The Importance Of Gutter Maintenance In Autumn

Autumn has arrived and with autumn comes harsher weather combined with the falling leaves, both of which can be an absolute nightmare for your gutters. Fallen leaves in your gutter with larger amounts of rain fall can cause serious blockages that can cause irreparable damage to your building, and if not seen to, can have detrimental effects on the foundations of your building too.

Gutter maintenance is essential in the autumn months to prevent these kinds of blockages taking hold, making sure you work with a professional team like Clifton regularly will ensure that your roof and gutters are checked and well kept, as well as meaning that any problems the team do find can be resolved instantly without a build up left over time. Gutter maintenance and cleaning professionals will look for blocked drains, be able to sort that problem with thorough professional cleaning and will even search for any breakages and decay.

If you have trees surrounding your building it’s really important to make sure that the branches are sturdy and not leaning into your building for support, as this can also have a detrimental effect over time, so again making sure the surroundings of your building are well kept too, will make sure you don’t encounter too many problems this autumn.

Additionally, regularly gutter cleaning is needed out to ensure stagnant water isn’t gathered in the blocked channels, which would lead to rotting. We would never recommend anyone clean their own gutters due to the health and safety risks associated with working at height, so ensure you always contact a professional to help with inspections.
