With every autumn comes an increase in reports of blocked guttering and gullies. Allan Rook, Manager at Drain Doctor Southampton Plumbing and Drainage is keen to stress the importance of having a guttering system that is in good condition.

“The main purpose of guttering on any building is to catch water and divert it from the roof edge. This prevents it from coming into contact with foundations, exterior surfaces or from entering the property itself.” said Allan.

“If a section of guttering becomes blocked or damaged by the build-up of debris, such as leaves, twigs, etc. then the structure of the building is at risk from water damage.”.

Drain Doctor Southampton recommends that an annual appointment is booked to clean and check the condition of guttering and gullies to ensure that your property is protected from water damage.

Guttervac can operate at heights of up to 12 metres without the need for ladders or scaffolding. It incorporates a boom-mounted CCTV camera which relays images to the ground so any issues can be seen in real-time, giving customers peace of mind that their gutters have been properly inspected.

To book your Guttervac gutter cleaning appointment simply call the Drain Doctor Southampton office on 02392 401304.
