Why is gutter cleaning necessary?

You invite trouble when you neglect to maintain your gutter system since blocked gutters are worse than having none at all – even gutters with gutter protection installed require routine cleaning.

Rainwater caught in clogged gutters or downpipes has nowhere else to go but over the gutter’s edge, which can cause structural damage inside your property that may require expensive repairs.

Our primary method:

At Essential Waterblasting, we have tried every method imaginable to clean gutters, and what we discovered is that getting up and doing it by hand and then flushing the remaining debris down works best.

Through trial and error, we have found that gutter vacuums don’t perform a decent job, so our primary method is good old-fashioned thorough hand cleaning.

Preventing Water Damage

Cleaning your gutters is crucial for preventing water damage to your house. Clogged gutters can cause water to overflow, leading to rotten cladding, roof leaks, foundation problems, and basement flooding.

Regular gutter cleaning ensures that rainwater is properly directed away from your house, protecting its structural integrity.

Maintaining Roof Longevity

Clean gutters help preserve the lifespan of your roof. When water cannot properly drain off the roof due to clogs, it can cause rotting, deterioration of shingles, and damage to the underlying structure. Cleaning the gutters ensures that water flows freely, minimising the risk of roof-related issues.

Improving Gutter Lifespan

When gutters are clogged, they are subjected to additional weight and stress from the accumulated debris and water. Over time, this can cause sagging, rusting, and damage to the gutters. By cleaning them regularly, you extend their lifespan, saving you the expense of premature gutter replacement.

Preventing Fascia Damage

Fascia boards, which support the gutters, are susceptible to damage when gutters are clogged and overflowing. The excess weight and constant exposure to moisture can cause fascia boards to rot, warp, or deteriorate. By keeping your gutters clean, you protect the integrity of the fascia and avoid costly repairs.

Preserving Siding & Exterior Walls

Overflowing gutters can cause water to run down the sides of your house, leading to staining, rotting, or deterioration of the siding and exterior walls. Cleaning your gutters ensures that water is properly directed away from the walls, preserving their appearance and structural integrity.

Avoid Foundation Problems

Excessive water pooling around the foundation due to clogged gutters can lead to foundation problems such as cracks, shifting, or settling. This can compromise the stability and safety of your house. Regular gutter cleaning prevents water from accumulating near the foundation, reducing the risk of foundation damage.
