How routine gutter maintenance can protect your property from spring storms

As Storm Gareth sweeps across the nation, it may be the right time to consider completing gutter maintenance to avoid small problems escalating into bigger issues.

With the spring equinox taking place next week, we can begin to look forward to lighter evenings and (hopefully!) some brighter weather. Unfortunately, with big storms forecast for the spring, your commercial or industrial property is at risk of being severely damaged if you do not invest in routine gutter maintenance.

Thankfully, we’re here to provide you with the information you need to extend the lifespan of your property’s guttering.

Safe gutter maintenance

With strong winds forecast this spring, it is always best to enlist the help of professionals to carry out your gutter maintenance to avoid any accidents that may occur. This way, any problems with your gutters will be able to be identified quickly and easily.

Enlisting the help of professionals to carry out your gutter maintenance also makes it easier to spot any clogs in your gutters that could develop into serious problems. A professional will be able to identify these problems and fix them before they escalate.

Gutter cleaning

The best way to perform gutter maintenance is by enlisting professional help to carry out regular gutter cleaning. Whether you have a commercial or industrial property, gutter cleaning will get rid of any debris, which means that your gutters can be inspected and, if necessary, fixed easily.

Gutter cleaning professionals will remove large pieces of debris first and then rinse the gutters of any moss or mould. By starting at the downspout and working away from it, no additional debris will be pushed in, allowing your guttering to be cleaned more efficiently.

By completing routine gutter cleaning, you can extend the lifespan of your property as well as preventing a build-up of debris by cutting out small problems before they escalate further, saving you money in the long term.

De-clog your downspout

Clogs are most likely to occur where the downspout connects to the gutter. A professional will be able to remove the elbow joint and inspect the downspout, removing clogs from the bottom up. By attempting to de-clog your downspout yourself, you run the risk of pushing debris further down the downspout, which can cause more damage to your property. Therefore, we recommend enlisting the help of a gutter specialist to carry out your gutter maintenance.

To summarise…

You can make sure you get a headstart on Storm Gareth or any other storm this spring by enlisting the help of a professional to carry out routine gutter maintenance and gutter cleaning.
