Regular downpipe, roof, and gutter cleaning is essential for clearing away leaves, branches, dirt, and debris, however many people put it off or believe that it is unnecessary. Whilst gutters often get forgotten about, they play an important role in protecting your home.
Neglected gutters can cause significant damage, not only to your roof plumbing, but also to your roof, ceiling, exterior walls and fittings, and your foundations. This is because gutters are part of your stormwater system, and their role is to ensure that water leaves your roof without causing any damage.
In addition, regular roof and gutter cleaning reduces the risk of fire, prolongs the lifespan of your roof plumbing system, and makes your property look much neater. Blocked gutters can also lead to pools of stagnant water forming around your property, which can attract mosquitoes and other pests to your home.
The longer that leaves and other debris are left in gutters, the less efficient your stormwater system will be. Heavy rainfall and a neglected gutter can lead to serious leaks and flooding, causing structural damage to your property. Investing a little money in downpipe, roof and gutter cleaning now can save you a lot of money in the long term.
How often you need to clean your gutters depends on how many trees there are around your house or shed. We recommend annual cleaning at a minimum, however, some properties require quarterly cleaning. Our expert plumbers can advise you of how often your gutters should be cleaned.
