Gutter debris can quite possibly be one of the most annoying outdoor maintenance tasks for both business and domestic properties. In addition to being potentially dangerous to clean if your gutters are high up, gutter cleaning can be a tedious and difficult job if debris is packed tight, clogged or needs a good scrub.
High access equipment like a Skyvac, can be beneficial for removing debris and residue from gutters. Plus thanks to its long reach, high-powered suction, its easy-to-clean and disposal methodology makes the cleaning of gutters on tall buildings a breeze.
We are proud to offer this innovative and thorough technology here at KJC Drainage, and in this guide we will tell you all about the benefits of considering our Skyvac cleaning services.
What is a Skyvac?
Skyvac is a portable, state-of-the-art cleaning system that cleans gutters from the safety of the ground.
It can be used at residential homes or other businesses like hospitals or fire stations and negates the need for scaffolding, ladders, or cherry pickers.
A Skyvac gutter machine is a powerful wet and dry vacuum that combines super strong, lightweight carbon fibre poles with the addition of a Skycam, which is an inspection camera with a monitor that helps to ensure pinpoint precision when cleaning.
Simple to use, all gutter debris is vacuumed into an internal basket through a range of accessories for the unit, and once cleaning is complete, the internal basket is emptied.
Each pole is about 1.5 metres long and can reach up to four stories high, even when positioned over awkward obstacles like conservatories. And when it comes to roof cleaning, a Skyvac gutter maintenance system is also safe to use around roof tiles, so you can rest easy and with confidence knowing that if the vacuum were to to touch, clip or hit them, there would be no damage done.
How does gutter cleaning with a Skyvac work?
The sight of green or yellow moss on your roof, and dirty, clogged up gutters, not only look unsightly but can also prevent rainwater from draining away efficiently. Instead gutters begin to overflow, and excess water starts to seep into external cracks around your property, which in turn, can lead to damp appearing inside of your home.
Skyvac gutter cleaning equipment essentially works by vacuuming along the inside of gutters with a high level of suction that lifts both wet and dry debris with complete effectiveness into a secure internal basket.
This light and durable commercial equipment, has a multi-directional head that can be positioned to remove objects such as moss, leafs and twigs, as well as heavy growth from the natural environment that has built up over time.
Best of all, in addition to gutters and roof tiles, a Skyvac can also be used for internal cleaning for areas such as high level ceilings that may need a wash, as it comes with a range of commercial tools for any application.
