Don’t Ignore the Importance of Gutter Maintenance
Ignoring gutter cleaning can lead to much bigger and more expensive problems, with anything from blocked gutters requiring repair work, to major roof, façade or internal ceiling and walls damage requiring much more costly remedials. Gutters are designed to collect and disperse water away from the roof and down to the sewer system, and blocked, full, or damaged gutters are unable to carry out this function. Water can gather in blocked drains, especially in heavy rainfall, and either cause mould build-up or worse, lead to leaks in the roof as the water sits heavily above.
Moss and leaves are the most common problems as they are inevitable to fall and gather year-round in gutters and on roof areas, not only do they cause water to gather and block the pipes, but they can also lead to breakages to the flashings and linings themselves as the debris continues to grow and gather when left unattended.
Additionally, there are problems posed by local wildlife, who when the temperature turns colder may seek shelter in a full gutter, and so there could be unwanted visits from rats, mice, hedgehogs, and birds who are looking for a place with plenty of cover and warmth.
There are also potential safety hazards that can present themselves when gutters are not correctly maintained. If they are unable to filter water correctly down to the sewers, dirty water can gather on the ground or roof areas and cause slips, trips and falls dangers. These dangers can lead to injuries, legal action and worst-case scenario, fatalities.
Avoid these safety concerns by arranging for our expert fabric maintenance team to attend your building and complete gutter clean and maintenance works.
