The importance of school gutter cleaning

The countdown to the Christmas holidays is officially on for school children (and parents alike) across the nation.

Not only does the festive break mark two weeks (or more) of silent school grounds; it also allows caretakers or facilities managers to organise much-needed school gutter cleaning for the year ahead.

As you look to plan the school’s routine maintenance for the year ahead (especially in the spring term), then it’s likely that school gutter cleaning will be on your agenda. And, if you haven’t been as on-the-ball with the upkeep of the school’s guttering system this year, don’t worry. Just this once, we’ll let it slide. After all, the pandemic dealt us quite the curveball!

Why is school gutter cleaning so important?

As we’ve mentioned in the past, there are a number of reasons as to why employing the services of a professional gutter cleaning service is so crucial for the everyday maintenance of your establishment. These are not limited to, but include:

Within the education sector, we understand that budgets are becoming tighter, year-on-year. That’s why we would recommend conducting routine school gutter cleaning and maintenance. By adopting a preventative approach, you will be helping to keep more costly issues – such as damp, water damage, or (worst case scenario) roof issues – at bay.

Make school gutter cleaning your priority in 2021!

Regular gutter cleaning can help maintain a school’s reputation. Once gutter issues take hold, they are not hidden, and can be easily spotted by parents on the playground. Is not keeping up with gutter cleaning really worth the risk of the school’s good name?

We may be biased, but we do believe that employing the help of a professional gutter maintenance company (like UK Gutters) is truly one of the best New Year’s resolutions you can make! December and January are the perfect months to start working towards new and good habits that can improve the longevity of the school’s existing gutter system, while helping keep costs down throughout the year.
