when to get your gutters cleaned in dudley

How much is gutter cleaning 

There are two main types of gutter cleaning.

With a gutter clear out we do just that. We remove all of the leaves, miss and sludge from the gutters. We often find that there are even weeds growing in the gutters and sometimes even grass.

We remove all of this with our gutter vac system from ground level, sucking everything out of the gutters.  We will even show you everything that we have collected in our large wet and dry vacuum.

Once we have removed the debris, we change the vac onto blow and blow air through the down pipe to check that the down pipe is clear and functional.

The second part of the clean is the PVC fascia and soffit clean.

Here we clean the outside of the gutter, the brackets that hold the gutter in place, the fascia board and the soffits underneath.

The price for gutter cleaning is charged per meter. If you would like the current per meter fee then please contact us.

What is the job of a gutter?

The job of the gutter is to take away rain water that falls on the roof.

It can be surprising how much water can accumulate over even a modish sized roof.

The water collects in the guttering and flows to the down pipe. 

The water is then drained away.

Why get your gutters cleared out?

There are many benefits of getting your gutters cleared out.

Some of the worst and most expensive home insurance claims are caused by water damage.  This can run into millions of pounds per year.

But the bad news is..

Most insurance companies won’t pay out for water damage caused by poorly maintained guttering.

What can happen if your gutter gets blocked?

If your gutter becomes blocked then the water still has to escape somewhere.  The water often over flows to one of two places:

  1. The water can overflow to the outside of the gutter.  Constant dripping onto the ground below means that over time a damp patch can appear on the wall below the blockage.
  1. The water can overflow to the inside of the gutter.   The water will run down the inside of the wall in the upstairs rooms and cause lots of damage.

The answer is to get the gutters regularly cleaned out to prevent damage.

what else could happen to a poorly maintained gutter

Another problem that can result in a poorly maintained gutter is leaks at the joints.  If weeds or grass grow close to the joints in the guttering, then the routs can force their way through the joints causing the rubbers in the joints to corrode and leaks to occurs.

This will inevitably cause damp on the wall below where the escaped water had blown and splashed against the wall.

Why clean the outside of the gutter?

Gutter Cleaning in Dudley outside of gutters

Cleaning the outside of the gutter is mostly for cosmetic purposes.  If you clean the outside of the gutters (particularly white PVC) gutters regularly it will extend the appearance of the gutter by many years.

Clients are often shocked at the replacement cost of guttering and call us to get them cleaned instead.

Unfortunately for some it’s too late to achieve the level of results that they would have achieved if they had kept on to of the cleaning.

Cleaning Gutters in Dudley Terraced Properties

In Dudley, there are very many terraced properties.  Cleaning the gutters on this type of property may require you to get together with some of your neighbours.

If not all want the gutters cleaned then debris from your neighbour could flow into your guttering from theirs. We can sometimes do from the last down pipe to the next down pipe if not all residents want to get involved in sharing the cost of cleaning the gutters.

For the outside of the gutters this is clearly not an issue.

Gutter cleaning Dudley commercial premises

We can also clean gutters in Dudley commercial premises.  Again we will only clean up to the height that we would for domestic premises (ground, first and second floor) using out methods.

Is you have commercial premises with gutters that need cleaning in Dudley then please get in touch.

Gutter cleaning Dudley landlords

Often Tenants of let properties will only inform their landlords when it is too late and the damage has already been caused. 

We clean gutter in many Dudley rental properties.  This will reduce the chances of damage and also serves to show residents of your commitment as a landlord to properly maintaining your property.

What is Fascia cleaning and soffit cleaning?

The Fascias are the PVC boards behind the gutter (The part that the gutter brackets are fixed to)  The Soffits are the bit underneath that often look like white PVC tong and groove.

We do soffit cleaning, fascia cleaning, gutters and bracket all using the same water fed pole that we use for cleaning windows using the following steps.

1. Gutter Cleaning

First we wet the guttering along the whole length with a trickle of water.  We then work along the front face of the gutter along the entire length and then work back in the opposite direction cleaning the under side of the gutter.

2. Gutter Brackets Cleaned

To clean the brackets that hold the gutter in place means that we have to work from left to right cleaning inside the groove in the bracket and then work back from right to left cleaning the groves on the other side.

3. Fascia cleaning

We then use the brush to get up behind the gutter and Clean the facias.  This requires lots of rinsing, but only with a trickle of water.

4. Soffit Cleaning

Again using the brush it is finally time to clean the soffits.  The soffits are usually only about a foot wide, however under canopies over front doors and sometimes over bay windows the soffits can be quite wide.

We have even cleaned large areas of PVC soffits on the underneath of car ports.

How do we remove mould from Soffits and Fascias?

The power of soaking the PVC with even just a trickle of water then using the specially designed brush on our carbon fibre poles achieves fantastic results.  No need for a powerful jet wash to remove mould.

How much does soffit cleaning cost?

This may depend on where you are located as many things cost more in London than in other areas of the country.

It will also depend on the height of the gutter, fascia and soffit to be cleaned.

Some cleaning companies offer just the inside of the gutter to be cleared out, whilst others provide a full in and out service.

At Dirty Marks Cleaning Services we quote gutter, fascia and soffit cleaning by the meter.  Please request a quote for current prices.

Will the soffits and fascias come up like new?

Many people say that when they have their gutters, fascias and soffits cleaned, that they look brand new.  We can never promise this be we will always try our hardest to achieve the best results possible.

What about wood fascia and soffit cleaning?

We are able to clean wood / timber fascias and soffits. This will largely depend on the quality of the paint work.

Do you clean soffits and fascias if they are not white?

Many buildings now have brown, grey, black or other coloured fascias and soffits.  Results always look great in white. But remember. If you are clearing the debris out of the gutter then, how they look is only part of an essential maintenance program.

How high can you clean soffits and fascias?

We are able to clean the ground, first and second floor.  Anything higher results in a loss of quality using the water fed pole method.

How often should your gutter fascias and soffits be cleaned?

How often you should clean your gutters fascias and soffits depends on many variables.  The best way to estimate how long should be left in between each clean is to tell your cleaner how long ago your gutters fascias and soffits were last cleaned and they should be able to estimate how often you would need our services.
