Aquamark customers often arrange gutter cleaning as part of a window cleaning appointment. Our experienced team will assess the height of the gutters and come up with a safe way to access them. Then, using state of the art equipment, we’ll clean the guttering thoroughly and ensure there are no obstructions.
Gutters are often neglected, partly since they’re inaccessible, but partly because we underestimate the effects of blocked or dirty gutters. If your roofline has not been cleaned lately, here are a few good reasons why you should book a cleaning appointment with Aquamark.
#1. Clean Gutters Improve Your Home’s Appearance
Gutters are part of the roofline – the various pieces that sit above the windows on a house. If you’re selling your home, or just maintaining its appearance, you will want to keep the roofline tidy.
Neat guttering gives your home a better look, since the guttering will be free of debris. Our cleaning services prevent the buildup of moss, grass and other unwanted greenery that are unsightly and scruffy.
#2. Cleaning Catches Splits and Cracks Early
Gutters and pipes are responsible for carrying water away from the roof, ensuring rainfall does not cause any problems. We sometimes fail to notice when guttering splits; sometimes, we simply can’t see the damage from the ground. Out of sight should not be out of mind, however; a cracked gutter over a flat roof could be a recipe for disaster if it goes unnoticed.
When Aquamark’s cleaners are attending to your guttering, they’ll have a bird’s eye view of the gutters – a view that most property owners never have. While they’re cleaning, they’ll make a mental note of any damage that could cause problems in future.
#3. A Clean Gutter Is A Safe Gutter
Many Aquamark customers get their gutters cleaned when the seasons change. There are some good reasons for this.
- Cleaning in spring helps to remove any litter that has been blown into the gutter area, and helps remove dirt that may have been loosened by winter winds.
- Cleaning after autumn is sensible, since the cleaners can remove dead leaves that naturally accululate.
- Cleaning before winter helps to ensure water can flow freely, lessening the likelihood that heavy ice accumulation will cause the guttering to collapse.
#4. Gutter Cleaning is More Affordable than Replacement
If you’re not confident cleaning high windows, don’t attempt to clean gutters either. There’s a certain risk in balancing at the top of a ladder, overreaching and using tools at a height. Why risk it?
Gutter cleaning is inexpensive, and it can be added to almost any window cleaning appointment for a nominal fee.
#5. Your Gutters Stay Clean
Once any debris has been removed, Aquamark washes all guttering and checks the flow of water. This is important to ensure that drainage pipes are free from any debris that may have been loosened as we carried out the clean. It also helps to prevent new build-ups.
