Gutter cleaning is an essential part of maintaining your property. A blockage in your gutter or downpipe, even partial, can actually cause the gutter to overflow, potentially leading to water running down the outside of the wall of your property. This can cause damp inside the property, mould and even structural problems if left long enough.
It is recommended that gutters are checked and cleaned of debris at least once per year, after the autumn leaves have fallen. This is the time when they are most likely to become blocked, when left the leaves decompose and builds up a silt which without enough rainfall can become stuck in the gutter, birds can drop seeds through various means and growth can start.
