Bushfire season is here

It looks like we are shaping up for a very hot summer this year and with that, the droughts throughout the country, it is not the best combination for anyone. We have already seen massive fires in South-West WA and in Adelaide this year and I have a feeling this will not be the last […]

Over the years and throughout the seasons, gutter buildup can cause irreparable damage to even top-of-the-line gutter systems. Gutter maintenance is essential in preventing damage to your home.

#2 Franchise !

I’m very proud to announce that Gutter-Vac has just been awarded the #2 position in Overall Franchise Category in the TopFranchise.com awards. When I began Gutter-Vac 20 years ago, it was because I hated having to clean gutters out by hand when I was running my plumbing business.  It is a dirty and time consuming […]

Gutter Cleaning for Pest Control

Gutter cleaning is essential for pest control. Rotting gutter debris provides a perfect breeding environment for mice, snakes, spiders, cockroaches, beetles and mosquitoes – all of which spread disease. Some of the problems and diseases associated with these vermin include salmonella, staphylococcus, streptococcus, polio, allergies and encephalitis. Many property owners spray in and around their […]

In addition to cleaning your gutters to reduce water tank contamination, Gutter-Vac can also provide water tank cleaning services. For […]

Waterway Pollution Reduction

Gutter cleaning reduces the volume of chemicals entering our waterways. Rotting gutter debris is extremely high in nutrients that pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. Nutrient pollutants in storm water are having a disastrous impact on all aquatic life, not only harming fish, plants and wildlife, but reducing the water quality for humans. You can do […]

Fire Risk Reduction

Removing gutter debris reduces the risk of spreading fire. Fire departments recommend property owners regularly clean their gutters to reduce the risk of spreading fire. During a fire, embers from burning bushland become airborne and are carried away by the hot wind, landing miles away. In a wildfire, it is the embers that typically cause more […]

Water Damage Prevention

Regular cleaning will keep rainwater from damaging your property. Gutters are designed so that the gutter is higher at the front than the back (for a tidier finish). As a result, when rainwater can’t drain from the gutters as intended, the rainwater will flow over the back of the gutters rather than the front. Blocked gutters […]
