Many customers ask us why we vacuum clean gutters rather than just doing it by hand.
Well, let us tell you why!
Firstly, cleaning by hand is actually not very effective when cleaning your gutters. Sure, you will get out a lot of the leafy matter, but that is not usually the problem in your gutters. It is the mud or what we call the sludge that sits in the bottom of the gutters that is the big problem. As the leafy matter breaks down, combined with what the weather drops into your gutters, it builds up to a sludge that sits along the bottom of your gutters.
Not only can this sludge build up in a way that it will block your gutters and downpipes, but it is also the culprit that will begin the rusting process of your gutters, shortening the life of your gutters.
If you try to clean out this sludge by hand, all that happens is you leave a very big – muddy – mess behind!
Vacuum cleaning is not only effective, it is efficient and safe. Balancing on a ladder whilst you are trying to scoop out muddy sludge is never safe. We are fully safety trained and insured to work from your roof to clean you gutters effectively, efficiently and safely.
