Gutter cleaning is just one of the regular services that the UK Commercial Cleaning Solutions team offers to its clients, and it is an important part of maintaining any commercial or industrial building.
Here at UK Commercial Cleaning, we pride ourselves on offering a reliable and efficient gutter cleaning service across our customer base and whether you are looking for full gutter cleaning on an annual basis or an emergency gutter repair to get your system free flowing once more, our professional team can be called upon.
Using state-of-the art technology we offer gutter cleaning services, including subsequent flood testing and surveying, to a number of building types, but why should you make it a regime at your premises?
Safeguard your building’s structure
Clogged and damaged gutters can cause a number of problems for your wider building and even the tiniest leak or crack can result in major issues that are costly to fix. When roof water overflows into blocked gutters then the only route for this water is down into the ground, as well as causing water logging on your premises, increased water absorption will cause damage to your building’s structure.
Escaping water will accumulate around your building’s foundations and without the correct maintenance or repairs, this water will slowly seep into your foundations and weaken the overall structure.
Protect against damp
Damaged gutters and drains will lead to an accumulation of excess water, and thanks to blockages at any part of your system this water will simply have no place to go. As well as causing cracked foundations, this excess water will leave your building more susceptible to leaks and damp, in fact clogged gutters are the primary cause of damp basements.
Pest proof your property
The increased level of excess water and damp at your commercial or industrial property will not only affect the brickwork and foundations of your building, but also rot away any wood in its path. Rotting wood provides the perfect living conditions for all manner of pests, especially wood destroying insects, mice, rats and mosquitos, ensure your property is safeguarded against pest infestation with regular gutter cleaning, maintenance and repair.
Enlisting a commercial cleaning contractor like ourselves to maintain and clean your guttering system on an annual or bi-annual basis, may seem like an extra expense however, using this preventative method will in fact save you money in the long run. As we’ve discovered damaged, blocked and poorly maintained gutters cause a number of problems, most of which will require expensive and disruptive remedial work to resolve.
