Our specialist Gutter Vacuum System reaches high up into your gutters removing leaves and moss from the safety of the ground without the need for ladders.

Why Do Gutters Become Clogged?.

  1. Fallen Leaves
  2. Organic Growth
  3. Small Animals
  4. Broken Tiles
When there is too much debris in the gutter it traps water, causing the gutter to become heavy and the joints mis-aligned. Excess rainwater will pour out of the sides of the gutter and on to the side of the house causing expensive repairs. Trapped water in the gutter can freeze in the winter causing damage to the gutter.

These issues can be avoided by making sure that the gutters are cleared in both the autumn and spring.

Our approach to gutter clearing is flexible and we are happy to come along whenever you need us. However, to avoid expensive repairs, we recommend that your gutters get cleared every autumn and spring.

Why Is Gutter Clearing Vital To Property Maintenance?

Clearing the insides of gutters may not rank high in home maintenance for some, but regular upkeep is essential. Gutters are designed to allow rainwater to flow away from the building preventing potential damage to the property. When the gutters become clogged, they can result in expensive repairs and that is why this type of maintenance is essential.

How Do Gutters Get Blocked?.

All sorts of natural vegetation including leaves, moss, grass, and other debris builds up every year. The wind blows the leaves onto roofs which fall and collect inside the gutters. When wet, these leaves can stick to the inside of the gutters, thus creating blockages in corners and down pipes. This periodically becomes the perfect breeding ground for wind-blown or bird dropped seeds. Moss and weeds then begin to grow and when left they can take hold of your gutters and block the natural flow of water causing an overflow. This is why it is vital to keep your gutters in a good clear state and free flowing ahead of the winter months to avoid damage caused by snow or ice.

Why Does Moss Grow On Some Properties?

We are all aware that moss grows in damp environments and typically in the shade. Properties with overhanging trees or those which are north facing receive less daylight and are therefore more prone to moss. This moss grows and holds onto water like a sponge. It then becomes loose and falls into the gutters.

How Do Blocked Gutters Cause Property Damage?

When gutters become blocked, rainwater is unable to flow which causes an overflow. This overflow creates a risk of expensive damage to walls, windows, fascia boards, ceilings, and possible damage to the foundations. There also becomes a serious risk of mould spores and dampness within the home which can cause illness.
Whichever gutter type the property has, regular maintenance will ensure they are free of debris and save on expensive repairs. Cast iron, pressed steel or plastic gutters – it is essential that these are maintained to ensure rainwater is free flowing.

How Do I Clear The Gutters?

If your gutters are overflowing or leaking or if there is proof that water has run down the exterior of the building, it’s highly likely there is a blockage.
