Regular gutter cleaning and maintenance is the best way to prevent problems occurring from clogged spouting, downpipes and drains.

Commercial Gutter Cleaning and What You Need to Know

Safety is very important when attempting to clean a building’s gutters, that’s why many homeowners choose to hire a professional gutter cleaning Melbourne, instead of risking venturing onto the roof themselves. While most gutter systems are similar, the main difference between residential gutter cleaning and commercial gutter cleaning is obvious. Commercial buildings are typically larger and taller than residential homes. Two and three story commercial buildings are quite common in Victoria, however reaching the roof of a multistory building, and cleaning large gutter systems safely, isn’t as easy as cleaning a typical single story home’s gutters.

Many government buildings, hospitals, commercial buildings, shopping centers, schools and universities are multistory buildings, which require regular gutter maintenance. Cleaning roof and gutters of multistory buildings can be dangerous, especially, if the staff is not trained in safety techniques. That’s why there are some professional gutter cleaning services, like Apex Vacuum Gutter Cleaning Melbourne area, which are specially trained and prepared in implementing a Safety Management Plan that meets and exceeds governmental safety standards. To safely and effectively reach some of the multistory buildings’ gutters and downpipes requires the use of an elevated work platform or (EWP).

A professional commercial gutter cleaning services, which uses a EWP, will first carry out a risk assessment before commencing on cleaning the roof of a multistory building. A documented risk assessment and Safe Work Method Statement will be submitted to clients before any work begins. Why is that? Conducting a job safety analysis is required to meet insurance requirements. Clients can request copies of Public Liability Insurance and WorkSafe insurance policies, if desired.
