The importance of gutter cleaning and maintenance
Gutters are an integral part of your home and equally as important as installing your brand new driveway. If you really want that polished and elegant look to the exterior of your property, it is crucial that you know the basics when it comes to cleaning and maintaining your gutters, especially if you’re looking to make a house a home.
When neglected, gutters can turn from a necessity to a nightmare in the blink of an eye. Because they are out of sight and out of mind, they often become clogged with leaves, sticks and other debris; causing a leaky roof or damage to the interior and exterior of your home. This blockage makes a nice home for pests, rodents, mould and bee infestations.
In simple terms, blocked gutters are a like bomb of nasties waiting to go off above your head at any moment.
Gutters should be cleaned at least two-four times a year, particularly during autumn when the leaves start falling down and most critically if your home is surrounded by a large quantity of trees. All of these factors make it more likely for your gutter to become dangerously blocked.

During a cleaning, a professional will remove debris from the roof, gutters and downspouts whilst checking and repairing any loose gutter spikes.
