Ever considered using gutter cleaning services? In case you haven’t, then you should consider adding it to your list. During the year your gutter can accumulate debris from surrounding trees and shrubs as well as dust. This build up has the potential to damage your gutter and roof. However, it is hard to know whether your gutters are clogged or not. This is because most people find it difficult and dangerous to access their home’s gutters using a ladder. This is where gutter cleaning services come in. If you do not regularly maintain your gutters through gutter cleaning, it could lead to increased home repair costs. Gutter Trash is a professional business which offers top notch gutter cleaning services.  We are trained and experienced, fully insured and able to expertly clean your gutters.



How often should you clean your gutters?


How often you should clean your gutters depends on where you live and the number of trees you have in and around your yard. You can get an ideas of how often to clean your gutters by checking the number of leaves that fall inside your yard. Most homes require the gutter to be cleaned at least once every year. Some areas where there is a large number of trees nearby may need as many as 4 or 5 services each year in order to keep the gutters cleared of debris. If you only wish to have your gutters cleaned once each year, at the end of Spring you could call a gutter cleaning service to remove leaves and twigs that have filled up your gutter and thus be prepared for the impending storm season. If further services are warranted/required through the year, they can be arranged as required. 


Is there any benefit in using gutter guard?


There are several different types of gutter guard which can vary greatly in quality, durability and effectiveness. Gutter guard is not designed to end the need for gutter cleaning services, but rather to minimise the amount of debris in the gutters and ensure that the downpipes do not become blocked. Gutters with gutter guard fitted will still need regular gutter servicing. This is in part due to the build up which accumulates over the gutter guard, which in and of itself reduces the effectiveness of the gutter guard and may damage the gutter guard or greatly reduce its useful lifespan. Some of the accumulated debris on top of the gutter may be small enough to fall through the mesh and into the gutters. Even the bigger debris will in time break down and fall through the gutter guard and into the gutter. Regular servicing will clear the build up of debris which has fallen into the gutter as well as what is sitting on top of the gutter guard. This helps to prolong the lifespan of both your gutter and the gutter guard, reducing the need for repairs and replacement. 


Benefits of cleaning gutters

  • Most house roofs have roof valleys where two faces of the roof surface meet. These valleys, as with gutters, can accumulate debris and become blocked. A valley which becomes blocked could cause a leaking roof which can damage the interior of your home. However, as a part of a regular gutter cleaning service with Gutter Trash, the valleys are cleared as well as the gutters. Regular gutter cleaning will help to ensure that rainwater flows down the valleys, through the gutters and into the downpipes so that it doesn’t damage your roof or foundation.
  • When your gutters accumulate debris, they could become prone to rodents and pests, including ants and cockroaches. However, having a clean gutter will help to prevent attracting rodents and pests, eliminating the risk of them causing damage to your roof or walls and to keep rodents and other pests from accessing your home.
  • Cleaning gutters will prevent the risk of water overflowing which could ruin your landscaping or affecting your house foundations.
  • Mould, mildew and moss tend to grow in clogged gutters. Cleaning gutters will ensure your home maintains its aesthetic beauty from the outside and remove the health issues associated with mildew and mould.
  • Also, cleaning gutters will prevent the risk of the roof leaking which can extend the lifespan of your roof and protect the inside of the house from water damage. This will save you the cost of repairing or replacing a damaged roof and costly damage to the interior of your home.


Why should you choose a gutter cleaning service?
