Residential Gutter Cleaning in Suffolk – Why call in the professionals?
The symptoms of a failing rainwater system on your home can be relatively easy to spot – icicles hanging from a gutter joint in winter, dripping guttering, pooling near your foundations, vegetation sprouting by the roofline – but doing something about them is a different matter.
Roofline rainwater systems are tricky to get at and can be easily damaged if you don’t know what you are doing. Often very high up, attempting to reach them by ladder can be very unsafe.
At Falcon Maintenance Ipswich, our gutter cleaning operatives are fully trained, insured and skilled in the use of hi-tech, long-reach gutter cleaning vacuum technologies.
We can make appropriate checks and assessments and carry out work safely, always taking care to avoid any damage to your property.

What factors affect gutter cleaning costs?
At Falcon Maintenance gutter cleaning services Ipswich, the total gutter cleaning cost will be influenced by the following:
- The type and shape of the property - this impacts on the amount of guttering to be cleared or cleaned and often the accessibility of the channels to be cleared.
- The location/ height of your guttering system – guttering systems on single storey homes may be more accessible than town houses with several floors.
- The state of your rainwater system – if parts of your guttering are failing through age or damage, they may require repair or total replacement.
When should I have my home’s roof gutters cleaned?
It’s a good idea to keep an eye on how your gutters are performing during the different seasons, but getting gutters cleared out either side of autumn/ winter is best practice.
Leaves can accumulate and block gutters very quickly in autumn and allowing gutters to clog up can lead to real issues if there is a cold snap in winter. If ice forms in the blocked gutter channel and edge of your roof, water will dam up when the snow melts and be prevented from draining away.
