The plant growing in this downpipe in Sandy Bay is causing a blockage and deteriorating the downpipe. Debris has built up and any material that tries to escape with the rain water is now compacted at this catch point. The seeds then germinate, and the garden begins.
Having a blocked downpipe puts a strain on the gutters and can cause them to build up. Your gutters can begin to decay and rust when left unattended. Further issues may result which could be quite expensive to fix.
By cleaning your gutters frequently, you are prolonging the lifetime of the gutter. After your initial clean, Gutter-Vac Northern and Southern Tasmania offer a free reminder service. Depending on the frequency period your gutters require cleaning, we can send a reminder when it’s that time of year again.
If you notice any growth in your gutters, call the professional to come and clean them for you. You can get a free quote here or call us on 1300 654 253.
