Office View while Gutter Cleaning at Mandurama NSW

Gutter-Vac Central West NSW covers a wide area of the Central Western NSW. We headed out to Mandurama where we were able to enjoy the sunshine from our Roof Top View, the last time we visited this property there was snow on the mountain tops. We scheludled a number of jobs on this trip starting at Mandurama at the Hilton Homestead B&B and a couple of private residences. Making stops on our way back at Carcoar for a flue Clean and then Blayney to complete a number of PMP’s in the town ship.

All our Gutter-Vac technicians are trained at working at heights and have the latest safety gear to use, we are covered by all the right insurances.

When we arrive at each and every job the site is assessed to how the work will be carried out. Taking into consideration the roof structure and pitch, roofing material, also including the weather at the time. The Gutter-vac Team are able to either work from the roof or use a Ground Worker Kit to complete the Gutter Clean.

At Gutter-Vac Central West we also provide all our clients with before and after photos. These photos also include any broken structures or further repair work that is required to be carried out.

Have you had your Flue checked and cleaned recently?

During Autumn we start to think about lighting our wood heaters to keep us warm and cosy. But when was your Flue cleaned last? As this can all come to a quick halt if your flue hasn’t been cleaned and a fire starts in your flue as they can quickly spread throughout your roof space and quickly into the rest of your home.

If your chimney/flue is left uncleaned a substance called creosote builds up on the walls of the flue and around the flue cap, if it continues to build up and get heavy it prevents your fire from drawing air and venting through your flue which could cause the leak of smoke and dangerous carbon monoxide fumes into your home.

There are certain signs to look for to know your Flue needs Cleaning

  • Soot and creosote sometimes fall into your fireplace.
  • You burn unseasoned or inadequately seasoned wood, that takes a long time to burn, or doesn’t burn completely.
  • Thick and puffy black creosote is present inside the flue
  • Smoke accumulates in the house when you have a fire
  • You tend to keep the damper semi-open to slow the fire and keep it burning longer
  • If you burn treated wood/ pine or can smell wood odours coming from your fire when it is out.

How Often Should I get my Chimney/Flue cleaned?

This does depend on how often you use your fireplace, and the types of wood you have burnt over the season. It is recommended that you should inspect your flue every 12 months for the build-up of creosote and if you can see creosote building up, it’s time to have your fire cleaned.

The best time to have your flue cleaned is when you are not using the fire, so over Summer or the start of Autumn, it’s always good to remember to source good seasoned wood that has been allowed to dry naturally over 2 years and to burn a hot fire that allows a fire to breath.

Gutter-Vac Central West have been Cleaning flues in Orange, Bathurst, Molong this past couple of weeks and if you have your Flue cleaned at the same time as your Gutters you will get our special discounted price as we are already set up on your roof. In Bathurst this week we also replaced the fire bricks in the fire box for a client.

Can you see What’s Growing in Your Gutters?

Can you see What’s Growing in your Gutters?

Sometimes it is obvious your gutters need cleaning when you can see plants growing out or debris laying on your roof line.

But it’s not often we look up to admire our gutters and think when they where lasted cleaned, so yes you may not see what’s growing in your gutters.

A lot of people do think the wind cleans them out when its really windy and this is right to a certain degree, but gutters can also provide the perfect growing conditions, as leaves start the decaying process, the wind blows in some dust and birds drop off a bit of manure with few seeds and then a little bit of rain and some sunshine and yes you have the perfect growing conditions. Then this process continues to happen over the coming months and even years.

When you use Gutter-Vac the professional Gutter cleaning, we take before and after photos and remove all types of plant life from your gutters and your roof line.

Our Gutter-Vac Technicians use a specialize vacuum system that suck out all the mud and debris from your gutters into our trailer leaving no mess for the homeowners to clean up afterwards.  We can clean all types of roof lines from the ground or from the roof as our Technicians have been trained to work at all heights and are covered by insurance to complete this work safely.

Gutter-Vac Central West also offer a free Gutter inspection when you sign up to our Preventive Maintenance Program. We can work out the best scheduling for your gutter maintenance and send you a reminder once they are due.

Permanent Gutter Guard- has been installed over Orange, Bathurst, Parkes, Forbes and surrounding areas. Is Permanent guard effective?

If you’re thinking about installing Permanent Gutter Guard, please do your research. The common myth about installing Permanent Gutter Guards is that “You will never need to clean your gutters again!”

As Gutter Cleaners we are not against protecting your gutters but choosing the right guards can save you money and reduce the risk of damage to your property.

Permanent mesh guards does stop large twigs and large leaves form entering your gutters, but they do not stop seeds and pollen or dust and dirt from entering your gutters therefore over a short amount of time the build-up of sludge will occur and then you have provided the perfect place for vermin to live and breed in your warm ceiling cavity as they now have access to food and water and never need to leave your home.

The only way for a professional gutter cleaner to now clean your gutters is to remove sections or all of the guards, clean and then reinstall (we do not recommend Pressured washing your gutters, as this results in pushing water and sludge into your ceiling cavity). The removal and reinstallation can be expensive to have done regularly

Home Owners will consider gutter guard at some stage of their life, these are some things to consider when buying Gutter Guard

  • Is the building surrounded by trees? If so – do these trees drop pollen or flower annually?

  • Will the product be easily removed for gutter cleaning?

  • The cost of removing, cleaning and reinstalling

  • Will the product be effective and how often will you still need to clean your gutters?

  • The initial cost V’s regular professional gutter cleaners

  • Do you have a pest problem?

  • Or do you live in an area considered to be Prone to Bush fire and is a part of the building regulations to the specific area?

As Professional Gutter Cleaners we have seen many different forms of Gutter Guard across Orange, Bathurst and the Central West and we continue to see how ineffective Permanent guard is and the added expense of cleaning Gutters that are full of debris.

The one common feeling amongst these home owners is that they are bitterly disappointed with the product as they have invested thousands of dollars and the product is ineffective and, in some cases useless.

 The properties we service that have installed gutter guard are finding that the gutters still require gutter cleaning every 12 months to 2 years.

Gutter-Vac Central West Cleans Ceiling Cavities in Orange NSW – What’s In your Ceiling Cavity?

Do you know what’s in your ceiling cavity?

Do you own an older home here in the Central West NSW?

Gutter-Vac Central West NSW will provide a free quote for all ceiling cleans here in Orange, Bathurst, Forbes, Parkes and surrounding areas!

Homes without ceiling insulation will have a general build-up of dirt, soot, rodent droppings, bird nesting and rubbish left in the ceiling by other trades.

The dust and dirt can build up from blowing in from under your eves. In the past generations, the ceiling was also a place to store no longer used furniture, and household goods.

But this ceiling clean here in central Orange NSW offered us something different. The previous owner collected the leaves from the fruit trees in the back yard, dried them out and mixed them with lawn clippings!  Then placed this mix into the ceiling to act as insulation. This owner packed the mixture down between the rafters and continued to add this mix for many more years!

Not only would doing this increase the chance of a ceiling fire if the house wiring would ever short out, but it also supplied rodents and small birds somewhere nice and cosy to live and breed.

It’s certainly not a good idea to ever make your own ceiling insulation as this mix of leaves and grass also caused mould and damp patches to form across the ceiling throughout the home.

Does your ceiling cavity need a clean, especially if you’re replacing insulation?

Give Grahame a call today on 0429 223 443 or 1300 654 253.

Cleaning Steel Water Tanks in Mullion Creek NSW

It is Fire Awareness Week at The Kingborough Chronicle and The Huon News. Every year the newspaper sets aside a time to make the public aware of fire dangers and what they can do to prepare their homes for the coming fire season.

This is our editorial that we submitted for the paper to use;

Summer might not be here yet, but experts are warning that Australia will see a horror bushfire season this year.

After a dry Winter and forecasts of a warm Spring, it is predicted that Tasmania will see a severe bushfire risk throughout Spring and Summer, and an early start to the season.

Forecasts show that most of the state will see a higher than normal risk.

With bushfire season on the horizon, experts are warning that Tasmanians should begin preparing early, and take steps to protect their home.

Residents who live in high-risk areas are being urged to take precautions and prepare by putting together a fire-survival plan, and taking practical steps around the home.

Fire departments recommend that you have your gutters regularly cleaned to help protect your home and reduce the spread of fire.

It is important to ensure that your gutters are free from any debris, as the leafy debris can act as a fuel for stray embers.

Scarily, 90% of homes in a bushfire are lost to an ember attack, whereby spot fires are ignited by burning twigs, leaves or pieces of bark that are carried by the wind.

These embers can land in a home’s guttering and ignite the property if the gutters have not been well-maintained.

It is recommended that all homeowners in bushfire prone areas have their gutter professionally cleaned before it is too late.

Chris and Therese from Gutter-Vac Tasmania say that it is important as debris left in gutters can become tinder-dry throughout the Summer months.

“Debris in gutters is the perfect kindling for embers to start fires. Vacuum cleaning your gutters prior to bushfire season will ensure that this fuel is removed and your property is safer.”

“Be proactive and get your home prepared today. Call the gutter cleaning specialists on 1300 654 253.”
