How often should gutters be cleaned?

Having gutters cleaned is not a legal requirement like a M.O.T. for a car, however it is recommended that gutters should be cleaned annually. This will help to avoid potential and costly problems that could arise due to blocked gutters. In some situations it may be advisable to clean gutters more frequently than once a year due to various factors such as:-

  • Location of property -If a property is located in open woodland, or in rural areas that are exposed to much wind, this could result in gutters becoming blocked very quickly.
  • Type of roof – Some roofs are prone to attracting moss. During rainfall the moss will be washed into the gutters and hence cause them to fill up very rapidly.
  • Location of trees – Gutters that are near to, or are exposed to overhanging trees will easily become filled with leaves and hence the need for frequent cleaning. Pine needles can be particularly troublesome!!

How do I know if my gutters need cleaning?

Without the use of a ladder, here are some visible signs to look out for:-

  • Rainwater spilling over the side of the gutters , especially during heavy rainfall, or evidence of damp on the exterior walls.
  • When looking upwards, there may be grass or other forms of plant growth in the gutters that is visible from the ground.
  • Clumps of moss on the ground near the building.
  • Damp patches or mold on the bedroom wall, or other interior walls could indicate a problem.
