The last thing most people want after a heavy downpour is to have to spend a fortune replacing damaged plaster and paint work on ceilings or repair roof tiles. However, it is possible to save ourselves a lot of money simply by understanding the requirements of regular gutter cleaning. Most homeowners view gutters as “out of sight, out of mind” but gutter cleaning is a vital part of any home maintenance routine and should be overlooked or avoided.
Many years ago, homes and building were not fitted with gutters, never considered the usefulness of an effective gutters system. However, rooftop drainage was usually achieved by homes and buildings having very steep and large overhanging roofs fitted in such a way that rainwater was routed into a specially designed demarcated area.
But the standard for modern day buildings all over the world is an effective guttering system – and it makes good sense. When we have a heavy downpour, the water is effectively guided down the roof, into the gutter system and down the downspouts leading the water away from our valuable homes. Most standard homes are usually fitted with downspouts on each corner of the house to ensure water is carried away quickly and with minimum risk of overflowing.
Some people, from an environmental viewpoint, prefer having gutters which lead directly into a specially designed water catchment container for later use in the dry months.
You will have rain water unable to flow to the nearest downpipe which will inevitably overflow and come gushing down your walls, from there it is only a matter of time before it starts to penetrate through your outside brickwork through to the inside of your home. As internal damp and wet patches start to form within your rooms internal paintwork and decorations will rapidly start to deteriorate.
Flooding can happen in a very short period of time depending on the size of the downpour and so another costly exercise.
