    In the Uk, the time to clear gutters is typically early autumn before to many leaves have a chance to pile up and cause problems. But if you live in an area with a lot of trees, you may need to do it more than once a year. Gutter clearing is an important part of home maintenance.

    Why You Need to Clear Your Gutters

    Leaves, twigs, and debris can easily build up in your gutters and cause water damage via ingress into your building. If you don’t clear your gutters regularly, the water can back up and seep into your home. This can lead to expensive repairs. It can be a difficult and dangerous job, but it is essential to keeping your home in good condition.

    We would never recommend you do it yourself at height, you need the correct tools and training.

    Ideally, call a professional who offers a gutter-clearing service they will clear your gutters safely and effectively. Check they are correctly insured and carry a waste carriers license if they are taking the debris away from your property. Gone are the days of using a ladder and bucket which can be unsafe due to weather conditions, lone working, and uneven surfaces. More modern methods of cleaning gutters safely are by using an industrial heavy-duty gutter vacuum and high-reach carbon pole set to reach up to gutter height and vacuum all the debris out. Debris is vacuumed up and held in a metal drum. By using an inspection camera placed on the end of the carbon poles the gutters can be inspected from the safety of the ground ensuring they are fully cleared. No need for ladders, no accidents and a quality thorough job can be done
