When was the last time you cleaned your gutters?
It doesn’t matter whether you have a domestic or commercial property, the outcome of not keeping your gutters and downpipes clean is just the same.
Contrary to what you may think, the rain doesn’t keep your guttering clean. There is a lot of other debris that can land in your guttering and wreak havoc.
Fallen leaves, grit, dirt and moss are just a few of the regular culprits for clogging up your guttering and downpipes.
If not dealt with in good time the guttering and downpipes can become easily broken and damaged.
This extra weight can even pull the gutters away from the wall creating cracks and a bigger issue to solve.
Living in a tree-free area doesn’t mean your gutters will be okay. You’d be shocked at just how much dirt and grit can accumulate on the average roof.
When your guttering is blocked, rainwater can only land on the foundations.. This will lead to water seeping into the walls, causing damp.
Over time this will cause major structural problems which are costly to fix.
How should you be keeping your gutters clean and functional all year round?
To keep your guttering and downpipes in tip-top condition, you should clean them at least once a year in the winter but twice a year is best in both Spring and Winter.
Yes, you could try cleaning your gutters yourself if you are not afraid of heights and have good sturdy ladders.
However, it is always best when tackling jobs like this to get the experts in especially if your gutters are in an awkward location.
It is far safer to use a professional to clean them quickly and safely than to attempt it yourself.
Not keeping your gutters clean will lead to your guttering becoming blocked. This causes them to eventually become damaged and break away from the wall.
In addition to this water will seep into your walls causing damp. If left, over time this will cause structural damage in the future.
Calling in a professional to carry out a quick annual clean will not only keep them clean but will prevent a host of more serious problems arising later down the line.
