Gutter Cleaning During Coronavirus Quarantine
Has the coronavirus quarantine got you sitting at home wondering what to do? Well, now is the perfect time to knock a few jobs off the old to-do list. If you’re like most Aussie homeowners, cleaning out your gutters is sure to be on there.
You might be wondering why now is the best time though. Gutter cleaning isn’t the most exciting job. It can be dirty hard work as you move a ladder around and pull out all sorts of unspeakable mess from your gutters.
But there really is no time like the present. And here’s why.
- It’s a productive use for extra time at home
With a lot of lockdown restrictions still in place, the majority of us are still working from home. Without that regular commute, you’re likely to have found yourself with extra time in the mornings and evenings. Not to mention that the weekends seem to go forever now since you can’t go anywhere.
Make use of that time at home by taking care of some of those important jobs around the house that you never seem to get time to do: Like cleaning the gutters.
- It’s a chance to get outside
As much as you may love your home, staying inside all day for weeks on end can leave you pretty fed up. It might be hard to get some space to yourself if you’ve got kids or housemates.
Cleaning the gutters is the perfect reason to disappear outside for a few hours though. Get the ladder and climb onto your roof. While it won’t exactly be the nicest job to do, you can enjoy some sunshine as you work. This might be your last chance before Melbourne winter sets in.
- It’s a way to stay moving
With gyms closed and social distancing measures in practice, plenty of people have seen their exercise routines change for the worse or disappear entirely. A lack of exercise can make you feel sluggish and depressed. It can even affect your sleep.
Getting up a ladder and doing some serious roof gutter cleaning is a good way to get the blood pumping again though. Sure, it’s not a full gym workout, but you’ll certainly feel better for it.
Why is it so important?
If you need more convincing, then understanding exactly how clogged gutters can damage your house will do it, making regular gutter cleaning extremely important. Not to mention learning how much it costs to repair these roof and gutter problems.
If your gutter doesn’t drain properly, water collects on the roof or overflows down the sides of your house. You can expect some major moisture damage to your roofing and foundations if this happens. The repair bill for these gutter problems can easily be more than $10,000. Compare this to the average cost of roof and gutter cleaning in Melbourne and being proactive seems like an excellent decision.
And it’s not only water you need to worry about. Gutters full of leaves and branches can be a real fire risk. All it takes is one spark and your home could be ablaze.
