Have you forgotten about your gutters?

With April being one of the driest months on record according to the Met Office, it can be easy for people to forget about their gutters. Additionally, with recent reports predicting May to be just as dry, we felt this was a great time to discuss why you shouldn’t forget about your gutters this May and why you should keep up with gutter cleaning and gutter maintenance.

We’ve had a recent call out to a client who had neglected their gutters and tree saplings had begun taking root in the gutters. This along with leaves, plants and other forms of debris can be a real issue for gutters. Not only does this make the building seem unsightly, it can also cause an array of problems to your building. With an industrial building, you at least want the property to seem professional as it represents your business as a whole. Although your gutters can’t be seen easily, a tree growing from them definitely can. Additionally, aesthetics aside, if the gutters of your property are blocked the water will run down the side of the building, which can lead to mold – something that can be easily combated via regular gutter maintenance.

It’s important that your employees are in an environment that doesn’t hinder their health. Mold can cause numerous issues such as breathing problems and an increase in allergies for sensitive people, so be sure that your gutters are helping to protect your property from moisture.

Moreover, mold can cause real issues to the overall structure of a building; which would be costly to fix.

To prevent this from happening, you could consider clearing some of the branches that overhang near your gutters and keep on top of regular gutter cleaning. Gutter maintenance is essential as it helps to point out any small issues within the system before they become big issues. Many people may think out of sight out of mind, but if left and a problem does occur it may be too late to rectify. Be aware that even though the weather is dry, it doesn’t mean that your gutters don’t matter, you want to be prepared for any weather.
