The strange thing about commercial gutter cleaning is that it is not as popular or as in demand as it was ten years ago. Back in 2006 you would have seen facilities managers and site owners allocating a considerable amount of their budgets to ensuring that their commercial guttering systems were correctly maintained and in working order – especially if you didn’t want to spend your maintenance budget on the same guttering repairs every 6 months. |
Fortunately, help is at hand. In the UK alone there are more than five million registered businesses with companies’ house. Over 20% of those businesses are registered in the construction industry and I am certain that a fair amount of them will cover commercial guttering – or do they?
I love my job. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside some truly great people through-out my career as a tradesmen. I have worked with some of the leading organisations in the UK, providing them with state of the art commercial gutter cleaning and re-lining. We know more than anyone that the UK is not blessed with the luxurious climates that our European neighbours are cherished with year after year. More often than not we receive regular down-pours and this can contribute greatly to block our guttering systems.
However, help is at hand. There are many things that you can do to contribute to the regular maintenance and upkeep of your commercial guttering. First things first, make sure that the building has a regular roof audit completed. I would suggest at least once every 6 months depending on the age of the building and roofing structure. This will highlight maintenance opportunities and contribute to saving a lot of money on repairs.
Contact a professional guttering system contractor. They will have crack teams available nationwide to help assess and repair your commercial guttering. On site guttering systems can get blocked rather easily. This is usually down to leaves and debris that fall from overhanging trees or plant life. It doesn’t take too long to clear if you identify it rather quickly. However, if you decide to leave it for 2-3 months, things can quickly become more difficult.
