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

Every raindrop is formed by water condensing on a dot of grit. Rainwater also washes down the soil that is in the air and on your roofing 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.


When your gutters become blocked the water flow and drainage decreases or is stopped completely. This causes more problems as the soil and other waste 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 soaked and discoloured. Then, during the midst of winter, the water on your walls will freeze. When water freezes it expands and can cause real destruction to your property often this will lead in crumbling walls and mortar! You are now looking at expensive repairs!


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 lead to in broken joint seals and even the gutter falling off! You are now looking at expensive repairs!

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


Physically strong with a good head for heights then gutter cleaning is something you could do yourself if you are confident.

However, beware! 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 Skelmersdale area. -- See below for recommendations on how to choose a professional gutter cleaning service.


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 make sure your ladder is properly erected, secure, and footed by someone on the ground. Ensure that no one is underneath your ladder as you operate. Please check out and understand the following Health & Safety advice before you use a ladder - Safe use of stepladders and ladders: A brief guide (
  5. While you can use a trowel to gather 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 danger that you may drop your tools causing harm below!
  6. Excavate 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 great 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 an expert gutter cleaner! If you live in the Skelmersdale area why not get in touch as we might have a job for you!


If you don’t feel confident enough to clean your gutters yourself that is OK. You should get in touch with a specialist gutter cleaning service available in the Skelmersdale 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?


  1. Are they a proper business? Do they have a registered office and real address? Is this on their literature or site? You will need this to complain if things go wrong or if they do a poor job.
  2. Do they have insurance? Tradesperson public liability insurance is a must. This should cover them for damage to you, others, or your property.
  3. Are the insured to work at height? A lot of insurance policies have restrictions on this so best to check.
  4. Do they have a landline business phone? 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'.
  5. 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 prior experience they have gained over the years. -- You want someone who understands what they are doing. Also, being VAT registered indicates that you are dealing with a real company.
  6. Have you examined their internet reputation? Read online testimonials about the company and their service. Undoubtedly, you are looking for good reviews but how do they deal with negative reviews? Complaints should be dealt with courteously, and they should want to deal with any issues or problem that the customer has encountered from using their service.
  7. Can you be invoiced for the work done? Cash in hand jobs give you little or no safeguards. An invoice is a legal document that shows what service was supposed to be done and for what price.
  8. Who made contact first? You should always make first contact. Stay away from sales calls and be cautious of people who knock on your door offering their assistances!

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