Gutter Clearing & Cleaning

Did you know?

Clearing the gutters allows water to flow into the downpipes and away from your property.

Blocked gutters can cause damp and void home insurance!

Overflowing gutters will make a mess on patios and driveways causing them to go green and slippery.

  • Foundation Damage: Water overflowing from your gutters can occur during periods of heavy rainfall, which can also lead to pooling water at the base of your building. This can wear away the foundations of your house over time, potentially causing collapses in serious cases.
  • Insect Infestation: Blocked leaves and other debris like pine needles within a gutter can make an ideal breeding ground for several species of insect. Damp dark spaces such as a blocked drainpipe can therefore cause an uptick of insects within your garden, including wasp nests within the summer months.
  • Leaking Roofs: Blocked house guttering can cause water to pool on the roof of your property. In time, this can cause damage to your roof, and leaking within your building. Water damage will be a serious issue, coming with a large price tag for repairs.
  • Damage to Basement: Similar to foundation damage, pooling water at the base of your property can cause leaking within any basements on your home. This can lead to cracking and mould growth within your basement, and even to flooding in serious cases.
  • Damage to Fascias: Wooden fascia boards can rot when exposed to overflowing water over time. Replacing them can be a costly and time-consuming process.
  • Mould: Leaking or overflowing water can cause mould growth on both the inside and outside of your property. This can be both visually unappealing, and also potentially dangerous, depending on the type of mould growing within your living space.

Annual Clearing of your gutters is advised to ensure optimal waterflow all year round.

What’s involved and included?

  1. We will get up on the ladders to inspect inside the guttering and the downpipes.
  2. We will then use our vacuum to clear the gutters and downpipes.
  3. Next we’ll clean the guttering, fascia’s and soffits directly underneath the gutters.  (We can also clean any extra fascia’s and soffits as well as the eves/apex’s for an additional charge.)
  4. Finally the surfaces will be rinsed down and inspected.

Often you hear old style window cleaners say “Gutter vacuums aren’t good enough” and modern day cleaners say “old style cleaning is slow and pre-historic”

Our method uses both, we use the vacuum for time, and the ladders to check that everything is cleared out.  The truth is the gutter vac’s are very expensive in the region of £2000+, so many contractors don’t have one.  We believe the older method on the ladders and the modern way with a vacuum both have their place so we can guarantee a job done right every time without charging customers for wasted hours on each job.
