Gutters play a vital role in all buildings, particularly considering the high levels of rainfall in England. When left unattended, gutters can become blocked by leaves, sticks, and other debris. This can impede their ability to carry water to your drains, leading to potentially serious issues with overflowing water. On a commercial building, this can make rented units uninhabitable at worst, necessitating costly repairs.

The Importance of Commercial Gutter Cleaning

Here are just some of the issues that can occur on commercial properties thanks to a blocked or poorly maintained gutter system:

  • Damaging Foundations: If water overflows from gutters it can pool at the base of a commercial property, rather than drain away. This can cause wear to the foundations of a building, potentially requiring costly repairs. In buildings with a basement, such as a block of flats, this can also cause issues within the building, such as cracks in walls  or dampness. In the worst cases, it can even cause flooding
  • Damaging Roofs and Fascias: Water leaking over the sides of gutters can cause damage to the roofs of commercial buildings, leaking through and causing mould growth or dampness. In extreme cases this can lead to sections of a roof collapsing, making them uninhabitable without expensive repairs. Wooden fascias can also be rotted by consistent water damage, requiring replacement.
  • Mould on Walls: Leaking or overflowing water can run down the external walls of a property, leading to mould growth. While external mould growth is unsightly, internal mould growth can be a potential health concern for any residents within the building.
  • Insect Hives: A blocked drainpipe can be the perfect breeding ground for insects, who thrive in dark, damp spaces. This can cause issues within outside spaces, particularly if animals like wasps establish a hive.

How Often Should You Have Your Commercial Gutters Cleaned?

For most properties, an annual gutter cleaning is generally sufficient to keep things running smoothly. However, the frequency may vary depending on your specific circumstances. For instance, if your property is surrounded by trees that shed leaves, you may need to consider more frequent cleanings. A good rule of thumb is to schedule a thorough gutter cleaning once the autumn leaves have fallen. This ensures that your gutters are prepared to handle winter rains and spring thaws without issue. By proactively maintaining your gutters, you’re not just preserving the aesthetics of your property; you’re also safeguarding its structural integrity. So don’t wait for a small issue to become a major problem.

What Is Commercial Gutter Cleaning?

There are a series of methods to clean commercial gutters, depending on the scale of issues and the height of the guttering. Cleaning gutters is made up of two processes, removing all debris from the gutter, and flushing through the downpipe. It’s important that any gutter cleaner covers both of these, as sticks and leaves can form blocks within a downpipe, leading to water backing up and overflowing. Different cleaning companies will use different methods to reach gutters, from extendable ladders to high-pressure hoses that can be used at ground level. While cleaning your gutters you should also look to have them checked, as there may be damage to them that isn’t visible from the ground, such as cracks or loose connections. You may also have gutter screens, sometimes called gutter covers, which will also need to be cleaned.
