Reliable Gutter Cleaning Using Industrial Vacuum
One of the most neglected, and yet most essential, property maintenance jobs in Brisbane is clearing your gutters of leaf debris and litter.
Blocked gutters are a major cause of home flooding when water enters the roof cavity. Interrupting the flow of rainwater from the roof to the storm drains can have disastrous consequences. If, as during heavy storms, the gutters cannot process the water flow they will back up allowing moisture to seep beneath your tiles or metal roof cladding. Once the water spills into the roof cavity it will pool on the plasterboard ceiling, causing extensive damage to not only the plasterboard itself but light fittings and, if it penetrates through the ceiling, to the furniture below.
Even during minor storms, if water repeatedly seeps under the roof line, it will cause a serious deterioration of the timbers in the structure as well as the visible wooden fascia.
I was very happy with the service. I’ve used them twice now – once for possum proofing our house, and second time for cleaning gutters and downpipes. Very polite and efficient.

Quality Gutter Cleaning to Remove leaves & Debris
There are other problems caused by clogged gutters. Water will collect behind the rubbish, corroding the metal and providing an ideal spot for mosquito larvae to grow. The pools of water will attract noisy crows, cockroaches and even snakes. In addition, the leaf litter can supply pesky mice and rats with attractive materials to build their nests in your gutter. They will also drag the rubbish to nests inside your roof. This also provides a dangerous load of fuel for any future bushfires.
Ideally, gutter cleaning should be carried out twice a year, once in Spring ready for the Summer storms and once in Autumn to deal with any seasonal leaf fall. If you are in a heavily leafed Brisbane area, or have trees near your home, you may need to get yours cleaned more frequently.

How Does Gutter Cleaning Work?
Our serviceman cleans out the gutters and valleys removing leaf matter. We will also flush out downpipes if required to ensure water flows properly. Light tree trimming will also be done where branches are sitting in the gutters because it may prevent stormwater from flowing away.
What happens to the leaves and dirt you remove?
Debris removed from the gutters, valleys, roof area or downpipes during a roof clean is removed from the site in bags and bins, by our specialised serviceman.
Are the gutters the only area you clean?
Our serviceman will clean gutters, roof valleys and remove any debris that is sitting on the roof. Gutters are flushed out if there is fine sediment and filters on rain water tanks cleaned to allow better water flow. He can also provide a quote to clean the roof if required, using high pressure water jets.
Can a gutter clean be done if we have gutter guard fitted?
Our serviceman can attend to a gutter cleaning if the clip in type gutterguard is installed however an additional charge may be applied due to the extra time the work will take reinstalling the product. If a permanent type of gutterguard is installed and attached to the roof gutterline and valley areas we often will vacuum up the debris that sits on top and flush out gutters with water (as much as is possible) but we do not usually remove the permanent mesh to clean under.
How Often Should You Do Gutter Cleaning?
That is totally dependent on the number of trees around your property and the type of leaves. If you live in a bushland setting we would generally suggest a roof clean on a 6 monthly basis however many clients will have gutter vacuuming done on a 12 monthly basis.
