The method that we use is the gutter vac; a telescopic arm which can be extended to reach gutters at a height of up to 45 feet (roughly four storeys); easily allowing us to professionally attend to the guttering of almost all apartment blocks, as well as hospitals and commercial properties.
The gutter vacuum works by suctioning out the muck which clogs gutters; leaves, moss and mulch. This method both eliminates risk of fall for our personnel and the risk of damage to the guttering or the brickwork of the building being cleaned. It also allows Elite to work without scaffolding, cherry-pickers, ladders or other access equipment, which maintains the privacy of those in the building, and guarantees that costs to clients is kept as low as possible. Additionally, the gutter vacuum is more efficient than traditional gutter cleaning measures, and we will ensure that a thorough job has been achieved before leaving the site.
Why is it necessary?
It is necessary to regularly clear out gutters – which become clogged throughout the year – in order to avoid costly structural repairs. The purpose of guttering is to direct the flow of excess water away from your building, and if they are full of debris then this becomes impossible or even detrimental. The consequences can include:
- Cracked foundations, caused by excessive water by the foundation wall.
- Leaking roofs, caused by ice-dams on gutter build-up.
- Treacherous pavements, caused by gutter overflow, which can also freeze during colder months creating hazardous icy stretches.
- Leaking basements and cellar areas, caused by flooding from over-flowing gutters.
Cracked and sagging pavements and courtyard areas.
