The Dangers of Blocked Gutters
Leaving blocked uPVC gutters on your property can contribute to a series of issues, both minor and major:
- Foundation Damage: Water overflowing from your gutters can occur during periods of heavy rainfall, which can also lead to pooling water at the base of your building. This can wear away the foundations of your house over time, potentially causing collapses in serious cases.
- Insect Infestation: Blocked leaves and other debris like pine needles within a gutter can make an ideal breeding ground for several species of insect. Damp dark spaces such as a blocked drainpipe can therefore cause an uptick of insects within your garden, including wasp nests within the summer months.
- Leaking Roofs: Blocked house guttering can cause water to pool on the roof of your property. In time, this can cause damage to your roof, and leaking within your building. Water damage will be a serious issue, coming with a large price tag for repairs.
- Damage to Basement: Similar to foundation damage, pooling water at the base of your property can cause leaking within any basements on your home. This can lead to cracking and mould growth within your basement, and even to flooding in serious cases.
- Damage to Fascias: Wooden fascia boards can rot when exposed to overflowing water over time. Replacing them can be a costly and time-consuming process.
- Mould: Leaking or overflowing water can cause mould growth on both the inside and outside of your property. This can be both visually unappealing, and also potentially dangerous, depending on the type of mould growing within your living space.
Hiring a professional gutter cleaner can help stop the issues that can come with blocked gutters.
When Do Your Gutters Need to be Cleaned?
There are many signs around your residential guttering and property that indicate your gutters will need to be cleaned as soon as possible. If you notice water leaking over the sides of your gutters, or the growth of mould around your gutter then it may be time to get your gutters checked and cleaned. If you notice issues with dampness, mould, or damage inside of your house then having your gutters checked should be one of your first steps, as this may be contributing.
For normal gutter care, you should look to get your gutters cleaned once a year at a minimum, ensuring they function correctly and don’t pose any risks to your property. Late autumn is the best time to do a yearly cleaning, as this is the heaviest time of year for leaves and debris that can cause blockages.
How to Thoroughly Clean a Gutter
Gutter cleaning will consist of two parts, cleaning out all dirt and debris from the gutters, before clearing within the downpipe. uPVC cleaning companies will help to ensure that your home guttering is fully operational, and that you are not at risk of the many issues that can be caused by clogged gutters. Depending on the size of your building and the best methods gutter cleaning may involve using a ladder to access your uPVC gutters, or a longer vacuum from ground level.
