Gutter Cleaning

Keeping on top of your gutter health is an essential part of home maintenance. Regular inspections, repairs and upkeep will ensure that your property is completely weathertight from the outside, preventing damage to the inside.

In this month’s blog at CleanCare Hygiene Limited looks at the importance of gutter cleaning. For more details, call us in Bradford on 01274 949 112.

Reduces Pests

Clogged gutters often attract nesting birds, rodents and bugs. These all carry germs and diseases. By removing leaves and debris, it will discourage birds and pests from making your gutters their home.

Extends Your Roof’s Lifespan

Another reason why gutter cleaning is so important is because it extends the lifespan of your roof. During the winter, a clogged gutter will trap ice, adding weight and stress to your roof.

Furthermore, your clogged gutter will not drain water as it should. So, when the water freezes, it will move your shingles apart, giving space for leaks. Having a well-maintained gutter helps water and ice flow from your roof, eliminating the excess weight and risk of pooling.

Boosts Kerb Appeal

Dirty and clogged gutters are an eyesore. Whether you are planning to sell your home or not, clean gutters can boost your kerb appeal and shows that your home is well-looked after.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

Cleaning your gutters are best done at the end of autumn or beginning of spring. If you last cleaned them over a year ago, you should do it almost immediately.

In the autumn, your gutters will quickly get dirty from falling leaves and twigs. Moreover, how often they need cleaning depends on where you live.

Stops Water Damage

When your gutter overflows, your exterior walls become damp. Over time, the water can soak into the foundations or through to your interior and cause damp patches.

This can also lead to health problems. Therefore, it is important you ensure your gutters are in the best condition.
