Plants need care and look good when they grow well in your garden. Where they definitely don’t look good are in the other parts of your home. Gutters and drain pipes are one of them. Let us help you answer what to do when a plant grows in your drain pipe.
Mr Gutter Cleaning was asked to visit a family who could see a plant growing from their drainpipe.
Matt, Mr Gutter Cleanings vacuum gutter cleaner was shocked to find a weed thriving in their drain pipe. The root of this plant was a clear indication of just how long this plant has been living there. He then started to further inspect the problem to hart out the best solution.
Mr Gutter Cleanings team was able to pull it out from the pipe and finally let the water flow smoothly through the gutters.
If a plant gets trapped in the downpipe it enables rainfall to be trapped in the gutters eventually leading to roof damage. That’s why it is recommended to get gutters cleaned thoroughly every 6 months.
The customer seemed relieved in knowing that their gutter was finally back to how it should be. Another successful job and a happy customer for Mr Gutter Cleaning. If you find yourself wondering what to do with the plant growing in your drain pipe, call us at 131149.
