The Importance Of Clean Gutters

Regular cleaning of your property’s gutters is incredibly important. Without clear gutters, your home or business is susceptible to a host of issues.

Water Damage

Not only do your gutters help catch and redirect rainwater away from your roof, but they also stop it from pooling around the foundations of your home.

When blocked, this water, which should be directed into the stormwater drainage system, can back up and overflow. This could mean water entering your roof space, flooding at ground level and more.

This can cause significant structural damage and also lead to rusting and deterioration of your gutters, leading to expensive repairs of the affected areas.


Gutters helpfully capture water, but they also capture pollen and can cause damp issues and mould growth in your home when blocked.

If you suffer from recurrent damp and mould growth in your home, poorly maintained gutters could be a contributing factor.

Bacterial Growth

Did you know that legionella bacteria can grow in warm and stagnant water trapped in your guttering?

The cause of legionnaires disease, this bacteria causes serious illness in humans and can even be fatal in some cases.


Embers from bushfires can travel great distances on the wind. Even if you do not live close to bushfire risk zones, a single ember caught on the breeze can easily ignite dry leaf litter in your gutters.

The best way to avoid these risks is to keep your gutters clean and debris-free. This is best achieved through professional cleaning and maintenance at least once per year.

Firstly, we clear the roof and valleys of all leaves and sticks. Then, by hand we scoop out all leaves and debris from the gutters and dispose of it into bags. Finally, if needed we blow out any remaining debris with a petrol blower. Once complete we make sure to tidy up any ground debris.

Gutters should be cleared late autumn when all leaves have fallen and early Summer. This allows for the removal of debris before the rainy season, ensuring proper water flow and minimizing the risk of clogs and water damage.

When clear, a gutter can safely catch, carry and dispose of rain. However if the gutter is blocked by debris, the water is no longer able to be safely carried away and begins to overflow risking damage to your home. 

The duration of gutter cleaning can vary depending on factors such as the size of your home, the amount of debris present, and the complexity of the gutter system. On average, a professional gutter cleaning service can typically be completed within a few hours, while DIY cleaning may take longer, depending on your experience and the tools available.

We recommend cleaning your gutters twice a year as a minimum – once in early summer and once immediately after autumn finishes. Depending on other factors such as tree coverage your gutters may need to be cleaned more frequently.

Gutters and downpipes can clog up with leaves, dirt and other debris and restrict the flow of water away from your house leaving it to redirect into your home.

Signs of clogged gutters are rain water spilling over the gutter due to the gutters being too full. The water can then not reach the downpipes. Next time it is raining, take the time to have a look at your gutters. If you notice water spilling out it is a good sign that you are due for a gutter clean.

Use a ladder stabilizer for safety, wear gloves and eye protection, remove debris with a gutter scoop, flush the gutters and downspouts with a hose, and always have a partner to spot you.

Regular maintenance is the best way to keep gutters clean. This includes scheduling seasonal cleanings to remove debris and ensuring that downspouts are clear of obstructions. Additionally, installing gutter guards or screens can help prevent debris buildup and minimize the need for frequent cleaning.
