Information

Gutter cleaning is not the most liked job that needs to be done around your home, often you leave it to the last minute and end up being on the roof when it is wet and raining, trying to unblock downpipes and clear debris from your gutters. Seek professional advice and quotes and do comparisons on the price you may save money and the hassle of cleaning your own gutters.


Blocked gutters prevent water draining away from your house which can seep into your property foundations. Gutter cleaning helps avoid costly repairs and roof damage. Gutter systems should be ideally thoroughly cleaned once a year.

Water is one of the most damaging substances to your home, which is why there is such care taken with roofs, eaves and gutters. If water flow is not carefully controlled, water can cause cosmetic and structural damage to all surfaces of your home including brick, wood, paint and cement. Repair of these surfaces can be very expensive. Your first line of defense against water is your gutter system. A properly hung gutter system will move water away from structures and walkways and keep water damage from occurring to the outside and, in extreme cases, the inside of your house.

Blocked gutters may cause standing water that will add weight to the gutter system. The gutter may start to sag which can damage the gutter sections and require replacement. The extra weight may also cause the brackets for the gutter to pull away from the fascia requiring bracket replacement. If the problem is not remedied at that point, the gutter may start to overflow where the sagging section is located. If the water continually drips or runs onto ground below, the formation of moss and algae will cause a slippery surface and a falling hazard.
