Beware of Cheap Gutter Cleaners in Melbourne

If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is!


Whether you’re buying a TV or hiring a tradesperson, you’ll never be able to get the best products or services for the lowest price. What’s more, you should be dubious of anything that claims to be the best and the cheapest!

When it comes to gutter cleaning, there are many risks involved in using bargain-basement services. As a homeowner, you’re better off choosing your gutter cleaners based on the value of their services, not the price.

With that in mind, here are some of the dangers of getting a cheap gutter cleaning.

How cheap gutter cleaners cut corners

People who provide cheap gutter cleaning services are more than likely to cut corners on your job to save themselves some time and effort.

Some of the corner cutting tactics to look out for include:

  • Not cleaning gutters that are hard to access.
  • Throwing gutter waste onto the building, ground, or garden.
  • Not providing before and after pictures to hide a poor cleaning job.


While a cheap gutter cleaning may not cost you much, you won’t get good value for your money by paying anything for a job done poorly.

Safety hazards and property damage

Even worse than an ineffective gutter cleaning is the potential for cheap gutter cleaners to damage your property or even injure themselves.

Cheap gutter cleaners are unlikely to be insured against property damage or injury. Furthermore, if they don’t follow the correct OH&S practices for working at heights, then the risks of property damage and injury will be even higher.
