The windy and rainy climate coupled with the often leafy and tree riddled neighbourhoods in New South Wales means that your gutters need to be cleaned frequently.
Although gutters are a critical part of every home, most of us forget to notice the problems that might be going on with them. Due to improper maintenance, it’s easier for the gutters to fill with unwanted debris and become blocked.
Blocked gutters can become a nightmare as they can cause serious water damage to your home by ushering water into your eaves via the back of your gutters.
We outline below 4 signs which call for your gutters to be immediately cleaned:
1: Plants growing in your gutters
When debris is collected in your gutters, they become a desirable environment for plants to grow. Plants growing in your gutters eliminate the flow of the water to its final destination causing leaks.
2: Bird’s nesting in your gutters
Gutter filled with debris can be a perfect place for birds to build a nest. Birds may also find an access points into your roof from holes or openings near your gutters. As they build their nest, they will bring with them leaf litter, droppings and other pests. This activity can damage your home and pose as a health and safety risk to your family.
Due to improper gutter maintenance, you might start seeing the additional weight of plants and other debris causing the gutters to sag. This can result in the fall of the gutter becoming incorrect, leading to leaks and other issues, and can even cause the gutters to dangerously fall off your house.
4: Rain is spilling over the edges
If your gutters are full of debris, then it eliminates the smooth flow of rainwater through the guttering system. To eliminate such situation, it’s important to regularly clean your gutters.
