Why clean your gutters?
Gutters are an important part of any house because they help drain the rain water
off the roof. Without regular maintenance gutters fill up with dirt and downpipes can
get blocked. The additional weight can bend plastic gutters (sometimes even break clips)
and affect the correct slope. Blocked downpipes can cause the gutters to quickly fill up with
water and overflow, contributing to a faster degradation of the fascia boards which makes it
easier for the water to infiltrate into the property (mouldy walls, damp patches).
