Full Wash and Clean Service (Fascia & Soffit, Guttering)

Conservatory Roof Cleaning

The Fascia and Soffit cleaning process begins with a meticulous clearing of debris from gutters. This step prevents clogs that can lead to water damage and structural problems.

Next, the fascia and soffit, integral components of the roof’s guttering system are cleaned and washed. These features, often neglected, are pivotal in preventing moisture entry into the roof and walls, which can cause mould growth.

The techniques we employ are non-abrasive, safeguarding your property’s appeal and aesthetics while ensuring functionality. The use of eco-friendly cleaning agents is a testament to our commitment to the environment and your home’s safety.

The glass or polycarbonate structure of the conservatory roof, while being a beautiful addition to your home, can be a magnet for dirt, algae, moss and lichen over time. Left untreated, these can impair the aesthetic appeal of your conservatory and even cause long-term damage.

We adopt a systematic approach to conservatory roof cleaning, beginning with a thorough inspection to assess the degree of contamination. This is followed by a gentle yet effective clean using specialist equipment that are harsh on dirt but gentle on your conservatory. We understand the delicate nature of conservatory roofs and take utmost care to avoid any scratches during the cleaning process.

Understanding the Role of Rain Gutters

Rain gutters, while often overlooked, play a key role in protecting our homes from water damage. These inconspicuous components of our homes are the first line of defense against the destructive power of uncontrolled water flow.

Gutters guide rainwater from our roofs straight to the ground, preventing it from seeping into the house’s foundations and
requiring repairs.

Gutters, however, don’t just protect the structural integrity of our homes. They also help prevent soil erosion around the house,
protect the landscaping and siding, and even prevent basement flooding.

Without gutters, the water falling off the roof can erode the soil around the house, which could lead to foundation issues down
the line.

How Do Rain Gutters and Downspouts Get Clogged?

A primary cause of clogging in Atherton gutters is the accumulation of leaves, twigs, and other natural debris. Over time, they build up and block the flow of water, causing an overflow.

Another common cause is the nesting of birds and small animals. They find the enclosed space of gutters quite inviting for setting up their homes. These nests can hinder the water flow, causing backups and overflows.

Gutters and downspouts can also get clogged due to the buildup of moss and algae. In the UK’s damp climate, these organisms can proliferate rapidly, filling the gutters and making them inefficient.

Lastly, gutters can get blocked due to poor maintenance. Over time, gutters can sag or become disjointed, leading to debris accumulation and water blockage.


Not only does regular gutter cleaning prevent water damage to your property, but it also extends the life of your gutters. The benefits are numerous and the consequences of neglect, can be considerable. Let’s look at why regular gutter cleaning is important:

  • Gutter Cleaning prevents Water Damage:  Regular gutter cleaning is crucial as it prevents water damage to the building, particularly to the foundation, basement, and walls, by ensuring rain water is properly diverted away.
  • Gutter Cleaning protects your Roof: By removing blockages, gutter cleaning protects the roof from water accumulation and subsequent leaks, thereby safeguarding the roof’s integrity and longevity.
  • Gutter Cleaning controls Pest Infestation: The process of gutter cleaning plays a key role in eliminating potential breeding grounds for insects, rodents, and birds.
  • Gutter Cleaning enhances Aesthetic Appeal: Clean gutters contribute significantly to the aesthetic appeal of a building, preventing the unsightly appearance of debris-filled rain gutters and maintaining property value.
  • Gutter Cleaning extends Guttering System Lifespan: Regular cleaning and maintenance of gutters extend their lifespan by preventing rusting, corrosion, and structural damage due to the weight of accumulated debris and standing water.

We can’t stress enough the importance of keeping a regular cleaning schedule for your gutters. It’s an investment that pays off in the long run, saving you from potential damages and additional expenses. Remember, the key to home maintenance is prevention, and your gutters are no exception.

Here are a few signs to look out for to identify that your gutters are blocked:

Gutter Cleaning Service Area For Atherton

Atherton is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in Greater Manchester, England and historically part of Lancashire. The town, including Hindsford, Howe Bridge and Hag Fold, is 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Bolton, 7 miles (11.3 km) east of Wigan, and 10 miles (16.1 km) northwest of Manchester. From the 17th century, for about 300 years, Atherton was known as Chowbent, which was frequently shortened to Bent, the town’s old nickname. During the Industrial Revolution, the town was a key part of the Manchester Coalfield.

Atherton was associated with coal mining and nail manufacture from the 14th century, encouraged by outcropping coal seams. At the beginning of the 20th century, the town was described as “the centre of a district of collieries, cotton mills and iron-works, which cover the surface of the country with their inartistic buildings and surroundings, and are linked together by the equally unlovely dwellings of the people”. Atherton’s last deep coal mine closed in 1966, and the last cotton mill closed in 1999. Today the town is the third-largest retail centre in the Borough of Wigan; almost 20% of those employed in the area work in the wholesale and retail trades, although there is still some significant manufacturing industry in the town.

Evidence has been discovered of a Roman road passing through the area, on the ancient route between Coccium (Wigan) and Mamucium (Manchester). Following the Anglo-Saxon invasion of England, Atherton, which is built on and around seven brooks, became part of the manor of Warrington until the Norman conquest, when it became a township or vill in the ancient parish of Leigh. Since 1974 the town has been part of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, a local government district of the Metropolitan County of Greater Manchester and since 2010 it has been part of the Bolton West parliamentary constituency.
