DIY vs Professional Gutter Cleaning

DIY vs Professional Gutter Cleaning

Damaged, blocked or clogged gutters are one of the most annoying and time-consuming problems for anyone to deal with. If not well looked after, gutters turn from something supposed to make life easier into a very costly problem. Some issues around the home such as a paint touch up or new light bulbs is an easy fix and you won’t need a professional though that’s not the case with your gutters.

It is recommended by gutter cleaning professionals that you have your gutters cleaned a minimum of twice a year. Which, when you think about it, is a lot less often than expected. This is because when you have your gutters cleaned by professionals, you’re ensuring that they’re cleaned properly. Here are a few other reasons why it’s better to go with the professionals when it comes to cleaning your gutters.

D.I.Y won’t cut it

So many DIY gutter cleaning projects result in a less than desired outcome. Costs of materials and tools build up while days of labour go into the job and eventually it would’ve worked out more convenient and sometimes even cheaper to have your gutters professionally cleaned. Not to mention the additional costs to dispose of the debris. And after all of that effort, a lot of D.I.Y jobs turn out with oversight to damage, ineffective and messy.

Safety always comes first

Doing a quick spot check for large pieces of debris after strong weather conditions might not cause any harm, it’s working on your roof or ladder where the danger enters. Most serious injuries in the home are caused by ladder or roof falls, with some ending fatally.

At ProFlo, we use new and innovative technology that allows us to extend a wand over the top of a roof and gutters and then vacuum out the debris with a hose. This technology allows us to work without risk of injuring ourselves.

In the cases that we do attend the job by climbing up onto the roof, rest easy knowing we are fully insured.

Experience matters

So how do you know when and how often your gutters need to be professionally cleaned? We wish it was that simple. The answer is, it truly depends. The best thing to do is contact the professionals. After working with professionals once, they’ll be able to give you an estimation of when and how often you’ll be needing to have your gutters cleaned.

Gutter cleaning is a timely job and not something you want to be having done more than you need to, so it’s best to trust the experts.

Ideally, gutters should be cleaned a minimum of twice a year in Perth, due to the strong stormy conditions we have during Summer and the coastal winds constantly blowing in from the Ocean. If you live up in the Perth hills, gutter cleaning may be more regular due to the fire risks posed by fallen dry leaves and branches.
