There are a few factors you should consider when deciding on the frequency of cleaning your gutters.
- Are there a lot of trees near the house or in the neighbours yard that blows over to you?
- If you have trees are they deciduos or have debris falling all year round?
- Are your gutters hung correctly to allow the flow of water to the down pipe? You would be surprised at how many gutters we see that hold water and the sludge and debris along with it.
- Are you in shade for most of winter, therefore it is always damp? Moss loves to grow in conditions like these.
Most properties get away with an annual gutter clean. When some of these conditions above are present, it might require a gutter clean more frequently.
The picture above is a six monthly clean. The trees in the area are gum trees and they leave their debris of sticks and leaves on the roof and gutter all year round.
