Why gutter cleaning is important

Gutters are an important part of the structural integrity of your home, by directing water away from your roof, walls, and foundations, unfortunately, they are also something which is often overlooked which can result in expensive consequences.

Blocked gutters become heavy and can sag therefore water flow is affected and the gutter itself can break. A gutter clogged with sticks, leaves and other can result in interior damp and water damage to both the exterior and interior of your home. Something else to remember is; gutters full of debris offer the perfect environment for insects, pests, and rodents.

The biggest problems caused by blocked gutters include:

  • Damp - Leaking gutter joints can be a big problem and are one of the most common causes of isolated cases of dampness in both domestic and commercial properties
  • Rot - When the water can't run cleanly through gutters, they can overflow which results in water dripping down the exterior walls eventually it will seep into cracks affecting joists and timber causing rot and resulting in expensive repair bills.
  • Foundation issues - gutters direct rainwater away from the property's foundations, However, when the gutters are blocked, the water runs straight down the side of the house and over a period of time will damage the foundations. This can cause rot and even structural damage to your home if left too long.
  • Pests - Flies and other nasty bugs love standing water so, it is important to keep your gutters free from debris and did you know gutters and downpipes are one of the most common ways rats and mice can enter your property? Another reason to have gutters checked regularly.

That is why it is recommended that your gutters should be inspected annually. The best time to do this is just before winter when the autumn leaves have fallen and before the harshness of a North-East winter begins, that way you will have a reduced chance of blockages and can schedule any repairs before the wet and windy weather does further damage. It is also a good idea to get your guttering checked in spring just in case the rain, wind, and snow have damaged anything.
