Spring Cleaning: Don’t forget your gutters!

Whilst we are all very good at taking part in the spring-cleaning hype this season, we often forget about the exterior of our homes. After the harsh winters and windy autumnal weather, our gutters are prone to blockages from old leaves and debris.

So it’s important that gutters are cleaned on a regular basis to prevent any structural and water damage to your home.

Addressing this problem early on can save you a lot more money in the long run, as it may be a costly project to replace the entire guttering system.

So it’s highly recommended to get your gutter cleaned at least once a year by a professional and the best time of the year to do this would be spring/summer when we have fewer chances of rainy weather (fingers crossed!)

You may think you can try cleaning your gutters yourself, however, there are specialist tools that are required, which you may not have in the home. Plus you don’t want to take the risk and hassle of trying to get yourself up on the roof, especially if you have no experience in this field!

Common signs of blocked gutters you need to look out for:

  • Obvious gutter blockage i.e. leaves, fallen debris
  • Overflowing water
  • Rotting on the fascia
  • Bending or bulged pipes
  • Plants growing from the gutter
