When a gutter is blocked, you may notice mould growing inside your house. The reasoning for this is when the water runs down the side of the house and comes through the wall. This can be easily hidden, due to furniture blocking it.
Blocked gutters can sometimes mean water sitting for hours in one spot on the roof. If this occurs, the water will eventually come through, causing it to leak and eventually collapse the roof.
A clogged gutter can result in water running down the wall, causing a high amount of damage to be done to brickwork. This can also make the house damp and ruin paintwork inside.
Blocked gutters force water to pour down the wall, which can lead to cracking. After the cracking has happened, it can lead dampness and insects attacking your home.
If you do not keep your gutters clean, it can lead to insect attacks. This is due to walls cracking and being damp. Insects also love to bring leaves and food into your home.
Another sign to look for is the gutter sagging. This occurs when the gutter is full of water, debris and other material. Failure to clear the gutter can lead to it breaking, and damaging your home.
A clogged gutter can lead to water falling in places that you would least expect. When a gutter overfills due to blockage, the water can drip down and make surfaces slippery and a danger to walk on.
“Our guttering were in desperate need of a clear out - Steve arrived and give us a very competitive price and did the job in no time without having to use a ladder. He then showed me with the use of his camera that the guttering had been cleared - Great Job!”
“It has been a few years since I last cleaned my gutters, Steve was able to come round with his camera and show me what was in there. I was very surprised at the amount he hoovered up - I ended up using it as compost. He was polite,on time and reasonably priced. I have re-booked him for next year.”
“Got Super Gutter came round over the weekend and cleared all the gutters which were causing damp near our window, it's worked fine and didn't require any scaffolding or ladders that would chip our outer window sill paint.”
“We were meant to do spring cleaning earlier this year but left it til it was too cold to do.
Super gutter vac got it done in no time at all and it looks great.”
