Let’s talk gutters, the often overlooked part of our houses that really needs to be thrust into the spotlight and to be considered to protect our properties. If it has been a while since you have had your gutters cleaned, now is the time to call in the professionals. Here we highlight why it is important to get those gutters gleaming.
Protect against property damage
Your gutters are the hardworking hero of your house’s interior, and they are often out of sight, out of mind and not thought of until something goes wrong. When gutters become blocked, it can lead to many problems from the rainwater damage such as the development of mould, rotting of fascia boards, water damage to walls and could even harm the foundations of the house. It is therefore important to tend to the gutters before costly repairs are needed and with a professional cleaning service from Prudential, you can safeguard your house against environmental, destructive build up.
When to tend to gutters
How often you should have your gutters cleaned will depend on where you live and what surrounds your property, weather factors and the age of your property. Places that have overhanging trees present or a gathering of moss should be checked regularly to protect against the damages of fallen dirt and debris that will cause the dreaded clogging.
The ideal time to have your gutters checked and cleaned is after autumn and the abundance of leaves that have fallen to ensure your gutters are ready for the winter onslaught of rain, wind and snow.
From here on in, its time to stop neglecting your gutters and keep them in tip top condition to future proof your home and to avoid pesky pricey repairs.
