Gutter cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home. While it may be bottom of your list of things to do, a clogged gutter has the potential to devastate your home.

A gutter that is full of debris cannot fulfil its true purpose. The accumulation of dry leaves and debris prevents water from flowing down the gutter into the down spout, and this means that excess rain water pours out of the sides of the gutter and on to the side of the house. Generally, this necessitates expensive repair and painting to restore the appearance of your home.
Additionally, a clogged gutter may lead to a rusted gutter that requires replacement. The water trapped in the gutter could freeze in winter, forming ice dams that weigh down the gutter and cause damage to the gutter and the roof. Avoid these issues by ensuring that gutters are cleaned regularly.
Gutters become clogged because of the fallen leaves and other debris that accumulates on the roof of the house. This is washed into the gutter when it rains. Additionally, small animals such as squirrels and birds might decide to nest among the debris and leave their droppings in the gutter. The presence of organic matter and water leads to the formation of mould, and this contributes to the further clogging of the gutter as well.
Even as you clean the gutters you should examine their condition. If the gutter is coming loose, we’re able to re-fix this to the side of the roof. However, if the wear and tear has caused rusting or major damage, you should replace the gutter.
Older gutters made of iron are prone to rusting and should be replaced with uPVC, a rust-proof and durable alternative. This not only makes it easier to clean the gutter later on, but enhances the curb appeal of your home.
