Why you should have your gutters cleaned out regularly.

You should inspect and clean your gutters regularly. If you do not clean your gutters then leaves, moss, sticks and soil can block them up. Yes, you read that right we said soil!

Every raindrop is formed by water condensing on a speck of dust. Rainwater also washes down the dust that is in the air and on your roof straight into your gutters. It is the same reason why you get your windows or car washed- dust that is in the air is brought down to settle on your property every time it rains! Over time, the dust builds up and can result in blocked gutters.

Water Damage

When your gutters become blocked the water flow and drainage slows down or is stopped completely. This causes more problems as the soil and other debris now has nowhere to go! It just sits there and builds up. Then it rains and the water has nowhere to go, so it overflows from your gutters dripping all down your walls!

Walls exposed to water over a long time can become damp and discoloured. Then, during the depths of winter, the water on your walls will freeze. When water freezes it expands and can cause real damage to your property often this will result in crumbling walls and mortar! You are now looking at expensive repairs!

Sagging Gutters

Due to the build-up of soil and other debris in your gutters they can become very heavy especially when it is wet. Eventually, your gutters will start to sag. This can result in broken joint seals and even the gutter falling off! You are now looking at expensive repairs!

To avoid this damage and the resulting expensive repairs it is recommended that you get your gutters cleared out twice a year or at least annually.

Can I clean my gutters myself?

If you are confident, physically strong with a good head for heights then gutter cleaning is something you could do yourself.

However, be careful! If you have an accident it could be disastrous to life and property!

Please note the following is for information only. If you choose to clean your own gutters, following advice here, you do so entirely at your own risk!

We do not recommend that you clean your own gutters. We recommend you use a professional gutter cleaning service like the one we offer in the Ormskirk area. --See below for advice on how to choose a professional gutter cleaning service.

DIY Gutter Cleaning

To do your own gutter cleaning you will need the following equipment:

  1. A ladder or some other secure way to access your gutters.
  2. Gloves — gardening gloves would be ideal.
  3. A large strong bucket and something to attach it to the ladders as you work.
  4. Always ensure your ladder is properly erected, secure, and footed by someone on the ground. Make sure no one is underneath your ladder as you work. Please read and understand the following Health & Safety advice before you use a ladder - Safe use of ladders and stepladders: A brief guide (
  5. While you can use a trowel to scoop out the leaves, soil, and other debris from your gutters we recommend using your hand. Sometimes it can be hard to fit tools in under the overhang of your roof tiles also, there is the risk that you may drop your tools causing damage below!
  6. Scoop out the debris by hand into your securely attached bucket. — Do not let this bucket get too full or heavy!
  7. Once you have cleared your gutters it is a good idea to use a hose pipe to test the water flow and check for leaks.

Well done! You have now cleaned out your gutters and you are well on your way to becoming a professional gutter cleaner! If you live in the Ormskirk area why not get in touch as we might have a job for you!

How to choose a professional gutter cleaning service?

Do you feel confident enough to clean your gutters yourself? If not, that is OK. You should get in touch with a professional gutter cleaning service available in the Ormskirk area. But how do you find a professional service, and not some fly-by-night cowboy who may not do a thorough job or damage your property?

Here are our tips to help you choose a professional gutter cleaning service:

  • Are they a proper business? Do they have a registered office and real address? Is this on their literature or website? You will need this to complain if things go wrong or if they do a poor job.
  • Do they have insurance? Tradesman public liability insurance is a must. This should cover them for damage to you, others, or your property.
  • Are the insured to work at height? A lot of insurance policies have restrictions on this so best to check.
  • Do they have a landline telephone? It is important that any company you choose has a real telephone number. Is this number quoted on business stationary or on their website? Having a real number shows that they are contactable and not operating from a 'burner phone'.
  • Are they VAT registered? Yes, this will make their service 20% more expensive however, the V in VAT stands for value which will be in the experience they have gained over the years. — You want someone who knows what they are doing. Also, being VAT registered indicates that you are dealing with a bona fide company.
  • Have you checked their online reputation? Read online reviews about the company and their service. Obviously, you are looking for positive reviews but how do they deal with negative reviews? Complaints should be dealt with courteously, and they should want to resolve any issues or problem that the customer has encountered from using their service.
  • Can you be invoiced for the work done? Cash in hand jobs give you little or no protection. An invoice is a legal document that shows what work was supposed to be done and for what price.
  • Who made contact first? You should always make first contact. Avoid cold calls and be very wary of people who knock on your door offering their services!

While all the above are common sense checks to make, it can take a lot of time. That is why we can confirm that we meet all the above requirements and will be more than happy to share proof with you should you want us to.
