Thomas from Gutter-Vac will use unique equipment to easily remove leaves, mud, sludge, dirt and debris from your gutters, roof and downpipes, preventing costly and dangerous problems. All gutter debris is removed.
Gutters are cleverly designed to gather any water that lands on your roof and systematically distribute it away from your home, protecting it from water damage. If you don’t maintain them properly, over the years gutter build up can cause irreparable damage to even top-of-the-line gutter systems. Thankfully, Gutter-Vac’s unique equipment easily removes leaves, mud, sludge, dirt and debris from gutters, roofs and drain spouts preventing costly, dangerous problems.
When gutters overflow, the water can flow under the eaves causing water damage to walls, ceilings, décor, carpets and electrical items. Overflow water can also flow to the foundations of the property, which can be extremely dangerous. Call Gutter-Vac to establish a regular gutter cleaning schedule which will prevent overflowing gutters and blocked downpipes.
Gutters filled with leaves also provide fuel for fires. Make sure your gutters, roof and downpipes are clear of leaves with regular gutter cleaning. You can also ask Thomas about the supply and installation of Gutter-Flow gutter guard, made with Fire Retardant (V-0 Fire Rated).
Cleaning your gutters regularly can help prevent gutter rust. Without proper cleaning, debris left in gutters breaks down and forms a destructive sludge. Over time, this sludge causes the formation of rust, degrading gutters and causing the need for expensive gutter replacement.
Gutter cleaning is essential for pest control. Rotting gutter debris provides a perfect breeding environment for mice, snakes, spiders, cockroaches, beetles and mosquitoes - all of which spread disease. Some of the problems and diseases associated with these vermin include salmonella, staphylococcus, streptococcus, polio, allergies and encephalitis.
Many property owners spray in and around their property for pests, but leave the food source and breeding environment in their gutters. Without treating the source, it is only a matter of time before the vermin reinfest your property.
It might seem like a good idea to grab a ladder and a bucket and clean the gutters yourself. Don’t!
