Gutter Cleaning / Gutter Clearing Service

gutters2Gutter Cleaning or clearing is when CJ&K remove the build up of moss, dirt, grass, leaves, other plants and tennis balls etc. from your gutters. Not to be confused with gutter cleaning.

Gutter cleaning, not a very ‘glamorous’ service, as you often don’t really notice when it’s done. Keeping your gutters cleared of blockages and running smoothly is very important. If your gutters get blocked, then the water that drains from your roof cannot drain through the gutters, and must find an exit. This is normally done by overflowing and coming over the side of the gutter, then running down your wall.

It’s not a big problem you think? Well, yes it is – and can be a very expensive problem if your gutters are left overflowing.

waterWater running down the outside of your house like this causes damp inside. This is both unsightly and produces mould spores in the house which smell off and can cause breathing difficulties – especially in the very young, old and those with some breathing problems to start with. If the mould is near food storage such as the kitchen, it can spoil the food if the spores get into it. Mould spores can also get into house plants and cause them to mould as well.

Something as simple, and cheap to remedy as gutter cleaning or clearing is actually a very important factor in home maintenance.

In a study by Churchill Insurance, they found that 98% of estate agents said that an unsightly or poorly maintained neighbouring property has a negative impact on the price potential buyers will pay for a home. One of the top five eyesores that has a negative impact on the price potential buyers will pay is “Overflowing Gutters”.
