Bushfire Preparation

Have you had a look at your gutters recently? Summer is approaching and that means we will be entering the bushfire season and the time we should be getting our bushfire preparation started.

Thankfully the predictions for Spring are below normal fire potential across the ACT and NSW as a result of vegetation recovering from the 2019-20 bushfire season, however it is important to prepare and protect your homes now as we all know how unpredictable the weather can be.

Start your bushfire preparation now to avoid a last minute rush to clean gutters in the event of a nearby fire. The last thing you want to be doing it standing on a ladder, knowing there is a fire threatening your home.

Clean Your Gutters

The NSW Fire Service recommends one of the best ways to prepare and protect your homes is bu cleaning your gutters. They are out of sight, and tend to collect leaves and sticks over the years making them the perfect place for a fire to start from flying embers, but they are easily cleaned up and maintained to help protect your home coming into Summer.

If you don’t have time to get up on the roof, then there are local businesses you can use such as Blown Away Gutter Cleaning. You can book a free quote on their website.
