This service is more crucial than people realize. Gutters need to be clear to ensure water is running freely down the guttering and downpipes. It doesn’t take much for a downpipe to get blocked, causing a water buildup. Any backed up water has to go somewhere. So where is it going? It could be going behind the flashings and into the ceiling or the water could be causing the gutter to sag with its weight.
For properties dependent on rain water collection, guttering is an essential part of your water collection process. Blocked guttering can limit your water collection capabilities and can increase the potential for contamination due to algae growth in blocked gutters.
