Water Ingress To A Warehouse in Grove Fixed By A Gutter Clean

A customer enquired about having their gutters cleaned in their warehouse in the Grove area. The gutters were quite full and had not been cleaned in a very long time. Consequently, they had water ingress in the warehouse due to the gutters being full of weeds, reeds and mud.

Once the debris was removed, we found the gutters to be mostly in good condition. There was some signs of surface rust starting to show in places. The gutter sludge can be corrosive and this will shorten the life time of the guttering if left.

This down pipe was blocked with mud to the first bend. As water could not access the down pipe it overflowed into the warehouse. This could be a disastrous outcome if you have items stored in the warehouse that could be destroyed from water damage.

Maintaining regular gutter cleaning will ensure the gutters have a longer life. It will also ensure that water will traverse where it should, in the gutters and down pipes.

Gutter Cleaning On Commercial Sites

The Gutter Vac Tasmania team works with a variety of commercial clients. We complete gutter cleans at hospitals, nursing homes, schools, childcare centres, council buildings and warehouses to name a few. Each site is different, access to buildings, height wise or location on the site is considered. Can we get our vehicles on site and close enough? We have 60 metres of hose on our vacuum units in order to reach most places. When customising our maintenance plans for these sites, we follow the OH&S standards to ensure that all personnel, our staff and the staff and visitors of the worksite, are in a safe environment. Staff are trained in workplace health and safety and are educated to work with each client’s specific policies and procedures.


We take safety extremely seriously. All on road team members have safety training and working at heights certification. Each team member have their own safety gear like harnesses and safety lines for working on all types of roofing. We use anchor plates on tin roofing and webbing straps on a tiled roof. Our technicians have the gear to work safely on the job site to complete all gutter cleaning and solar panel cleaning work. When cleaning any pits and drains on site, our technicians know to follow procedures so to not leave them open. Technicians will put out safety cones to notify foot traffic of any hazards. 

How we clean safely in different conditions

We have a ground workers system that we can use on rooves too steep to work safely on. If the roof is slightly wet or there is misty rain and the weather precludes us from working on the roof, we use this system to clean the gutters. We check our work by either using a ladder or our camera on our extension poles. This system can be very useful on some properties where a cherry picker is a solution for accessing high gutters. Instead of paying money to rent a cherry picker, we may be able to access these high gutters with our ground system, at a lessor cost and little disruption to the complex. We have gone as high as 10m on some properties. 


There are more considerations to working at heights than just being fully trained and having all the right safety equipment. You should ensure that the company you use is insured. We are fully insured with public liability and can work on unlimited heights. We have taken out an added insurance to cover this. It is prudent to ask any company what their height restraints are in their insurance covers. You may also like check their vehicles are insured as well. You can rest assured that we are fully insured in all aspects of our business. Being a  national franchise guarantees full compliance in this area.

Other Services

We offer a service to apply treatments to lichen covered areas such as roofs, walls, footpaths, etc. When using these cleaners, we ensure we use environmentally friendly and nontoxic products. This gives peace of mind that during our treatments and in the following days that any products used pose no risk to staff, customers, and the local area. You have to understand that the treatments are not a quick fix and it takes 6-12 months to work. Sometimes it may require more treatments if the area is heavy with lichen of black mould.

We can create a maintenance schedule for your property or even multiple properties. We will ensure all future cleans are scheduled in the period of your choice and there is no obligation at the time of the reminder. This is a free service that we offer to remind you when your gutters are due to be cleaned.

If we know you intend to have a maintenance program with us, our system notifies you of the clean slightly ahead of time so that we can schedule the gutter clean when it is due. All that our client has to do is reply by email or call us to confirm acceptance of the work. We will not go ahead with any work without prior approval. Each month we keep aside a number of slots for clients we know who require our services at that time. This ensures their needs are met and the right amount of time is allotted to each job.

Not a commercial client?…. Don’t worry!

We cater for residential work too. The system works the same for both types of work.

Gutter Clean Before And After Photos Are Much Appreciated

The whole experience was effortless on my part. Wonderful to be sent before and after photographs.

Herman, from Margate Tasmania

Our team at Gutter Vac Tasmania provide customers with before and after photos along with a report. It reports the condition of the gutters and states if there are any issues relating to the roof. This report specifies recommendations on frequency of gutter cleans. We strive to get these reports to customers within one to two business days after the gutter clean.

Our customers love reading these reports as it gives insight into what was done and what state their gutters were in. The report also generally involves customers within the whole process.

Do You Require A Gutter Clean Now That Autumn Has Finished?

Do you have Autumn trees near you?

Have you had your gutters cleaned yet?

Get ready for winter. Leaf like this will cause a whole lot of issues you do not want.

It will be a costly exercise if the gutters are left in this condition. On this particular site the down pipe blocked and caused water to run down the inside of the window below.

Gutters need cleaning even if they have gutter guard installed. If not, the debris will break down and fall through the holes. The material sitting on top will become a solid mass, not allowing the water to pass and will cause overflow issues.

We had to blow this leaf off the roof to clean it.

Gutter Cleaning

It left the site with a big mess. We cleaned the leaf off the path and out of the garden, leaving some to use as mulch around the bottom of the garden.

It is nice to have these big majestic trees around but when you live under them you need to have a maintenance schedule to clean the gutters and roof. As a result, your property may fill with leaves.

Gutter-Vac Tasmania can help you keep a maintenance schedule for your property. This can help to keep your property looking great by cleaning your roof and gutters. 

The Leaves in the Valley Need Attention Even When There is Gutter Guard

Do you have gutter guard in your gutters? You may think no cleaning is required.

However, this is not true. Your valleys still need to be cleaned as they can fill up and create blockages or water ingress. As you can see in the picture, this valley needs to be cleaned. If left, the leaves will break down and sit in the valley and broken down mater will fall through the gutter guard in the corner, causing the material to act like a damn and become a blocking point. 

Some gutters end up with debris sitting on top of the guard. This should be cleaned as it will break down may fall through the holes in the gutter guard. A build-up of this material will be the perfect environment for grass seeds to grow. The wind and birds carry the seed, grass grows and then you have blockages and overflow issues.

Gutter guard can be very helpful in maintaining blockage free gutters when used in conjunction with regular gutter cleaning. Weighing up the expense of gutter guard plus regular gutter cleaning as opposed to just more frequent gutter cleaning should always be considered. When your gutters are cleaned regularly, you could expect a longer lifespan.

You should consider how heavy the leaf and debris is and are you going to incur any blockage or overflow issues in between cleans? Another consideration is the type of debris. Will it fall through the holes of the gutter guard more readily?

We can help you work out a plan of action for your gutter cleaning maintenance. We provide free quotes and a scheduling plan for reminders of gutter cleaning. There is no obligation for these cleans, it is purely to help our customers stay on track.
