Why is it so important to get your gutters cleaned?

Gutters manage the flow of rainwater into downpipes and away from your home. If these are blocked, in a bad rainstorm the water can build up and even flow back into your house and damage your home inside and outside.  

Decomposing foliage in gutters creates a perfect environment for rust to grow and eat away at the gutter. Here at Gutter-Vac Northern Rivers, our vacuum gutter cleaning removes this wet debris and therefore prevents the effects of rust in your gutters. Additionally, decomposing debris in gutters creates the perfect environment for an ecosystem of small insects like mosquitos and cockroaches, all the way through to small animals like mice, rats, birds, and snakes. These insects and animals can make their way into your roof and if small enough into your house.

Dry leaves on your roof and in your gutters act as the perfect fire-starting material. In hot and dry weather, it would only take one fire ember to fall on these leaves and ignite. You may think that a spark will never land inside your gutters, but this actually can happen. 

Clean gutters are essential for the protection of your home, both interior and exterior. Give us a call at Gutter-Vac Northern Rivers for a free no obligation quote, on 1300 654 253.
