them cleared before the onset of really hot weather can be important in reducing the likelihood of flying embers causing spot fires on your home.
Depending on the location of your home and whether there are lot’s of trees around or not can help determine how regularly your gutters will need cleaning. As a general rule, they should be cleaned at least once a year, or 2-3 times a year if you are surrounded by tall trees (especially pine or eucalyptus).
If you are unsure when the gutters were last cleaned it’s usually fairly easy to tell if they need cleaning. Some obvious things to look out for include plants/weeds growing over the lip of the gutter, dripping or overflowing during normal periods of rain, or birds hanging around your gutters which is usually due to pooling water.
Cleaning gutters can be dangerous. Whether cleaning from a ladder or from the roof the risk of injury is ever present. All our staff are trained to work at heights with professional safety equipment. By leaving gutter cleaning to the professionals not only will you stay safe, you will get a better quality clean by someone who knows exactly what they are doing and has the correct equipment for the job.
Finally our gutter experts will be able to provide feedback on the quality of your gutters, your roof and anything that may prevent further blockages or damage. This information can increase the lifespan of your roof and gutters potentially saving you thousands in costly repairs.
We can’t check this without cleaning your gutters though, so get your gutter clean scheduled as soon as possible.
