Dead leaves – hazardous and potentially very damaging to property and people…

The autumn leaves have come late this year, indeed the temperature has been so mild that we were all still cutting our grass a few short weeks ago!  However, the sudden change in temperature and the arrival of some high winds has seen the leaves drop from the trees almost overnight.

Whilst they may produce a colourful spectacle, they do pose very definite problems for property owners.

Home owners can easily see leaves on the ground, but are you checking the gutter cleaning Glasgow?  The sudden fall of leaves, and the subsequent wet weather, will more than likely have resulted in your gutters being blocked, this can cause serious problems with your property.

Gutters are designed to remove water from your property, if they are blocked the water will find alternative routes, there in lies the problem.  It is essential to keep them clean and free of blockages otherwise they cannot fulfil their purpose.
