Having your gutters cleaned may not seem high on the list when it comes to property maintenance priorities, but regular upkeep is essential. Your home’s guttering system does more than just channel rainwater away, which is why our cleaning professionals maintain that you should consider having you gutters cleaned at least twice a year.

Our gutter cleaners in Essex share the top benefits of having your gutters cleaned and cleared regularly…  


1) Prevent damage & costly repairs

It’s in your best interest to keep gutters clean and free from debris. A neglected guttering system could result in very expensive repair fees to the structure of your building. Keeping your guttering system clean prevents damage to your home – which often occurs when gutters are blocked with leaves and debris which cause water overflow and potential rotting of soffits, fascias, windows, ceilings and walls.

As if this isn’t enough, the actual gutters themselves can suffer damage when not regularly cleaned as an excess of water and debris could cause the entire guttering to completely pull away and fall off of your house – resulting in a necessary replacement.


2) Reduce potential pest problems

Many Insects, bugs and rodents thrive in moisture-filled, damp environments. A clogged up rainwater-filled gutter is a perfect spot for attracting rats, termites and other pests near your home. Professional gutter cleaning will eliminate the potential of a rodent or insect outbreak.


3) Improve your property’s appearance

The appearance of your home might not be the most important reason for cleaning gutters, but it is the most obvious. Debris that builds up in the gutters can often be seen from the front of a home, especially debris that collects on the ground. The overflowing rainwater will also stain the front of a property over time. 

Professional gutter cleaning

When it comes to cleaning your gutters, whether it is a commercial or residential property, we always recommend contracting professional gutter cleaners. Very few property owners possess either the right tools or the right skills for a gutter cleaning task. Thinking that it is a simple case of climbing a ladder and emptying the debris into a black sack is where the first problems usually lie. Not only does this pose a risk for anyone without professional experience, but incorrect handling of guttering can also cause undue weight to cause more damage, resulting in – you guessed it – more costly repairs.
