Over in Western Australia, Thomas and Sarella Kessel are busy cleaning gutters, solar panels, ceiling cavities. We recently caught up with them between jobs, and had a chat about what life as a Gutter-Vac franchisee is like.
Where do your territories service?
Midland, Joondalup & Wanneroo, in Perth.
What are the benefits of having your gutters regularly cleaned?
Your service will prevent any unforeseen damage from gutter and downpipe overflows, caused by leaves and debris, thus giving you peace of mind, and reducing the chance of needing a costly insurance repair. It prolongs the life of your guttering by removing moist sludge and moss to prevent rusting. It also protects from the threat of embers in bushfire season.
What does an average day as a Gutter-Vac franchisee look like for you?
We are out in nature most days (no boring office job here), protecting millions of dollars in commercial and residential property and doing our bit to help the community.
What is the strangest thing you have found in a gutter?
We have found everything from half the kids toybox – to a cat skeleton…inside ceiling cavities is where you never know what you will find.
What would you say to someone considering buying a Gutter-Vac franchise?
If you want a business to suit your lifestyle, this is it…. work to suit your leisure hours, or make your hours suit your bank account…the choice is yours.
