Perth Downpipe Cleaning From A Professional Team
In an ideal world, your downpipes (aka, downspouts) would be cleaned along with your gutters, as part of a disciplined home maintenance regime. However, we know it doesn’t always happen that way, and personally cleaning your home’s drainage system can fall to the wayside.
Engaging a business like APM Roofing and Gutters to clean your downpipes as part of an ongoing Perth home roof maintenance plan can prevent a laundry list of issues, not limited to: rot and mildew, insect infestations, damaged insulation, cracked foundations of your home, and even a destroyed garden.
Downpipe Cleaning & TLC Goes A Long Way
A bit of TLC and downpipe cleaning will keep your home’s drainage system in tip-top shape and prevent potentially dangerous situations – or expensive bills. Due to corrosion, freak Perth storms, animals nesting and stray debris, downpipes can sometimes get blocked, and you might have luck clearing them yourself.
Cleaning your downpipes can be as simple as taking a hose and feeding it through the top opening where it feeds into the gutter. You might need someone else to check whether the water is flowing through properly. Hopefully, this clears the blockage and any water pooled or overflowing. From here, a quick rinse of the system should remove any last bits of debris.
Whenever you are successful in clearing a blockage in your downpipes or gutters, it is always recommended to check to see if you can identify the cause. Maybe it’s fallen debris from an overhanging tree that needs pruning, or you need to install gutter guards to prevent the problem from recurring.
Or, maybe one of the kids somehow got a tennis ball lodged inside. It wouldn’t be the first time. If, however, you’ve tried a flush and the clog persists, the downpipe might need dismantling, repairs, or replacement. At this point, if you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing, it’s probably a good idea to get a professional opinion.
