It is amazing what can gather in an un-maintained gutter over time. Organic matter, leaves and general debris from roofs can gather causing gutters to become blocked and to leak and overflow. The weight of the debris that gathers in gutters can be quite significant and can cause substantial damage to gutters and pipes. Seeds from animal droppings can begin to grow causing further blockages and even more damage. The damage that can be prevented by regular gutter cleaning and basic gutter maintenance includes but is not limited to:
- Avoiding gutters that overflow and leak which in turn causes water damage to building exteriors and encourages the growth of pollutants such as algae on exterior walls.
- Preventing broken and damaged gutters and pipes which then require repairing or replacing.
- Preventing issues with damp and mould growth within the building itself.
