How to Spring Clean Your Gutters

With the weather getting warmer, and with more time being spent at home, more and more people are spending time getting outdoor DIY and maintenance done to help fill their time.

An important job that shouldn’t go ignored is the clearing out of your house’s gutters. Maintaining a clear gutter at all times of year is vital for avoiding problems associated with blocked gutters, issues that may lead to the need for a full gutter replacement.

We are experts when it comes to finlock gutter replacement and gutter maintenance. With many years of experience in the industry, we’ve compiled a list of a few reasons why it is very important to maintain a clean gutter, and why spring-time is a great time to for gutter cleaning.


Ensures Gutters are Fully Functioning

With spring, we often experience a lot of heavy rain, meaning your gutters will often be working overtime. Your house’s gutters are essential for keeping rain water away from your home, reducing the risk of leaks and even damp forming in your walls.

If they are clogged and require some serious gutter maintenance, they won’t be able to function properly, and could cause a multitude of issues caused by the standing water which is unable to flow away.

There’s a chance that after winter, your gutters will be blocked by debris, twigs and leaves, so spring is the best time to clear out your gutters. Should the damage lead to more serious issues, you may require our gutter replacement service.


Prevent Mould and Damp

If your gutters are not able to allow water to escape due to a build-up of debris, the standing water has nowhere to go and could absorb into the walls of your house.

Concrete finlock gutters already have a high risk of this, which is why we offer finlock gutter removal services, but the risk of mould forming and in some cases damp within your home can be increased if your gutter are not regularly cleaned out.


Avoid Pest Infestations Within Gutters

If your gutters do have this build-up of debris, it may not come as a surprise to you that this forms the perfect habitat for many creatures. Insects, birds and even larger pests such as mice could use your gutters to form their new home, which of course is not ideal and could increase the risk of them entering your home.

If you believe your gutters are forming the home of pests and believe you would benefit from having them replaced, take a look at our gutter removal services.
