Hi folks and welcome to the fourth instalment of the Sparkle Window Cleaning newsletter – a bit behind schedule as my son Noah and I took a little road trip up to the Capricorn Caves near Rockhampton.
The pic above is in Marodian Qld and I must admit it was a complete accident that we found ourselves there as I might just have taken a wrong turn. As you can see, there is not much need for a window cleaner in the locality, although I did get a solar panel enquiry from someone in Bundaberg.
All that driving got me thinking about what news I should share with you all so please read on and find out what’s important in the world of home maintenance.
The warmer climate we experienced up in Central Queensland reminded me that summer is on the way and with it, fire season.
This is one good good reason to make sure your gutters are clear as loose leaf matter can be extremely flammable.
We then hit storm season and there’s reason number two – with heavy downpours, even clear gutters can be overwhelmed, backup and over flow, meaning the water has to go somewhere and sometimes it can enter roof spaces and create problems there.
But did you also know that leaf matter in your gutters also creates a perfect habitat for insects, spiders and especially cockroaches as I find out when they scurry under my shoes.
This blockage had become pure mud and must have been developing over years
If your Property is surrounded by trees then an annual gutter clean is a must. Even if you have gutter guard, you will find that leaves breakdown and then leave a sludge in the bottom of the gutter which over time can cause blockages and encourage corrosion of the metal.
Its not the most exciting subject to talk about but rest assured, when we clean gutters we clear the debris and then flush with water, which means you can be confident that all gutters are running freely and the downspouts are clear too.

Crikey Tim, I hear you say, this is a belter of a news letter, you sure have some exciting topics..
The photo below is of a crimsafe flyscreen that is fitted to the inside of a window and yet it is damaged and corroded beyond repair. this could have been prevented by regular flushing, or at the very least, wiping the screen.
Any metal items are susceptible to corrosion, window frames, colorbond roofs, exposed steel beams, if left uncared for then they will deteriorate eventually.
Fresh water is highly effective in keeping your property in tip top condition for as long as possible. Rinsing, and hosing or Pressure Washing will keep rust at bay and save a whole heap of time and effort down the line and of course this is a service that we offer.
Green tree frogs are great to see around the house and this one thought he’d help out with the laundry.
