Gutter obstruction, what to watch out for?
One of the frequent tasks undertaken by the company Αποφράξεις Πειραιά is the blockage of gutters. Having a lot of experience in this field and having specialized plumbers who undertake this work, we wanted to point out the points that we think you should pay attention to, in order for such work to be done properly. Before we start talking about what to look out for, we would like to point out that clogging gutters is not a simple task that one can do on one’s own.

For this reason we suggest you to visit us in Chalandri , in the Northern Suburbs , so that our experienced professionals can undertake all the necessary work for you.

The problems that can be created by a clogged gutter are many for our home or business allowing water to enter the basement or create moisture or mold in various places. That is why blocking gutters is a very important task that should not be neglected, because it will create incalculable damage.

When the gutter can no longer drain the water, then it is required to call the experienced technicians of the company Αποφράξεις Πειραιά to block the gutter piping.

But what causes the gutter to clog and require clogging? A common cause is usually the plants we have on our terrace or balcony. From the pots with plants and flowers, the leaves from the plants and the soil from the pots fall to the floor, as a result of which they end up at the mouth (reception) of the gutter of the balcony or the terrace. 

In fact, by watering the plants and cleaning the area of ​​the terrace or balcony, with the water we throw or with the rain water, all the solid materials are led to the socket (mouth) of the gutter. Thus, any of the solids that manage to pass through the protective mesh of the orifice will gradually accumulate along the pipe, blocking the flow of water until at the end the pipe is completely clogged (total blockage) and our gutter urgently needs to be blocked.

To prevent clogging of the gutters it is necessary to clean the orifices as well as all the piping at regular intervals. For example, meticulously wiping the terrace or balcony of leaves, soil and other solid materials, especially before the rain, helps to prevent flooding from rainwater. Especially in the autumn / winter period, keeping clean by sweeping should be even more regular and diligent, because rains are an even more common phenomenon. A sudden storm can cause damage and flooding to your home or business.




However, in the event of a blockage in our personal space, we must act immediately. As mentioned earlier, blocking gutters is not something that can be done on your own. It is a complex task that requires specialization, knowledge, experience and the necessary tools.

The specialized professionals of the company Αποφράξεις Πειραιά will first thoroughly clean the gutter orifice so that solid materials do not pass inside and then by removing the protective mesh of the gutter orifice they will clean the inside of the gutter pipe.
