Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year– once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early Autumn. There are however, a few factors that might make you reconsider. If you have pine trees growing above your house or if your house is close to trees, consider inspecting your gutters every 3 months. We also offer an inspection for £14.99 to see if the gutters are in need of cleaning. This then comes off the cost of gutter cleaning if required

NO, scaffolding is not required to clean the guttering in more than 99% cases. We generally work from ground level with our powerful vacuum, alternatively we can use very tall ladders if required

It’s best to close your windows and not have any clean washing out nearby. It’s also best to do such things as window cleaning and outdoor painting after the gutters have been cleaned. We do ask that any pet mess is cleared from the garden prior to out gutter cleaning

Absolutely we will. In fact, we normally try to leave the property cleaner than when we arrived. We can also take away the leaves if necessary.

Have your gutters been checked recently? If, like most people, you can’t remember, then right now might be time to get around to it.

Although they’re “out of sight and out of mind”  your gutters actually play a massive role in the structural integrity of your property, and keeping them clean is a fantastic way to avoid the potentially costly expense of gutter repairs and insurance claims.

Generally people don’t often think of the issues that clogged gutters can cause, but there are actually lots. When water is not able to properly flow away from your house, then damage can result in a number of different locations, right from the top (roofing) to the bottom (foundation). Our safe ground level gutter clearing system gives you peace of mind that your gutters are not hiding blockages where the eye cant see. We use a camera inspection system to ensure your gutters are in top top shape and ready for when the elements may have to throw at them

There are 6 main reasons to ensure your gutters get cleaned out

Roof Damage

When leaves, moss and other debris clog up your gutters to the point that water is actually flooding over, you can end up with issues with roof rot. This is one of the main reasons that it’s important to ensure your gutters remain clean.

Keep Out Pests

Gutters that are clogged can be appealing to a number of animals as an ideal nesting site. From birds to mosquitoes, a bed of damp leaves can be very attractive.

Damage to Fascia

Overflowing water can easily cause damage to this important element of your gutter system.

Overwatering Garden Beds

When your gutters are full of debris and the water overflows on to your flower beds, you can easily damage your plants’ health by drowning them. It is a known fact that overwatering them can be as harmful as not watering enough.

Overflowing water can pool along your home’s foundation, which then can end up freezing. This can cause it to expand and worse case scenario, generate cracks in your buildings foundation.

Damage to Brackets

Clogged gutters are generally holding too much weight, which can result in damage to the brackets meaning they come away from the wall resulting in structural damage
