1. Why it’s important to keep your gutters clean and free from debris

Full gutters not only look unattractive, but they make a great home for many pests. Nobody wants to share their home with mice, roaches, mosquitoes, and spiders – so don’t make it inviting with dirty gutters!

Whilst the concept of gutter guards is great, they can’t prevent all debris from getting into your gutter. They also don’t remove any of the debris so eventually they will still need to be cleared off anyways. Not cleaning gutter guards can cause water to pool and stagnate, particularly troublesome for those collecting rainwater in tanks as this will contaminate the water.

If you have blockages during a heavy downpour, the build up of pressure can cause your gutters to break. It’s much more cost effective to clean your gutters regularly than to have to get gutter repairs.

2. The dangers of letting your gutters overflow

Blocked gutters aren’t just an unsightly or pesky problem, they can lead to seriously expensive and even life threatening outcomes.

Roof gutters full of debris are basically free tinder waiting to be lit up. You greatly increase the risk of a fire hazard to your home by leaving them full.

In heavy rains, blocked gutters and downpipes leave water only one place to go, which is back inside your home. If the water damage is bad enough, it can lead to ongoing damp or internal damage that can compromise the integrity of your home and make it unsafe to live in, leaving you and your family with no other choice but to seek alternative accommodation.

3. Kleen Genie’s top tips for preventing gutters from overflowing

Ensuring your gutters are cleaned on a regular basis can help to prevent overflow. Typically, you’ll only need to clean them annually. Unless your property has a lot of trees creating extra debris in which case you’ll need to clean more regularly.

Keeping trees trimmed to below your gutter line can also help to greatly reduce the amount of debris your gutters will catch.
