With the Winter months ahead the leaves from our trees start dropping cluttering and blocking up our gutters and drains.
Gutter cleaning consists of cleaning all debris from gutters and downpipes, and off all accessible roof areas and cleaning up all gutter related debris off the ground. In addition, we will identify problem areas and suggest corrective action as a part of our service.
Gutter cleaning is a form of preventive maintenance that can actually prolong the life of your home. For that reason, gutters should be cleaned as often as needed. Generally, most of our customers’ have their gutters cleaned two or more times a year depending on the surroundings of their homes (i.e. trees with blossoms, pollen strings, leaves, pine needles, seeds, acorns, sticks and other debris).
We recommend that particular attention is carried out in cleaning the offset bends and checking all downpipes. Over the years most of our call outs are due to blockages within the offset bends. This is caused by the build up of moss, leaves and debris which compact in the bends causing the storm water to back flow which leads to leaks and damp on the external walls of the properties.
Give us a call today on 01483 274469 to make sure you prevent the problem before it becomes costly.
