Removing built-up dirt and debris from a gutter

The importance of Gutter Cleaning in Commercial Properties

Unfortunately, too many property management companies neglect to clean their property's gutters. This oversight is, of course, understandable. When a building is over three stories high, it can be challenging to see the gutters from the ground. Therefore gutter issues can go undetected for longer.

No matter how old or new a property is, gutters can become clogged with organic waste like leaves and dirt. Also, extreme weather conditions like freezing temperatures or high winds can damage gutters leading to cracks and breakages. Evening minimal damage to a drain can lead to water pulling which will undermine the integrity of a property's roof. Here at Five Star Facility Services want to discuss the importance of regular gutter cleaning.


Avoiding Roof damage

One of the main functions of a gutter is to lead water away from a roof. This is equally important on a pitched roof and a flat roof. When a gutter becomes damaged or clogged, water begins to pool. Water allowed to stagnant on a roof will damage tiles, concrete and even structural wood. Damage can be costly to repair; therefore, ensuring your gutters are cleaned regularly is essential.


Improve the Aesthetics of a building

When a gutter is allowed to become clogged with dirt, weeds can begin growing within the gutters. The weeds' roots can put pressure on the system that connects the gutters to the property, leading to breakages and broken overhanging gutters. This can have an extremely negative effect on the overall exterior aesthetics of a property. Aesthetics are important. Badly maintained gutters can knock down a property's resale value or discourage commercial businesses from renting space within the building.
