What is it vacuum gutter cleaning?

Just like the name suggests, vacuum cleaning uses a large suction hose to clean your gutters instead of cleaning them by hand.

The vacuum unit is mounted on a vehicle along with a tank that collects the debris after it's sucked up. It's basically a much bigger version of your domestic vacuum cleaner that's been specially designed to clean gutters.

What are the benefits?

Vacuum cleaning allows faster cleaning since the debris is removed and collected in a single step. This means that the cleaner can move more quickly and finish your job sooner.

Vacuum cleaning your gutters also prevents any mess from falling to the ground which can occur when it's being collected by hand. A professional gutter cleaner should always collect any gutter waste instead of throwing it on the ground, but it is still possible that a small amount will fall.

Can it be used on my property?

Most likely, yes. We offer vacuum cleaning for both residential and commercial properties.

Vacuum gutter cleaning can be used on most properties where gutter cleaning is required. However, vacuum cleaning may not always be the most appropriate or effective way to clean your gutters; this will depend on the unique details of your property.

For example, if access is difficult for the vacuum vehicle, the hose may not be able to reach all of your gutters.

We will let you know what your options are when we inspect your property and provide a quote.

How much does it cost?

The cost of your gutter cleaning will depend on your property and the extent of the cleaning required. Some pricing factors include:

  • The length of guttering to be cleaned
  • Single level or multiple storeys
  • Ease of access to the gutters

Generally speaking, vacuum gutter cleaning costs [slightly more] than hand cleaning would for the same property.
