It is essential to maintain the guttering of your premises to protect your building from damp, mould and to prolong the lifespan of your gutters. Poorly maintained guttering can lead to costly repairs.
Your property’s guttering is designed to catch rainwater running off the roof and disperse it into the drainage system around the building. Over time gutters naturally accumulate dirt and debris such as leaves and twigs, as well as layers of moss which grow in damp conditions. If left unchecked, this combination of materials can fill the guttering, causing it to overflow, especially if the build-up has caused blocked downpipes, which prevents the rainwater from draining away.
