It is important to think about your guttering. If water can not drain away effectively it can pool in the gutters causing damp or it can run down the building which can slowly and quietly cause considerable damage to your property. By making gutter cleaning part of your routine maintenance you are protecting yourself against many potential problems.
The damage is not limited to the outside. Potential internal issues include damp, rising damp, water reaching the cavity area and internal spaces.
The guttering and drainage system of your home is critical in maintaining its structural integrity.
What could be blocking the gutters?
Blockages can be caused by dirt, moss from the roof, twigs and branches, leaves - even plants growing in the build up of debris.
How do you know if the guttering is blocked?
Can you remember the last time you had them cleaned? If the answer is no, they will likely need to be cleared. Have a look at your guttering. Can you see sagging? Does water run over the sides of the guttering during rain. Can you see debris or even plants sticking out?
Our gutter cleaning service will remove leaves, including wet or compacted leaves, moss, plants, roof debris and fallen mortar and any slime or sludge leaving the guttering fully functional once again.

Make gutter cleaning part of your annual maintenance and protect your property against expensive water damage.
You can see in the first picture that there are plants growing in this guttering. We took a couple of kilograms of sludge, moss and plant growth from just 4 meters of guttering. All of this 'sludge' was stopping the gutters from functioning and holding up water, causing potential problems if left AND adding strain to the fixings from the combined weight of what is trapped in the gutters..
A build up of sludge is preventing water from reaching the downpipe and will just get worse year on year.
After cleaning the water can drain away effectively.
