Over time, you may end up needing to clean your gutters more frequently, but you should at least clean them once a year, especially if you have trees that blow debris and leaves into them. Not only that, but you may even have trees that cause more problems, like saplings and dirt which can clog up your gutters and even damage your roof if they’re left unkempt. Cleaning out your gutters is a strenuous process if you don’t have the right tools for the job (or have to do it manually), not to mention an unsafe one. Many people don’t want to spend all of their time in a day on a ladder or on the roof. Therefore, you’re best is to hire a gutter cleaner, especially if you live in the Melbourne area. We’re going to give you some tips on hiring one.
Is it Expensive to Hire a Gutter Cleaning Service?
The truth of the matter is that you can actually save money, especially when you consider the fact that if you should have an accident rather than hiring a professionally licensed and insured Melbourne gutter cleaning service, you may end up with hospital bills, or cause damage to your home unknowingly. It isn’t expensive and normally the cost is less than $200 bucks depending on the size of your home. There are some other things to be concerned with though.
Making Sure They Have Insurance
We mentioned earlier about insurance. You want to make sure that everyone that’s going to be on your roof or working for your gutters can provide proof of insurance, even if you’re not going to be there. If there should happen to be an accident, or even a slip, trip or fall (hey, it happens from time to time), then you don’t want to be liable for it. If you knowingly hire a contractor that isn’t licensed and is uninsured, you’re just causing yourself the trouble of possible fees and legal issues if there is a problem.
Make Sure They Use Top of the Line Equipment and Safety Procedures
Safety protocols always change, so it’s important that your gutter cleaning service uses the proper PPE and has the right equipment for the job. Using industrial powered vacuums can get the job done quickly and efficiently a lot more than the normal style of shop-vacs, and at the same time, you want to know that every worker is harnessed and wearing the proper additional gear (earplugs, safety gloves, non-slip boots) and that they take photos of the before and after job in order to give you the best service possible.
