Clean Your Gutters And Avoid Flooded Carpet Damage!

Blocked gutters are a key cause of water backflow into homes during heavy rainfall; the result being wet ceilings, wet walls, structural damage, and flooded carpet.  In many cases, content is also water damaged and not salvageable.  A little bit of hard work to clear your blocked gutters from leaves, gum nuts and other organic matter could save you much heartache from unexpected water damage and flooding during heavy storms.

When there is heavy rain, gutters struggle to keep the water flowing and moving through downpipes.  When gutters are blocked, the storm water cannot flow fast enough. With heavy rainfall your gutters could overflow and cause extensive water damage to your home, including carpet flood damage.
