One of the most common causes of damp, mould and rot in commercial property is damaged guttering. If left for too long, damp can pose a serious health risk to employees, which can subsequently impact the productivity of the workforce. Simply, it is a problem that you shouldn’t ignore.  Damaged guttering can have a similar effect to blockages. If left untreated, moisture can enter the property and result in problems that are difficult to fix. However, unlike blockages, damage can occur at any time. Primarily, it is attributed to natural wear and tear, but improper gutter maintenance can be a substantial contributing factor. Diagnosing gutter damage is easy – have a look at your commercial property when it’s raining. If water seems to be overflowing from your gutters or running down your walls, then it’s a good indication that something is preventing your gutters from working effectively.
