Why gutter cleaning is essential for home maintenance
Gutters provide the means by which rainwater can safely flow from the roof via downpipes into drains. It is therefore vital that gutters are clean, clear and free of any obstructions that can cause blockages.
Gutters get blocked by many things such as tree leaves, twigs, moss and dirt. They also make a perfect environment for plants to grow when seeds are dropped by birds or get blown into gutters by the wind.
Blocked gutters prevent water from flowing into drains and the water level inside gutters increases until it starts overflowing and can be forced into roof space or runs down walls where it can penetrate into exterior walls through tiny cracks. The water then penetrates further causing damp patches on interior walls. In severe cases it can even cause structural damage costing many thousands of pound to remedy.
Gutters filled with water for prolonged periods can also start to weaken and collapse from the strain of the weight of water. Gutter cleaning and clearance is essential for looking after your home. It is recommended by experts to have your gutters cleaned at least every 12 months but it may be necessary to do so more often if you have local conditions that affect their maintenance such as overhanging trees that cause blockages from falling leaves and twigs.
