The gutters are a part of the home where we may think, ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ but they need a lot more love and attention than you may think. Our gutters are designed to catch water from the roof and drain it off and away from the house. However, if your gutters get clogged with debris and dirt, it makes this system almost impossible and can lead to some pretty pricey repairs.

Your gutter can get clogged by a many number of things, including leaves, dirt, twigs, mould, sprouting seeds and sometimes even bird, rodent, or insect nests! These are all quite common causes of blocked gutters and will mean that the gutters need a good clean. It is possible for you to clean your own gutters, but sometimes it can be quite a difficult task, especially if your home is more than one story high, and some homeowners simply prefer to hire a professional to do it.

If your gutters are left too long, they could lead to much bigger problems like damage to your roof, the wood fascia, walls, windows, doors, patios and foundations. If your gutters stay clogged for this long and it causes damage, it will result in a much heftier bill. That’s why it’s best to simply get your gutters cleaned at least once a year and prevent this build-up of debris.
