Do My Gutters Need Cleaning?
For some people the condition of their gutters is not even something that crosses their mind. However, what you can’t see can often come back to hurt you- or at least your wallet!
Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important?
Your gutters control the flow of rainwater that falls onto your roof and into the gutter channels, thus protecting your house roof, walls, foundation and landscape.
However a clogged gutter stops this system allowing the over spill to cause a leaky roof and water damage to the interior or exterior of your home. What’s more the added weight of stagnant water will attract flies, bacteria and apply added pressure to gutter fixings and channels causing them to break. If this happens you may well find yourself forking out on costly fees to repair or replace those damaged channels. No wonder experts say if neglected, gutters can turn from a necessity to a nightmare!
For this reason, most people have their gutters routinely cleared of moss and dead leaves by a specialist gutter cleaning company.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

However, if your house has quite a few trees surrounding it this could increase the frequency of the cleaning required. Contact us today and we can provide a regular cleaning service package for you.
