Hear at Gutter Wiz, we are constantly being called out to clean gutters that have gutter guards installed.
Often the homeowner realises that they have grass growing through the gutter guards.
Unfortunately, when they installed the gutter guards, they could have been under the impression that they would never have to clean the gutters for a very long time. Obviously, they may have problems with trees above and have spent too many weekends gutter cleaning. The business that provides the gutter guards may have slightly misled the homeowner into believing that once the gutter guards are installed they will never have to clean the gutters.
We have never come across a gutter guard that totally stops debris from getting into the gutters. Therefore it doesn’t matter what type of gutter guard you have installed, it is going to require ongoing maintenance. If this maintenance is done on a more regular basis you will never have a problem. If the guys and gutter guards are left for many years, there will be a problem with build-up of dirt and debris. Has got to go it’s block out the light especially in Melbourne the gutters stay wet creating an ideal environment for things to grow. Grass weeds and Moss will start to form underneath the gutter guards without regular gutter cleaning they will block the gutters and cause problems.
If you are in this situation where you have left the gutter guards for many years do not panic. At Gutter Wiz we have developed the perfect method for cleaning out the gutter guards and gutters without removing all of them. If you would like a quote call me on 0411 314 104.
Whether you decide to clean the gutters yourself or hire a professional to do it for you, one thing is certain: cleaning your gutters is a great idea. Apart from letting water to overflow during a heavy downpour, there are numerous problems that can be caused by blocked gutters, including cracked foundations, destroyed landscapes, flooded basements, and much more. Cleaning the gutters is a task that need to be carried out on a regularly basis.
Weather is one of the factors that affect both the solar and photovoltaic panels in a number of ways. A change in the weather conditions makes photovoltaic panels a perfect target for dirt, algae, moss, industrial residue, dust and so forth. These are all elements that elevate the rate of solar panel deterioration.
ARE YOUR GUTTERS READY FOR A CLEAN?
At Gutter Wiz, we know what a dirty, dangerous and unpleasant job gutter cleaning can be. We have cleaned 1000’s of gutters with our truck mounted vacuum. We know exactly how to do it properly. This will ensure your gutter cleaning is done to the best standard. We use the Gutter Wiz – Gutter Vacuum Cleaning method.
I would like to take this opportunity to explain the way we clean gutters and why.
Most businesses offering Gutter Vacuum Cleaning do just that, they vacuum the gutters. From my vast experience of cleaning thousands of gutters both domestic and commercial, I have concluded that just vacuuming gutters is not a thorough clean and I prefer to call it ‘gutter clearing’.
In an ideal scenario there would be loose dry leaves and no dirt. This is the only time we can get away with just vacuuming. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Usually there is dirt built up in the gutters. If it is dry, some of it sticks to the gutters, especially in the corners and under the roofline and the vacuum cannot get all of this out. Same if it is wet and sticky.
That is why we not only vacuum the gutters but rinse them also. This dissolves built up dirt & mud leaving the gutters much cleaner. This also slows the build-up so the gutters will stay cleaner for longer. Even though this process takes longer than just vacuuming, our pricing is still comparable to our competitors.
