Accessing and cleaning gutters can be a dangerous task. An Ambulance member recently indicated that on many public holidays, when Ballarat home owners take the opportunity to clean around the building. They often get calls to handy man and women who have fallen off their ladder while trying to access the gutter or roof area. Using ladders seems like a simple task and in reality it is. Even so, when working from heights there is always going to be associated risks.
Accessing the gutters via the roof may increase maintenance
It may be problematic or even increase the amount of maintenance your roof will require if gutter cleaning is completed from the roof area. Just walking around on the roof helps to loosen nails, screws or even crack tiles. The cost of repairs to the roof could be substantial. At time there is no choice but to access the roof area which should be limited where possible.
Removing leaves and the like from gutter by hand is time consuming and often leaves much of the finer debris at the bottom of the gutter. This loose material may help to form a blockage in down pipes etc.
This is why we use equipment designed to clean the gutter from the ground. Our industrial vacuum most of the loose, large and fine material will be vacuumed out of the gutter. It doesn’t even matter if there is wet material or water in the gutter as we use a wet and dry vacuum.
Pressure washing the gutter
Once the gutter is vacuumed, we place our gutter cleaning pressure washer wand along the gutter to remove stubborn material. Being careful not over pressure the equipment and make a mess on your walls – underneath the gutters. Any muddy drops that do make there way onto the wall will be cleaned and washed off.
Once the pressure washing process is finished, we inspect the gutters at regular intervals to ensure a great job has been complete. In addition, if necessary we will then vacuum the gutters again.
