Gutter & Downpipe Clearance
Why Get Your Gutters Professionally Cleared?
Gutter clearing is an important part of maintaining the condition of your property both externally and internally. A blocked or leaking gutter will potentially allow rainwater to penetrate into the external brickwork. If this is allowed to occur over an extended period of time, the build-up of moisture in the walls could cause serious damp issues which could be very costly to rectify. However, if the gutters are checked and cleared regularly, this preventative action may save you the cost of expensive remedial work.
The build-up of leaves, moss and debris can often be hidden from view. A blocked guttering system is sometimes only noticed in very heavy rain when it leaks profusely. Many homeowners are quite rightly cautious about clearing their own gutters using ladders due to the considerable health and safety risk. Furthermore, many homeowners do not have the equipment required to unblock downpipes (which are often the cause of faulty drainage).
The Gutter Cleaning People therefore solve this problem for you by undertaking a complete gutter check and clearing service on your behalf. This gives you peace of mind that your guttering system is functioning properly and protecting your home from damage.
We use both a ladder-based system for accessing gutters whereby we can remove the debris by hand, and also a gutter vacuum system whereby we can raise a long vacuum pole up to the guttering level and vacuum the debris down to the ground.
In the areas that we can access using ladders we will take photos of the cleared guttering for you so you can see the work has been carried out correctly. Furthermore, this work is covered by a three-month guarantee so in the unlikely event any areas of guttering become blocked up again within three months we will come back and re-clear it for you free of charge.
Our gutter clearance service includes the following:
1) A full visual assessment of the guttering to clarify the extent of debris in the guttering.
2) A flow test assessment, where required, to check for blockages in downpipes.
3) Removal of any debris that is present from both the guttering and the top of the downpipes.
4) A full inspection of the guttering to ascertain any repair work required.
Please Note: Our clearance service does not include external cleaning of the guttering and fascia, or any substantial gutter or downpipe repair work If substantial repair work is required the technician will provide a free no obligation quote on the day.
