Commercial gutter cleaning: Know the warning signs of blocked gutters?

Failing to keep up with your commercial gutter cleaning puts your system at risk of blockages and obstructions.

And, not only are overflowing gutters a nuisance, but, if not dealt with correctly, they also pose a significant risk to your property, workforce, and existing gutter system.

And, while you should always refrain from getting up on a ladder and looking at your gutters (that’s what we’re for), some clear warning signs could indicate your system requires commercial gutter cleaning.

The cure (and the cause) of blocked gutters

Blocked gutters occur when obstructions lodge themselves within the casing of your gutters.

Blockages become more likely in the autumn months, when your system is placed under increased stress, with falling leaves and tumultuous autumn storms, if debris and excess water cannot flow away from your property effectively.

Thankfully there are some tell-tale signs that your guttering could be suffering from a blockage.

From rotted fascia boards, damaged or discoloured exterior walls, and even cracked pavements can all be an indication that your guttering system isn’t working efficiently. If left untreated for too long, water can even infiltrate the foundations of your property, which can cause severe problems for the structural integrity of your property.

Once you’ve noticed any of these warning signs, then employing a professional commercial gutter cleaning service is essential.
