Meet James, representing the underwriting company Insurance Made Easy. Every Gutter-Vac franchise has liability insurance. You can be assured that when we are doing a job for you, we are fully covered in the event of damage or injury.
In addition to this, we are also trained and certified in “Working Safely At Heights”. They even trained the office lady (me!) and I will never get on a roof! But at Gutter-Vac, safety is a priority.
That’s why when you employ us to take care of a job for you, we’ve got your gutter cleaning covered!
We had an interesting experience cleaning solar panels recently. The home owner had checked the output of the solar panels prior to our cleaning them. When the client re-measured the output after our solar panel clean, it had DOUBLED!
Solar panels need to be cleaned as a result of pollen and wind-blown dust in the air settling on them (and sometimes bird and bat droppings) and it is recommended that this should be done every 6 mths:
“We recommend that panels be cleaned and inspected at a minimum once every six months. Cleaning at regular intervals prevents buildup of residue and keeps your panels operating optimally at all times.” Solar Choice Nov 24, 2016
If you have solar panels on your roof, we have all the brushes and equipment required to give them a thorough clean so you will always get optimum results from your panels.
Ask us to check your solar panels while we are cleaning your roof gutters. A small outlay to clean your panels can result in a huge price reduction in your power bill!
The Australian winter months always amaze me as you never know quite what the weather is going to do each day. Today it’s raining but tomorrow, it could be another beautiful day in paradise!
What stays the same though, is the amount of debris that falls from the local trees into the roof gutters and then in true Aussie style, grows with abandon from there! I have seen some beautiful “gardens” sprouting from the gutters of the houses we have cleaned. Of course, the larger this “garden” grows, the more any rainwater is blocked from its natural runoff. The water backs up and then seeps through the ceiling, often causing damage.
Make sure your roof gutters are clean and clear this winter season. Our vacuum cleaning system will remove all those “roof gardens” for you. The debris will be vacuumed into our drums which we remove from site, leaving the area around your home in top condition.
This week, we cleaned one of many rainwater tanks. The owners were horrified to see the state of the water as it flowed out prior to cleaning. Sometimes we forget that the quality of the water is affected by the state of not only the roof gutters that the rain flows from but the tank itself. Once you have the debris removed from the gutters and the tank cleaned, you can be assured that the quality of the water is perfect.
The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (published by the Federal Health Dept) recommend that along with regular maintenance, you should desludge your rainwater tank about every 2-3 years. We live on acreage ourselves and have 2 concrete water tanks that we clean regularly so that we can be assured that our drinking water is the best it can be.
If you want your roof gutters and water tanks cleaned, call us on 1300 654 253.
About 18 months ago, Mike and I started looking for a business to own and operate. We did a lot of searching and discovered that Gutter-Vac had won the 2017 Franchise of The Year. This peaked our interest. Now you hear some horror stories about franchises, so we were very careful to do our due diligence. We wanted a business that aligned with our values of honesty and integrity, hard work and a job well done. We found this in the Gutter-Vac brand. On 5 February 2018, we purchased the Gold Coast North franchise and we have never looked back! We love owning this business, working with fabulous clients and having the amazing support from the Gutter-Vac people. If you want to own a business that will align with high standards and values, call Gutter-Vac on 1300 654 253. Warren and Anne Ballantyne have built this business from small beginnings to a National Company that we are proud to be a part of.
