What Contributes to Blocked Gutters?
Blocked gutters are caused by two key factors, both of which will be impacted by the strong coastally winds of Worthing and much of West Sussex. Leaves are the most common source of blockages, both those that have fallen directly from trees and those blown into your gutters by the wind. The other contributor is moss, which can be blown from roofs into gutters, causing further blockages.
In places with a high level of wind, such as Worthing and the surrounding areas, things like twigs and sticks can also be blown into the guttering, often becoming lodged within the downpipe. Gutters become blocked in a couple of ways, both by leaves and debris lodging within the gutter itself, or by blocking some or all of the downpipe. Both of these can lead to water overflowing or backing up.
The Dangers of Blocked Gutters
Blocked gutters pose serious risks to a property, potentially leading to costly damages if left unaddressed. Even in the short term, they can cause visual and structural issues.
- Issues Within a Roof: Blocked gutters can cause water to overflow onto a roof, potentially leading to serious issues. When water pools on a roof it can cause damp and mould growth within a property. While this already presents a serious issue, when left unaddressed it can cause partial roof collapse, which will come with a huge price tag to fix.
- Mould: Water running down the walls of a property can lead to the growth of mould both inside and outside. Mould will be visually unpleasant, particularly internally, but can also be a health risk in the case of black mould. Mould running down the wall from your gutters can be a telltale sign that it’s time to book a gutter cleaning.
- Damage to Foundations and Basements: Water that overflows from gutters can pool at the base of a property, causing damage to the foundations and in extreme cases requiring expensive repair work. Houses with basements can also encounter similar issues to roofs, with damage to walls and mould growing within them. Compared to the cost of a regular gutter cleaning, any foundational or structural damage to a property will cost considerably more.
- Insect Hives: The downpipe of a gutter can become blocked with twigs, leaves, and moss, creating a warm dark space that is the perfect breeding ground for insects, even offering a home to wasps in the summer. An insect infestation within your garden can render it unusable at times, and will need to be promptly dealt with.
If you believe your gutters are blocked, you should engage the services of a gutter cleaning company as soon as possible, ensuring they clean the gutters and downpipe. Keeping the exterior of your property clean will help to avoid the risks that blocked gutters pose.
