Gutter cleaning & pruning trees in Killarney Heights

Today we were cleaning gutters in Killarney Heights but before we could start, we needed to prune the trees that were overhanging the gutters.

That’s right! As an additional service, Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches can also prune back any overhanging branches or trees to prevent blockages and keep your gutters flowing with water.

In particular, vines can quickly cause damage to your home as they will use the  water supply in your gutters to spread their root system throughout your gutters and under the eaves.

When Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches clean your gutters, we remove all the debris from the roof and gutters with our specialised vacuum system. This ensures your gutters are clean and ready to maintain water flow into your downpipes next time it rains.

As part of the Gutter–Vac service, we remove all the debris and branches from your property.

Our customers in Killarney Heights were very pleased they didn’t have to deal with any mess or lopped branches.


For clean gutters with extra care and service, call Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches today on 1300 654 253.

Do you know what’s in your ceiling cavity?

Do you own an older home on the Northern Beaches peninsula? We recently visited a home in Collaroy Plateau and you wouldn’t believe what we found in their ceiling!

Homes without ceiling insulation have a general build-up of dirt, soot, rodent droppings, bird nests. The dust and dirt can also be blown in under your eaves.

For many years, the ceiling was used to store old clothes and household items.

But cleaning the ceiling at a home in Collaroy NSW presented us a surprise!
The previous owner collected magazines and papers and created a wet and dry mix. Then the mixture was packed between the rafters in the ceiling cavity to act as insulation.

It was clear, the previous owner had been doing this for years!
Not only would placing the mixture of paper increase the chance of a ceiling fire if the home’s electrical wiring ever had a short. This practice also supplies rodents and small birds with a wonderful cosy home to live and breed. Plus, there’s a good chance it could cause mould and damp patches in your ceiling throughout your home.

If you’re not sure what’s in your ceiling cavity, call Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches for a free quote. We service the Collaroy Plateau, Northern Beaches and surrounding areas.

It’s also a good idea to clean your ceiling cavity before replacing your ceiling insulation.

So don’t delay. Give Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches a call today on 1300 654 253.

Our 5 step gutter cleaning process. Your guarantee – we will do what we promise.

  1. We Vacuum Everything
    At Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches we literally vacuum everything out of your gutters! That’s all the dust, sludge, dirt, mud, leaves and twigs. Then we take it with us when we leave – unless you’d like to use it in your compost bin.
  2. Downpipes
    We also clear the top end of your downpipes – down to the first bend where 95% of blockages occur. So next time there’s a heavy downpour, you can be confident your downpipes are clear and ready for work.
  3. Roof Valleys
    Next we do the roof valleys. They’re important as they are the most likely place for water to get into the ceiling. In heavy rain, leaves can become stuck in roof valleys. This has a damming affect which can lead to water entering your roof cavity. In older homes, roof valleys are usually made from galvanised steel which will rust if leaves and debris are allowed to collect on them. This will cause leaks. (You’ll know if your roof valleys aren’t working efficiently as you will see a stain on your ceiling.)
  4. No Mess
    Lastly, we commit to leaving no mess behind – which includes inside your roof cavity. (Operators who use blowers to clean the gutters blow leaves into the roof cavity where it dries out to become a potential fire hazard!)
  5. Report
    Finally, we’ll give you a Roof & Gutter Report. It will include before and after photos as well as a personalised Preventative Maintenance Program with every standard gutter cleaning service.

Why Choose Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches

Your gutters may be out of sight but it’s still important to look after them because when it rains, the rainwater needs to go somewhere. If your gutters and downpipes are blocked, the water will go into your roof – causing all sorts of problems.

That’s why we believe cleaning your gutters regularly is an investment in maintaining the value of your property. But why choose us?

5 Excellent reasons to choose Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches

  1. We’re transparent

Our before and after photos will show you what we’ve done and the difference we’ve made. You’ll be amazed at how thoroughly we’ll clean your gutters, downpipes, roof and roof valleys, if you have them. (Roof valleys are “V-shaped” sections used when the angle of your roof changes. In older homes, roof valleys are usually made from galvanised steel which will rust if leaves and debris are allowed to collect on them.) 

  • Our special gutter cleaners

Gutter-Vac uses powerful gutter vacuum cleaners with custom-built attachments to suck up all the dirt, sludge, leaves, twigs and other debris that accumulates in your gutters and downpipes. We also dispose of it for you so you don’t need to do a thing.

  • We never use leaf blowers

Some gutter cleaners use leaf blowers to clean gutters. We never will. Leaf blowers can push the leaves and twigs into your roof cavity – causing a potential fire hazard and creating an inviting nesting area for vermin.

  • We’ll report any roof issues

While we’re on your roof, we inspect it for cracked or dislodged tiles. Anything we find is included in our Roof and Gutter Inspection Report so you can arrange any suggested repairs.

  • We offer a Preventative Maintenance Program

Our set and forget Preventative Maintenance Program is carefully tailored to the needs of your property. When developing your regular gutter cleaning and maintenance program, we consider your surroundings. For example, the proximity and number of flowering or deciduous trees, traffic conditions (which can cause greater dust and sludge accumulation) and if you have a water tank to harvest rainwater from your roof.

Did you know cleaning your solar panels once a year will increase their efficiency?

Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches offers solar panel cleaning as part of their service for residents located across the North Shore & Northern Beaches.

In case you’re not aware, solar panels only operate at maximum efficiency when they are free from dirt, grime, pollution and bird droppings. That’s why they need regular cleaning.

It’s the same with your gutters and downpipes. To maximise their efficiency at draining rainwater away from your roof, they need to be cleared of leaves, twigs, dust and sludge.

If you don’t maintain your gutters, the water will flow into your roof – potentially causing damage to your electricals, insulation and ceiling plaster.

If you have solar panels, we have an easy solution for you.

While we’re cleaning your gutters, roof and downpipes, we can clean your solar panels at the same time. That’s 2 ticks off your home maintenance “To Do” list. (It’s also much safer for you if you leave climbing onto your roof to professionals who have the right safety equipment.)

We always provide a price before we go ahead and we’ll show you before and after photos so you can see for yourself, the difference we’ve made.

If you like what you see, ask us about our Preventative Maintenance Program. It means cleaning your gutters and solar panels becomes a set and forget thing. All you need to do is take our annual call and confirm you would like us to visit. It’s too easy!

We service areas from Terrey Hills to Forestville, Palm Beach to Manly, Balgowlah to Killarney Heights and all the surrounding areas.

Cleaning Gutters – Frenchs Forest, Belrose, Davidson, Forestville & Killarney Heights by Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches

In life, preventing problems is often the best approach and it’s the same with your gutters. That’s why Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches provides a Preventative Maintenance Program.

Some of our clients on the Preventative Maintenance Program are located at Frenchs Forest, Belrose, Davidson, Forestville & Killarney Heights.  While we were in the area last week, we called in to check on one of our residential clients to provide them with a free gutter inspection for their property.

That’s one of the great reasons to join our Preventative Maintenance Program. It means you’ll receive free gutter inspections to work out the best gutter cleaning schedule for your property.

With our experience, we understand every property is different, and therefore has different needs. For example, some of our clients live on the border of national parks and bushland. They receive a lot of dust and dirt build-up over 12 months. Other clients have properties with a number of deciduous pine trees dropping pine needles which quickly clog gutters. Another client lives on a busy road. As a result, their gutters collect a lot of dirt and grime that’s produced by traffic and heavy vehicles. This client also utilises tank water so servicing and maintaining their gutters is particularly important.

We develop individual Preventative Maintenance Programs with our clients’ needs in mind. That includes quarterly, half yearly or yearly cleans on your gutters. We’ll even provide you with a free gutter and roof report while we’re there!

It’s easy to forget to maintain your gutters but with a Preventative Maintenance Program from Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches, you can be confident we never will.

5 things every Northern Beaches property owner should consider before choosing a gutter guard system

The advertising around permanent gutter guard products would have you believe “You never need to clean your gutters again”. But this is a myth.

Permanent mesh gutter protection stops large twigs and large leaves from entering your gutters. But they don’t stop small leaves, petals, seeds, pollen, dust or dirt. Over time, sludge will build up, providing vermin with a bountiful food source, and they’ll soon use your cosy ceiling cavity as their home.

So, even if you have permanent gutter guard installed, your gutters will still need to be cleaned. But worse, if you select the wrong system, these gutter guards will need to be removed, cleaned and re-installed. This can significantly increase the time required to clean your gutters.

Some people suggest pressure washing gutters. But it’s not a good idea as this method simply pushes water and sludge into your ceiling cavity, which can cause damage to your home.

There are some good permanent gutter guard products on the market. You just need to make sure you choose the system that’s right for your property.

5 things to consider when choosing a permanent gutter guard system – especially if you live on Sydney’s leafy North shore

  1. Is your home surrounded by trees? If it is, do these trees drop pollen, shed their leaves or drop flowers?
  1. Does your area have a vermin problem? That includes insects like mosquitos, rats, possums or mice.
  1. Do you live in an area that’s considered to be at risk during bush fire season? If you do, there may be specific building codes that relate to bush fire prevention and this could affect your permanent gutter guard options.
  1. Will the permanent gutter protection system be easy to clean and remove (because your gutters will still need cleaning regardless of the system you choose)?
  1. Is the gutter protection system you’re considering worth the investment compared with the cost of using a regular gutter cleaning service?

As Professional Gutter Cleaners, we have seen many different forms of gutter protection systems across the Northern Beaches and North Shore suburbs of Sydney.

In our view, many of these systems are ineffective and simply add to the costs of gutter cleaning. When we speak to homeowners, the one common feeling they share is their bitter disappointment with the gutter guard product they selected. It usually cost them thousands of dollars and has proven to be ineffective in providing the protection it promised. All gutters need regular cleaning – even if you have a gutter guard product installed. So, if it’s been a year or so since you last cleaned your gutters, give us a call on 1300 654 253 or book on-line at
