Properly working gutters and downpipes are an important part of your property's weather proofing and drainage systems. Rainwater overflowing from blocked gutters or downpipes can cause serious damage to a building's structure and can also result in expensive repair bills. Gutters can be blocked by a variety of objects - including leaves, twigs, grass, earth, moss, stones, bird droppings and slipped tiles or slates. These objects end up in your gutters by way of wind, overhanging trees or nesting birds. To prevent or minimise damage to your property, your gutters should be cleaned as soon as possible after a blockage or overflow is noticed. Here are the reasons why regular gutter cleaning is essential...
Over time, your property's brickwork gradually becomes more and more porous and absorbs some of the rainwater rather than repel it. This needn't be a big problem if rainwater hits your house's brickwork directly as it falls from the sky - even after heavy rainfall the bricks would normally dry out before the rainwater penetrates to the house's inner walls - but a potentially serious problem could arise if rainwater cascades out of the gutters directly onto the building's walls. Quite simply, the brickwork cannot cope with such a high volume of water hitting it time and time again, and it absorbs more and more water over time.
