Now that we are in the cold and wet season, it is more important than ever to make sure your gutters and downpipes are clear. Build up of leaves, sticks and other refuse can be detrimental to your property especially with heavy rains and storms on the way. The purpose of gutters are to control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, and your foundations, and if not cared for properly can be very harmful to your house.
Packed gutters can lead to a leaky roof and possible water damage to the interior of the house, likely your window sills or ceiling. A build up of refuse may appear to be a small issue but without regular maintenance and cleaning can result in thousands of dollars worth of damage. On top of this, filled gutters are hot spots for pests, such as insects and rodents, and can lead to mould growth.
While it may be tempting to clean up your own gutters, it can also be extremely risky. Poor equipment and tall properties are accidents waiting to happen.
