When owning any type of property, it can come with hidden maintenance requirements and costs. Most of the time the main jobs will have already been looked after, such as the paint, pest control and all things electrical. This means we can sometimes forget about the more smaller jobs that need attention, like gutter maintenance.
Gutters are often forgotten about as they are out of sight and out of mind, but leaving minor cracks and allowing debris to pile up in gutters can cause major issues down the track. The only way to prevent any major problems or further damages down the road is to ensure your gutters are maintained and are regularly cleaned.
There are many different types of gutters used in order to prevent problems and help with a variety of issues that may arise. Flat face gutters, rain gutters and tree gutters all do different jobs and require regular maintenance to ensure that they are working at their full capacity.
There are certain things you can look out for that will let you know whether your centre needs new gutters such as:
- Splits, rust, holes and leaks
- Gutter buckling which is due to constant use without maintenance
- Standing water which can be due to clogging and blockage from debris and junk
Whether its wet or dryconditions, it’s important to prepare your facility for whatever it may face. Mathiou Services can help with the cleaning of your centre’s gutters to ensure they are free of any debris. The next step is to check for any damage to the gutters or water leaks that can cause major interior and exterior damage if not attended to immediately.
