The Best Way to Clean Your Gutters

Have you ever tried to clean your own gutters?

If you’re like most people, you drag your ladder out of the tool shed once in a blue moon, question its reliability, and climb up a few steps to peer into your gutter and pick out the stray tennis ball or cluster of leaves.

However, if you’re being honest with yourself, you know that you don’t do this often enough and, without the help of a professional, this method is not efficient enough to thoroughly clean your gutters. If you have this creeping suspicion, we’re here to tell you that you’re right. Not only is this method inefficient, but it is actually quite dangerous, which is why you shouldn’t do it at all! We have a better solution.

Gutter cleaning is necessary if you want your house to remain in pristine condition. This has always been the case and will continue to be true indefinitely. But the methods that we use to clean gutters has shifted with the introduction of new technology. Long gone are the days of climbing onto precariously perched ladders to haphazardly clean your gutters. This is 2017.

We have advanced in gutter cleaning technology and can offer much safer, more efficient alternatives to the traditional method of cleaning. One of the most popular such methods is the guttervac system. The guttervac system is a ladderless gutter cleaning method, which ensures safety and removes the risk of property damage. It has completely revolutionized external gutter cleaning.

If you aren’t quite able to picture a Guttervac machine, just envision a large vacuum with an incredibly long hose. Guttervac machines are incredibly efficient for gutter cleaning because they can reach high gutters while the worker remains on the ground. Revive Cleaning and Maintenance Ltd. prioritizes the safety of both its workers and its customers’ homes. Guttervac machines keep workers safe because they don’t have to climb tall ladders to reach inside of gutters. Additionally, customers’ homes won’t be damaged by unnecessary ladder use.

Revive Cleaning and Maintenance Ltd. is the premier provider of exterior property cleaning services in the greater Essex area. We have been in business for many years, which has allowed us to become familiar with all kinds of cleaning products and tools. Our many years of experience in the exterior cleaning industry means that we have been able to try out these different items and find what works best to clean our customers’ homes.

Revive Cleaning and Maintenance Ltd. is a family-run business and we treat our customers like they are part of the family. We strive for high customer satisfaction rates and are always reliable, efficient and professional.

Give us a call today so you can see for yourself why Guttervac machines are the most efficient way to clean your gutters!

Why Cleaning Your Gutters is Important 

When is the last time you had a good look at your gutters? We don’t mean the last time you looked up at your gutters, but rather when is the last time you climbed onto your ladder and looked in your gutters?

You probably don’t remember the last time you did this. We sure hope you don’t do this often! Ladders can be pretty dangerous, especially if you aren’t careful. Besides, we can probably tell you what your gutters look like without you needing to take a look yourself. If you haven’t had your gutters professionally cleaned lately, which most people haven’t, it probably looks a little something like this: filled with dirt and stray toys and blocked with clumps of wet, mucky leaves. Not only is this description unappealing, but it can cause several problems for your home.

Gutter cleaning is so important for any homeowner. We know that you may have many pressing matters to tend to when it comes to home maintenance, but neglecting your gutters could backfire. Gutter cleaning is crucial because if you don’t make sure that your gutters are clear and rid of all obstructions, it can lead to water ingress which will eventually cause damage to your property.

Water ingress is when water seeps into the fabric of your building. You may think that this is unlikely to happen since your gutters are on the outside of your home. However, it is already November. We are at the end of autumn and on the brink of winter, which means that Essex and the surrounding areas have been hammered with rain storms and have seen the trees already change colors and shed their leaves. The winds that pick up during this time of the year carry the stray leaves into your gutters and the rains dampen these leaves, making them stick.

When these clumps of damp leaves fill your gutters, they can weigh your gutters down and become so wet that the water actually seeps from the gutters to the roof or walls of your home. Ironically, the entire point of gutters is to control the flow of rainwater off of your roof and direct it to the ground. However, if you don’t have your gutters professionally cleaned often, the opposite effect will occur. This water ingress can cause substantial damage that is quite expensive to fix.

Gutter cleaning should be performed by a professional, usually twice a year, in autumn and spring.

But why do gutters need to be cleaned professionally? Firstly, climbing onto ladders to clean your own gutters can be dangerous for both your own safety as well as the condition of your home. Ladders easily scuff walls when they are used and, if not stable enough, can move underneath you.

Professional exterior cleaning companies like Revive Cleaning and Maintenance Ltd. is trained to ensure high levels of safety when they work. In fact, we have full Public Liability Insurance to guarantee the safety of our workers and our customers. We can guarantee high quality services along with safety. We clean all gutters by hand and even fix leaking joints, as well as flush gutters through to test for leaks.

Our work is guaranteed, so if anything goes wrong, we will come back immediately to fix the problem. What else could you possibly want in a professional exterior cleaning company?

The Premiere Provider of Gutter Clearing Services

At Revive Cleaning and Maintenance, we offer a plethora of exterior property cleaning services that cover everything from window cleaning to UPVC cleaning.

Based in Brentwood, we service the surrounding areas including Essex, Chelmsford, Romford, Loughton and Billericay. When asked about the important types of exterior property cleaning services, most people would mention window cleaning, driveway cleaning and maybe even roof cleaning. However, many people forget about the importance of cleaning their gutters! Revive Cleaning and Maintenance is the premiere provider of gutter clearing services in the greater Essex area and we are here to help.

Do you know how often you are supposed to get your gutters professionally checked to avoid blockages? Twice a year. If gutters aren’t checked at least twice per year, leaves and moss can block the gutters, which can lead to high repair bills. Gutter blockage can lead to water leaking from the gutters onto your walls and the foundation of your home and can also cause the gutter itself to fall from your property. Water damage can be surprisingly costly to fix and gutters are integral to the well-being of your home. Without a gutter, you will not be able to control the flow of rainwater off of your roof or protect your walls and ceilings from water damage.

Most people clean their gutters themselves occasionally, so they feel that they have no need for professional gutter clearing services. However, many people underestimate the amount of work that goes into properly clearing gutters and they end up not cleaning theirs thoroughly enough. This can lead to severe damage, as mentioned earlier. So why hire a professional to provide gutter clearing services? What can professionals do that you can’t?

Not only do we clear your gutters by hand, but we also repair them. We fix any leaking joints, brackets or downpipes. If we can’t repair the problem, we can completely replace the damaged part. We also flush through all of the gutters that we service to ensure that there are no leaks that went unnoticed. In order to ensure high customer satisfaction, we also take before and after pictures of the gutters that we clean and guarantee our work for up to one year.

Revive Cleaning and Maintenance goes above and beyond what most other exterior property cleaning service providers are willing to provide. We recognize the importance of gutter clearing services and know that, in order to provide high quality services to our customers, the job cannot be rushed or done half heartedly. We care so much about customer service that we even offer free site surveys and advice to properties within a 10 mile radius of Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood, Essex.

As you can tell by this article, clearing your gutters is incredibly important if you want to preserve the condition of your home. Neglecting to hire professionals to clear your gutters, or only cleaning them partly yourself, can result in both property damage and high repair costs. What are you waiting for?

Give Revive Cleaning and Maintenance a call today. We would love to answer any of your questions.

The Importance of UPVC Cleaning Services

You may be well versed in the importance of clearing your gutters regularly, but have you considered UPVC Cleaning Services?

At Revive Cleaning and Maintenance, we take UPVC Cleaning very seriously. We offer several exterior property cleaning services in the greater Essex area including window cleaning, gutter clearing and UPVC cleaning services. UPVC cleaning is crucial to keeping your home looking its best.

UPVC cleaning involves the cleaning and whitening of the gutters, as well as the fascia board and soffit behind the gutters. It can also include the cleaning and whitening of any UPVC cladding that is located around dormer windows and porches. Hiring professionals to provide UPVC cleaning services is essential – we’re trained to work at height and have the equipment to do it safely. As professional cleaners, we already have all of the right equipment and chemicals needed to tackle UPVC cleaning. Not to mention, at Revive Cleaning and Maintenance, we have significant experience doing so. UPVC cleaning could be an extremely difficult, time consuming and potentially dangerous job for anyone not familiar with it.

We offer two options when it comes to UPVC cleaning services. The first option involves washing down the gutters, fascia board and soffit with a degreaser designed specifically for these surfaces. The surfaces will then be left to dry naturally. By washing these areas down with a degreaser, it will clean deep to remove all surface dirt and dust, but also traffic film and stains to leave a completely white, clean finish. The second option also includes washing the necessary areas with a degreaser, but the areas are then dried by hand and polished with a UPVC restorer. This is typically a specially designed cream cleaner. In addition to one of the above options, when you request UPVC cleaning services from us, we also include thorough cleaning of your gutters both inside and out, and the cleaning of your windows – both the glass and frames.

As you can tell, at Revive Cleaning and Maintenance, we take a very thorough approach to UPVC cleaning. We value the satisfaction of our customers so we put in the extra effort. UPVC cleaning is necessary because your gutters and the surrounding area are incredibly visible aspects of your home. Friends, neighbors and visitors will notice if this area appears dirty, especially if you are sure to clean the rest of the exterior of your home.

Are you convinced yet of the importance of UPVC cleaning services? Revive Cleaning and Maintenance services the areas of Essex, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Romford, Loughton and Billericay. Feel free to give us a call today with any questions you may have. If you are located within 10 miles of Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood, Essex, we will come assess your property for free.

We offer a wide range of high quality exterior property cleaning services at affordable rates. Enquire today about how we can best service your property cleaning needs.

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Services

If we’ve learnt one thing in nearly 20 years working in Essex and the South East – serving owners of homes and small businesses from Basildon to Grays, and from Chelmsford to Witham – it’s that the good people of these areas are truly proud of their homes. That’s the reason we’ve been able to thrive in this area (aside from our charm and good looks, of course!): because people are so invested in keeping their homes looking as good as they possibly can.

Areas which do tend to escape people’s attentions, however, are driveways and patios. This is entirely natural, of course. Firstly, because you simply don’t spend a lot of time staring at the ground! Secondly, because driveways and patios become dirty so gradually. The buildup of dirt, and the growth of moss and weeds, happens over a period of months, meaning you don’t really notice it. At your next earliest convenience, take a good look at your patio or driveway; is it time to give it a clean? If so, read on!

When it comes to driveway and patio cleaning, there isn’t a better choice than Revive Cleaning & Maintenance Ltd. That’s true whether you’re in Romford, Horchurch, Upminster… or really anywhere else in Essex!

We’re able to tackle block paving, tarmac, pathways, paving slabs, or anything else you can throw at us! The method we use – which you can read more about here – has been perfected over many years, and ensures your patio or driveway is freed of dirt, moss and weeds. Not only that, but we’ll restore it to the point where it’ll look as good as the day it was installed. We also offer a sealing service, which helps to restore the surface, protect it from staining, and prevent those pesky weeds and moss from growing back again.

“That’s all well and good,” we hear you say, “but can’t I just do it myself?” Well, good citizen of Essex, technically the answer is yes… but we definitely wouldn’t recommend it!

Firstly, you have the initial trouble of going out and buying a pressure washer; and believe us, high quality pressure washers certainly aren’t cheap. Secondly, there’s the danger you pose to your surface. Pressure washing exterior surfaces might look nice and easy, but in reality you need to be extremely careful. If not, you risk causing serious damage to your surface, which in turn will incur a big cost in getting it repaired or replaced. Thirdly, there’s a significant danger to yourself. Pressure washers are extremely powerful things. In untrained hands, they can cause some pretty nasty injuries.

It’s quicker, easier, and almost certainly cheaper, to hire a professional outfit like Revive Cleaning & Maintenance Ltd. We bring state-of-the-art pressure washing equipment with us, which our employees are highly trained in using. We work extremely carefully, have a great deal of experience and, crucially, have full public liability insurance.

If you’re not convinced by now, we ask you to take a look at before-and-after pictures of some of our work for yourself. We think you’ll agree that the results we achieve are truly transformative, and, with all due respect, you’re unlikely to get those kinds of results with the DIY approach!

So if you’re a homeowner in Rayleigh, Benfleet, Langdon Hills, Little Baddow, or anywhere else in Essex, we’d love to hear from you. In fact, the invitation extends to small business owners who have patios or driveways at their premises too! If you’re not quite ready to pull the trigger on a cleaning job yet, we’re happy to offer you free advice, or even give on-site demonstrations of our specialist equipment.

Does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Of course it does! So give us a call now on 01277 724593, or message us online here.
