Gutter Cleaning

Gutter Cleaning

Ensuring your gutters are clear and clean is an important part of your homes weatherproofing -and-amp; waterproofing system.

Debris can collect in the gutters. Grass, moss and even birds nest can frequently be found to be the cause of blockage to the gutter. It is difficult to predict and prevent however as for the most part the contents of the gutter is very difficult to see from the ground.

It is important that the gutters are cleaned regularly. Bi-annually is preferred. Spring and autumn ideally. Although if your house is located directly under trees more frequent cleaning may be required. It is advisable to have the gutters cleaned before winter. If debris and water get trapped in the gutter it can freeze in the colder weather and form blocks of ice. This will put a strain on the gutter, the gutter brackets and also the gutter mounting. The trapped water can be particularly corrosive and cause damage or rusting to the gutters. Copper gutters, aluminium gutters and steel gutters can be badly damaged bythe trapped water.If left the damage can be so bad that replacement gutters are required.

If the gutters are not maintained adequately and water is unable to drain away from the house damage can result. Often the first inclination a homeowner has that their gutters need to be cleaned is the damp coming through a wall due to the faulty gutter system. Regular routine cleaning of the gutters can prevent problems such as this before they arise.

When our gutter cleaners arrive at your home to clean the gutters do tell him where you feel there is a problem with the gutters, such as a leak, and the gutter cleaner will be sure to check the gutters are completely cleaned, and he will pay particular attention to any problem areas that you have mentioned.

If your home is a two-story property, whether terraced, semi-detached or detached, we will clean the gutters with traditional gutter cleaning tools and gutter cleaning equipment.

The gutter is cleared of all grass, moss, leaves etc. Where one gutter meets another, or at the joins, there can often be gaps. If this is the case leaks can occur and water can run down the outside way of the property potentially causinga lot of damage. We seal this with gutter sealant taking care of the leaks. If it rains straight after we have applied gutter sealant to the joins the sealant will not have time to set, so it will need re-sealed at the joins again. We will come back to do this on a dry day. We then check the down pipe or down spout and if this is blocked we unblock it. Finally, the gutters and the gutter brackets are checked for any serious damage. If any is found, we inform the client. Costly replacement of guttering however is rarely necessary and most of the time we are able to reassure the client that they now have clean gutters which are fully operational.

If your home is a 3-storey property or higher we use the gutter VAC system. This is a system that ensures we are able to clean gutters up to heights of 50 feet or around 4 storeys from the ground. Most if not all professional gutter cleaning companies use this system for very tall buildings. It is a safe way to ensure gutters are cleaned without the need to employ expensive equipment such as cherry pickers or scaffolding. Off course, we also check the downpipe as well and clear it if it is blocked.

Thomas Bartle

We used Snow White Professionals to completely landscape and renovate every aspect of our garden. From levelling the ground to extending our patio, adding edging stones and outdoor lighting to installing premium artificial turf and a shed, every care and attention was taken.They did a brilliant job from start to finish and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future. Highly recommended.

Andy Whiting

Snow White Professionals have done several jobs for us, ranging from garden maintenance and installing fencing to blocking up an old doorway and making some bespoke shelving. The quality of every job have been excellent. Their staff all 5work hard; arrive at 8am and work through to late afternoon to get the job done. Unlike many companies, it's easy to get hold of the boss, they're always willing to quote even for small jobs, and the quotes arrive quickly. After trying a few other companies, with mixed results, we'll be sticking with Snow White.

Excellent gardening service. I will use them again. The job has done today was outstanding, very well organised, gardeners were friendly and professional. The best gardeners I have ever had. Highly recommend.

Ashley Fryer

We booked Snow White to clear a load of garden waste and to remove the remaining plants and roots. Their quote was very competitive and they were able to come the same week. They were quick on email and helpful with additional questions. We had three gardeners arrive and complete the work in just an hour! They were very professional and friendly and absolutely cracked on with it despite the hot weather. They left the garden very tidy too. We are thrilled with the result and will definitely keep them in mind for future gardening help! Before and after photos below! Thank you to the brilliant team for all the hard work.
