* What happens if it rains?
If it is light rain we can carry out the work or continue working if we’ve already started, however if the situation is too dangerous – ie on a slippery roof – then we will have to postpone the work for another suitable time.
* How often do I need the gutters cleaned?
We recommend every 6 to 12 months having the roof and gutters inspected and cleaned.
* What about “gutter guard”?
Many properties have gutter guard to help in protecting the gutters from falling leaves. Here are a few things to keep in mind about gutter guard:
The gutters will still need to be cleaned regularly – this is because the leaves up on the roof will start to decompose and filter down UNDER the gutter guard causing blocked gutters after time. When this occurs the gutter guard then has to be removed to clean the gutters. Depending on the type of gutter guard installed this process can take considerably longer than a standard gutter clean without gutter guard. Regularly cleaning the leaves off the roof and top of the gutter guard can prevent this from happening.
* How often do I need a window clean?
Some of our customers have their windows cleaned on a monthly basis, while others may have them cleaned every 6 weeks, 6 months, yearly or just a one off clean for a special occassion.
* What safety precautions do you take?
Our extension ladders are fitted with stabilisers to help with keeping the ladder level on sloping and uneven ground, while the top of the ladder has rubber caps to prevent damaging the exterior surface of the house and to stop the ladder from slipping.
Depending on the pitch, condition and type of roof, we will survey the safest way to access the roof and work from the roof. We have the appropriate harness equipment if needed to stay safe up on the roof while cleaning the gutters, windows or solar panels.
