As a homeowner, it’s crucial that you implement the right maintenance solutions to keep your property in top condition. Regular checks by a professional to maintain the upkeep of your residence can help prevent problems that may surface otherwise.
Maintaining and cleaning your gutters will ensure proper drainage so you avoid any hiccups. It is recommended you get these professionally cleaned and serviced twice a year, as this can save you hundreds, if not thousands, in the long run, compared to the cost of damages.
When the outskirts of your roof is blocked with debris, the water ends up getting to places that can potentially cause severe damage and result in quite a costly repair bill.
Flooding, wood damage, having to repair your landscaping, and mould and mildew removal are just a few of the issues that could arise to start. Here are a few problems that may occur without regular maintenance:
You don’t want the roof of your house to come crashing down because of a blocked drain, do you?
Well, if your gutter is blocked, the water will flow outwards, creating a pool in your foundation which causes erosion and weakens the walls, leading to cracks in the foundation. When the pooling water’s strain on the roof becomes too heavy to hold, fatal damages can occur to the exterior of the house.
A roof choked with debris can lead to blocked drains below, with the potential to flood your beautiful garden with the dirty sewage water. This leads to excessive water in the soil.
If not maintained, clogged drains are the perfect place for any pests and rodents to hide. Stagnant water is the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes and insects. Debris can also be a number one spot for bees to build their nests in, increasing the potential of being stung.
This can lead to many hygiene and health issues if these pests find their way into your homes. All this will not only affect the physical health of you and your loved ones, but the expensive doctor’s appointments and medicines might burn a hole in your pocket, too.
The main question is – how much does a regular service cost? We can assure you it’s much less expensive than paying for the consequences.
We do not recommend doing this yourself as there are many risks involved, especially when you have to climb onto a slippery roof.
