Your gutters are choked with dirt and leaves and that cricket ball from the backyard bash on Christmas day. But cleaning the gutters is the last thing you want to do this weekend.
SA Gutter Gard is here to help. We provide professional gutter cleaning services across Adelaide, the Hills, Fleurieu and Barossa ensuring your gutters are spotlessly clean.
Whether it’s winter or summer, it’s important to ensure your gutters are clean and clear for a number of reasons.
When the rain comes, blocked gutters can mean the only place the water can escape is over the edges of your gutters – or into your roof space. This can not only damage ceilings and walls, but also cause major electrical and fire hazards should water meet wires!
A build-up of leaf litter and debris can also create a significant fire hazard in the summer months, creating an accumulation of kindling around the perimeter of your home, ready to combust with a stray ember or spark.
If you collect rainwater for use in your home, clean gutters means cleaner water. And more of it. Gutters that are clogged with debris from plants or animals can restrict the flow of water into your tanks and expose that water to a variety of contaminants. Where rainwater is required for human consumption, regular gutter cleaning becomes even more important.
Gutters filled with debris can impede water flow, which means water can pool in the bottom of gutters for extended periods. Not only does this provide the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos, but prolonged exposure to water can prematurely rust and corrode you gutters. Regular cleaning of your gutters will ensure they dry quickly after a rainfall, reducing contact with water to keep them in good condition for longer.
