Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important In Western Suburbs Sydney
By- admin on August 01, 2018
A clogged gutter system can result into costly damages in various parts of the house including the roof and the entire foundation. If you are looking for high-quality gutter cleaning in Western Suburbs Sydney, you need to rely on professional gutter cleaning experts for the best possible outcome.
Gutter cleaning is one of the most important aspects of property maintenance, but it often remains at the bottom of the priority list because it is not an easy thing to do on your own. But professional gutter cleaning companies like Flash Property Maintenance can make gutter cleaning an easy and hassle-free experience for you.
What Can Happen
Flash Property Maintenance’s team of highly experienced gutter cleaners have mapped the most common areas of damage caused by clogged gutters.
Water in the Basement
A clogged gutter system tends to force rainwater over the edges of the gutter before it falls down the sides of the house. Slightest foundation cracks in your property then allows the water to reach the basement.
If clogged gutters are forcing rainwater to enter your basement, there’s an increased risk for mold, which grows rapidly in moist and humid conditions. Mold growth can cause respiratory problems and other health problems.
Window, Door, and Fascia Board Rot
If you have a clogged overflowing gutter then you are also at risk for damage and rot around windows, doors, and fascia board.
The regular overflow of water from clogged gutter pools around the foundation of your property makes it vulnerable to seepage and also leads to development of cracks.
Overflowing water from your clogged gutter system erodes the soil, mulch and the plants in your yard or garden.
Water from clogged gutter expands the soil under concrete. This expansion causes concrete heaving and cracks in both the drives and sideways.
Stagnant water often becomes the breeding places of mosquitoes and other bugs which can be detrimental to your health.
When to Clean
There are various cleaning routines – twice a year, quarterly or once year. The frequency of cleaning actually depends on the foliage in your property and the weather conditions. If your property has a number of trees, you should clean your gutters more often.
The most crucial time for cleaning is the end of autumn and early winter and you need to make sure that the gutter is clear from falling leaves, twigs and seedlings in order to prevent icy clogs during winters.
