How retail gutter cleaning can benefit your commercial property this summer

If the queues are forming outside your commercial or retail property, then the last thing you need is customers judging your gutters!

Now, we hate to be the bearers of bad news; but even if you don’t think your gutters need cleaning, then they probably do.

And, now that we seem to be entering a period of settled, good weather, now is the perfect time to set about organising any retail gutter cleaning or gutter maintenance your property missed out on during lockdown.

Retail gutter cleaning protects your interests

We’ve always maintained that “out of sight, out of mind” isn’t the attitude you should be taking when it comes to the condition of your property’s guttering.

As we covered in our last blog, gutters were the unspoken victim of lockdown life – especially if you had preventative gutter maintenance or retail gutter cleaning pencilled in. Now that operations have been able to resume, maintenance companies – like UK Gutters – are working hard to get back-on-track with our services. 

Your property’s guttering system is crucial when it comes to diverting water away from your property. If water isn’t able to flow away from your building effectively, then you risk damaging its structural integrity, as well as potentially putting your workforce at risk. Retail gutter cleaning, when paired with preventative gutter maintenance, can help extend the lifespan of your gutters while helping you avoid the cost of costly gutter repairs.

Why should you organise retail gutter cleaning?

During prolonged periods of warm weather, the debris that has accumulated in your gutter system (both organic and otherwise) dries out, making it easier to remove and clean. 

Here at UK Gutters, we carry out retail gutter cleaning in three stages. Firstly, we will clearly identify the requirements of the job – to make sure we are providing the most efficient service possible. Then, we will evaluate the health and safety considerations of the job. All of our staff have undergone comprehensive training, to ensure we work following the HSE Working at Height regulations, and HSG33. Finally, we will provide you with a service report, detailing what we have done.

Even now that social distancing measures are in place, communication remains at the heart of every job we complete. So, even though our teams may not be able to communicate with you face-to-face, we’ll still send you services reports of completed works, as well as risk assessments, digitally.

To summarise…

When it comes to organising retail gutter cleaning this summer, it’s worth keeping in mind that the autumn months aren’t that far away. By the end of September, gutters across the country will be full of fallen leaves and other detritus; meaning your system needs to be well-maintained now, to avoid the need for emergency gutter repairs later. Remember, small gutter issues can quickly escalate into more severe problems, which can be costly to rectify!

At UK Gutters, our retail gutter cleaning service is second to none. Our teams provide gutter maintenance for businesses large and small. For more information, give us a call on 0800 046 1376, or email us at info@ukgutters.co.uk.
