What is the difference between commercial and domestic gutter cleaning? Actually there are several differences. All buildings have to have a drainage system for rainwater but obviously on a big commercial unit everything is scaled up. The walls are higher, the gutters are wider and longer, the downpipes are longer and there is more scope for them to become blocked. So the whole problem is bigger.
On top of that the whole approach to cleaning and unblocking has to be different. It may involve cherry pickers and man-lifts operated by skilled professionals. This is definitely not a DIY job.
The challenge for the site manager is to balance the costs with the benefits of gutter cleaning and of course the consequences of not cleaning the gutters. The recent recession has understandably left us all a little leaner and somewhat meaner than we were before. However there is a cost to neglecting jobs that need to be done; if the guttering is not maintained properly the gutters can overflow leading to water ingress and damage to the structure of the building. One advantage of getting the essential maintenance done is that your building, whether it is a factory, an office or a warehouse always looks as it should and this gives a good first impression to your clients.
The first thing that is needed is advice from the experts. This is where the specialists at Aquaclear come in. We can pay you a visit, assess the problems and can and do a site survey.

No one at Aquaclear will try to pressure you into paying for something you either don’t need or don’t want. We tell you honestly how it is and leave the decision up to you.
If you decide that the job does need doing you will need an accurate estimate of all costs, a safety survey and a health and safety statement and depending on the surroundings you might also need a traffic management plan.
