Gutter Cleaning in London

Blocked gutters are a common problem. Leaves and other material get blown onto roofs and drain into gutters and downpipes every autumn. This can easily cause blockages if enough debris collects. That’s when problems start!

It’s a good idea to prevent against blockages by having your gutter cleaning done on a regular basis. Fixing or replacing guttering and downpipes that have broken as a result of becoming blocked could cost you more than regular cleaning.

An Aspect roofer can safely access your gutters, cleaning them of debris and checking for any potential problems.

Blocked gutters can be the start of more problems

If enough leaf litter, moss, and other debris build up in your gutters and downpipes to cause a blockage you should arrange to have them cleaned as quickly as possible. If you don’t, you can expect bigger problems.

The weight of water and soaked debris that builds up behind a blockage puts excess pressure on gutter and downpipe joints. This extra weight can cause sections of guttering to sag, joints to open and support fixings to weaken.

In addition, the rainwater that no longer drains away will flow over the top of the guttering and cascade down the brickwork. A visible sign of this process taking place is the growth of moss and algae on brickwork. This can cause damp and, if the gutters aren’t cleared. In severe cases this could even reduce the structural integrity of your property.

SkyVac gutter cleaning

We use equipment called SkyVac to reach high up gutters and gutters with restricted access. Gutters in hard to reach places such as above extensions and conservatories, and top floors of townhouses are usually impossible to reach with only the use of a ladder – not for us!

SkyVac is essentially a vacuum cleaner with a 10 metre reach, which is equivalent to a 3-storey building. It can clear leaves, moss, twigs, mud, and anything else that finds its way into guttering and causes build-up – wet or dry. Affixed to the top of the SkyVac is a CCTV camera which we use to record the level of debris in the gutters before cleaning, and throughout the cleaning process.

With this camera, we can provide video and photographic evidence of what was cleared from the gutters. We also use the video to detect any issues with the guttering itself. If we find any, our tradespeople can assess there and then.

This vacuuming equipment allows for gutters to be cleaned without the use of ladders or intrusive scaffolding. Not only does this save time, it negates the need for anyone to scale heights to reach the gutters. With SkyVac, our tradespeople can easily clear debris from formerly insurmountable areas.
