The importance of regular gutter cleaning in Melbourne
As we move into Autumn and find ourselves expecting heavier rainfall it’s time that we look at 2 key services that Gallant offers to make the homes of Melbourne safe. These are regular Gutter Cleaning in Melbourne along with Gutter & Downpipe Replacement.
Regular Gutter Cleaning
Many people believe regular gutter cleaning is unnecessary but it is actually important to regularly clean your gutters and downpipes 1-2 times a year. We cannot recommend highly enough the importance of regular gutter and downpipe cleaning, so stormwater is able to escape the roof effectively and prevent any damage being done to your property.
As we know these wild storms through Melbourne catch us by surprise and they keep happening more and more often. If leaves and debris are left in gutters, you will find the build-up will decrease the efficiency of your roof and gutters working as they are supposed to. These storms produce tropical like rain, which if not regularly cleaned, can easily overwhelm the gutters and downpipes, causing leaks and damage throughout ceiling and walls.

Gutter & Downpipe Replacement
Eventually your gutters and downpipes corrode and need to be replaced. This can happen prematurely if they are not kept clean. The build-up of debris in gutters retains moisture and accelerates the corrosion process, so we recommend annual cleans which can double or triple the life of your gutters.
If your gutters do need replacing at Gallant we recommend Colourbond metals for a number of reasons; They not only come in a huge colour range, but now with the introduction of matt colours. They look great and last much longer than standard metal gutters.
