Five Reasons Why The Summer Is A Great Time To Clean
Your Business’ Gutters
With the warmer weather comes thoughts of sun, sand, sea and maybe even an ice cream or two. The beautifully sunny dry days in the summer also present a perfect opportunity for you to get in a professional gutter cleaning company to give your business’ gutters the once over before the wind and rain arrives in the Autumn. Here’s five reasons why the summer is a great time to clean your business’ gutters.
Warm & Dry Weather
It goes without saying that the dry weather makes inspecting your gutters that much easier as all the dirt and debris should have dried out, making the amount of it easier to see and subsequently clear out. The warmer weather also makes it easier and safer for our professional gutter maintenance technicians to access the building’s gutters.
Easier to check for damp
Although the British summertime isn’t always warm and dry, if you find damp patches or cracked walls in the building, it could be a sign that your gutters could be in need of some attention. Damp can be caused by leaking gutters, and leaks can occur for a number of reasons, from blockages to broken downpipes.
Good Preparation For Autumn & Winter
Getting your gutters cleaned in the Autumn and Winter is a bit like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. There’s a good chance that your gutters are already filled with silt, debris, twigs and leaves from last winter, so they’re already likely to be blocked and overflowing. The last thing you need or want is for that to get worse this Autumn when leaves start falling off the trees. That’s why we advise that you get your gutters cleared in the summer, to remove debris from last winter and prepare them for the coming months.
Whilst the sun is great news when it comes to undertaking the gutter maintenance itself, it can be bad news for roofs and guttering. UV rays can damage certain aspects of your roof system, particularly flat roofs, and that could mean expensive repairs further down the line if it’s not checked sooner rather than later.
Get Booked In Sooner
People usually start thinking about their gutters when they notice it’s leaking, which of course normally happens when we get large amounts of rain. So, with guttering and roofs likely to be at the back of many people’s minds when it’s warm and sunny outside, there’s a possibility that they may not think of booking in for some summer gutter maintenance - unless they’ve read this blog of course! Why not take advantage of other businesses resting on their laurels and get booked in with us today.
These are just five reasons why you should consider undertaking some routine gutter maintenance in the summer months, but there are undoubtedly more that we haven’t mentioned here.
