How do I know when my gutters need cleaning?

It is well known that it is important to keep gutters clean to make sure they continue to work as they should, allowing them to easily drain off excess water that can cause great damage to your roofing. However, not everyone is aware of the signs to look for which let you know if your gutters need cleaning. Here we will outline some of the obvious and less obvious signs that show your gutters are in need of our professional cleaning services.

If you can see moss, debris or any other object or item in your guttering, even from ground level, then cleaning is needed to get rid of any blockages that could impede water flow. Further to this, if you notice that the rainwater coming out of your gutter is a trickle rather than a consistent flow, then it’s likely that there is a blockage in the pipes.

In addition to these obvious signs, there are other things to look out for that you might not immediately associate with a need to clean your gutters. If you’ve noticed that there is damp or mildew on your interior walls, or if your exterior walls seem to feature salty deposits, it would be beneficial to check if these types of damage are occurring near drainage systems and gutters. Although these kinds of problems can be cause by a number of different factors, over the years we have seen a number of instances in which these problems have developed as a result of blocked or dirty gutters.
