Blocked gutters and downpipes are usually caused by the accumulation of leaves, twigs, dirt, moss, and other debris that fall on the roof and get washed into the gutters by rainwater. Sometimes, birds, rodents, insects, or plants can also nest or grow in the gutters and downpipes, creating more blockage.
Some signs of blocked gutters and downpipes are:
– Water overflowing from the sides of the gutters or splashing from the pipes at ground level
– Water leaking into the roof or walls of the house, causing stains, mould, or rot
– Gutters sagging or pulling away from the fascia due to the weight of the water and debris
– Gutters rusting or corroding due to the moisture and organic matter
– Pests infesting the gutters or downpipes, such as birds, mice, snakes, or mosquitos
The frequency of cleaning your gutters and downpipes depends on several factors, such as the type and slope of your roof, the amount and type of trees around your house, and the climate and weather conditions in your area. Generally, it is recommended to clean your gutters and downpipes at least twice a year, preferably in spring and autumn, to prevent clogging and damage.
To clean your gutters and downpipes yourself, you will need some tools and equipment, such as a ladder, gloves, bucket, trowel, hose, wire, plunger, or drain rods. Here are some steps to follow:
– Set up your ladder safely and securely on a level ground and wear gloves to protect your hands
– Scoop out any loose debris from the gutters using a trowel or your hands and put them in a bucket
– Flush out any remaining dirt or sediment from the gutters using a hose with a nozzle attachment
– Check if the downpipes are blocked by pouring some water down them from the top
– If the downpipes are blocked at the top, try to hook out or break up the blockage using a wire with a bent end
– If the downpipes are blocked in the middle or at the bottom, try to push out or dislodge the blockage using a plunger or drain rods
– If you cannot clear the blockage yourself, call a professional plumber or gutter cleaner for assistance
