Good reasons to invest in a gutter guard for your Seymour home
Seymour is a fantastic place to live but being surrounded by bushland means we always must be vigilant about the dangers of bushfires. Keeping our homes safe is important, and one of the most important tasks to be done is to make sure combustible fuels such as leaves and twigs don’t accumulate around the home exterior.
This is easily achieved at ground level, but many home owners forget about the roof of their home. Sure, occasionally they’ll get up a ladder and clean out the gutters (a most unpleasant but necessary task for unprotected guttering) and this helps, but it’s not absolute protection unless you’re cleaning out those gutters every day.
Nobody has the time or inclination to do that, so the best solution is to buy a gutter guard. This device stops leaves and other similar contaminants from accumulating in your guttering. This means clean gutters, no more dangerous and unpleasant gutter cleaning chores, and reduced fire risk. Everything about gutter guards is good.
Why leaves are so troublesome
Every tree needs to occasionally shed its leaves. There aren’t enough koalas left to naturally take care of the problem for us, so that’s the reason you need to constantly rake up piles of leaves and keep your gutters clean.
Raking isn’t generally too much of a bother – especially if you pay someone else to do it – but it’s a different scenario when it comes to cleaning out guttering. This task requires you to climb up a ladder, which can be unsafe no matter how careful you are. Once you’re up there, you’ve then got to scrub and scrape to get rid of all the dirt, while also holding your breath so you won’t inhale the noxious stench emanating from the leaf masses.
Now, leaf masses are a particular annoyance. As stated above, when they’re dry, they contribute to the fire risk. Actually, they can even slightly increase your fire risk even if they’re wet.
An interesting thing about wet leaf masses is they have the potential to spontaneously combust as they dry out. What happens is that microbes fermenting inside the mass generate heat. Once the moisture content of the leaf mass drops to around 25%, the conditions can be just right for the mass to burst into flames.
Another problem of wet leaf masses is they attract more leaves. Over time, the masses can grow very large, and that creates weight (the mass also can absorb many times its own weight in water). Eventually it’s possible for the mass to become so heavy it causes the guttering to pull away from the roof. This is costly to fix and obviously annoying.
