5 tips on Gutter Cleaning

Cleaning gutters can be a messy job, but Oxley’s is a professional company that has been offering gutter cleaning services in Rotherham, Sheffield, Doncaster & Barnsley. Gutter cleaning and clearing are often overlooked, but together with the roofing system, they are an essential part of your buildings safety and security.

Clogged gutters can lead to big problems and compromises the overall integrity of the property. Here are five reasons you should have your gutters cleaned on a regular basis:


Protects your roof

Prevent expensive repairs with regular cleaning. Clogged gutters hinder the flow of water causing rainwater to overflow. Overflowing water will eventually damage your roof, walls, and landscaping, leading to costly repair work. In addition, clogged gutters cause weight strain on your roof and the fascia, if the gutters get too full, they may collapse, causing damage to the shingles of the roof and the exterior of the property.


Increase Value & Aesthetic 

Clogged gutters will reduce the aesthetic value of your premise and generally lower the overall valuation of any building you intend to sell. Repairing the gutters will improve how the roof looks, providing better curb appeal and increased valuations.


Prevent Infestations

Accumulation of debris creates a desirable location for rodents and pests, resulting in infestation by disease causing organisms, all of which are significant health hazards. Cleaning the gutters eradicates the rot and kills any pests or rodents that have made the clogged spaces their home.


Good First Impressions

Within 7 seconds first impressions are made, how your premises appears will influence a client’s view of your business immediately. If your gutters are clogged and your roof is leaking it will quickly give a poor first impression. A smart and clean building free from leaks, provides good curb appeal.


Protects your Foundations

Gutters are designed to collect rainwater and channel it away from vital parts of buildings such as the foundation. When clogged gutters overflow, the water will drip or flow too close to the foundation and compromise its stability.

Partnering with a professional industrial cleaning company, such as Oxley’s, provides you with the peace of mind that every aspect of your building’s exterior will be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.
