Cleaning blocked gutters

Cleaning blocked gutters

We understand the importance of keeping gutters clear on a regular basis for our clients.  With Autumn fast approaching, now is the time to have your gutters cleared. Metro Rod Portsmouth use state of the art equipment to ensure your drains and gutters run freely.

Firstly keeping your gutters clean and free from debris i.e. leaves, dirt and rainwater (we get plenty of this) prevents any blockages arising, which then go on to cause severe damage to your home.  Yes we understand that it’s not going to be on anyone’s favourite list of jobs, and we know gutter cleaning can be somewhat difficult and even dangerous. This is where our team of experts come into play. Here at Metro Rod Portsmouth all our engineers have the knowledge and expertise when it comes to cleaning gutters, we use the innovative Metro Vac system, which uses poles that can reach up to 10 metres high (no need for expensive scaffolding) to ensure an effective gutter clearing service from ground level.

How blocked gutters can cause damage to your home

  1. Water Damage (rainfall) this can eventually seep through your roof, and onto your ceilings.
  2. Wildlife Damage (insects, birds, moss and debris) this can result in vegetation.
  3. Wood Damage (blocked gutters can cause damage to your fascias) this results in severe rotting & deterioration.
  4. Weight Damage (your gutters are not designed to take a lot of weight, debris and water can cause them to bend and break.

Regular gutter cleaning is best being undertaken by a professional at all times, as homeowners do not have the correct equipment nor have the skills to undergo the job entailed. At Metro Rod (Portsmouth) we have inspection cameras to enable us to provide a high quality service, which is both safe and hassle free.

All property’s require on-going maintenance when it comes to gutter cleaning, so please contact your local service centre today on 01258 863745 and we will be more than happy to assist you with all your annual maintenance needs. Our engineers are on call 24hrs, 7 days a week, day or night if you do run in to difficulty across Gosport, Fareham, Waterlooville, Havant, Chichester and Portsmouth and Dorset.
