Our Gallant Plumbers were recently called out to a building complex in Heidelberg to perform a routine gutter cleaning. They were contracted to inspect and clean the gutters of all eight units. Our highly skilled team began by taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure that the job was being completed safely. Once the site was secure they used a hose to flush all of the buildings gutters and downpipes.
Our professional plumbers didn’t just perform a gutter cleaning in Heidelberg but they also inspected and made recommendations for how they could improve all of their rain removal systems. While inspecting the units gutters, the plumbers noticed that 7 out of the 8 units had faulty ridge pointing and recommended to the building owner that they should re-point all ridge cappings. They also noticed some signs of internal surface rust. Although the gutters hadn’t rusted through yet, the plumbers were able to inform the owner and make a long term maintenance plan to ensure that no issues would occur in the future.
Gutter maintenance always tends to fall to the bottom of most people to-do-lists. This can quickly become a costly oversight for property owners. Gutters are an integral part of any building. They control the direction and flow of rainwater. A gutter and downpipe clogged with leaves, sticks and debris can cause leaky roofs, which can result in water damage to the interior, exterior and foundation of your property. Clogged gutters can also result in pests, rodents, mold and bee infestations. Such damage and infestations can be extremely costly, but are also easily avoidable. Ensuring that your gutters and downpipes are clean and in perfect working order is therefore a vital risk mitigation step for any building owner. We can help you with your gutter cleaning in Heidelberg or Melbourne.
