Annual Gutter Clearing in Little Baddow 21/06/13

It is recommended that people have their gutters cleared of moss, leaves and other debris at least once a year to stop blockages. Damage can be caused to woodwork and walls when water overflows from gutters instead of flowing away properly. The weight of soaked debris can damage guttering especially when it freezes.

Our purpose designed gutter clearing system enables us to work safely and quickly from ground level.

Once on site we can quickly set up the equipment which is packed and ready to go in our van.

Into the down pipes of the gutter – this is were the Vacuum Unit excels over the traditional clearing method, as you can get right into the bend of the pipe without having to remove it, thus making it easier, faster & cheaper to carry out the job

The debris & dirty waste water from the front of the house only – the Vacuum Unit works best when there is a little water in the gutter as the water helps to keep or stick all the waste (moss, leaves, sticks, etc) in the gutter together when sucking out.
