Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important?

Painting and decorating is a great way to improve the look of your home and update your home. But it is also important to keep your home safe from water damage that could affect the paintwork or even the walls. We look at other home maintenance jobs that are important like gutter cleaning.

Rain gutters have a very important purpose, to direct rainwater away from your walls. Rainwater that continuously runs down the wall of a house can cause water damage and dampness in the home. If they are full or blocked, rainwater will spill over and cause damage to your home or if there is a leak, that will result in water soaking into the walls.

Maintaining safe, debris-free gutters is in your best interests. This keeps your home safe and saves you money on maintenance. However, it’s all too tempting to let Gutter Cleaning fall to the bottom of your to-do list. It’s not everyone’s favourite work, and it can be hazardous and challenging. We agree with Matt at Truclean Plus Ltd, who is highly recommended for gutter cleaning in Manchester that your gutters should be inspected every six months to a year.

How do you clean gutters?

There are several ways to clean gutters from a leaf blower to clean them by hand with a ladder. Jarvis Window Cleaners in Surrey use the popular gutter vacuum system because it is safe and efficient. This power machine can suck any debris and unblock any gutters, even ones that are hard to reach. This method of cleaning is quicker, as a result, saving you money. 

Using a camera with the gutter vacuum system we can clearly check and inspect the rain gutters as we clean. If you have your gutters cleaned once a year, it makes no difference when you have them cleaned because they’ll never be left unattended long enough to become fully blocked. Annual cleaning eliminates debris build-up, which can escalate to blockages, broken gutters, and penetrating damp, both of which are expensive to repair. 


Many companies will use a ladder and clean the gutters by hand, this is preferred by many customers as long as it is carried out safely and by a professional. PM Window Cleaning in Corby have been cleaning gutters this way with great results as you can see from their website and Facebook page.
