AFTER a dry winter and forecasts of a warm spring, it is predicted that the Goulburn Valley will see a severe bushfire risk this season. Experts are warning that people should begin preparing early to protect their homes.

Fire departments recommend that you have your gutters regularly cleaned to help protect your home and reduce the spread of fire.

Brocq from Gutter-Vac Shepparton said, “Scarily, 90% of homes in a bushfire are lost to an ember attack, whereby spot fires are ignited by burning twigs, leaves or pieces of bark that are carried by the wind. These embers can land in a home’s guttering and ignite the property if the gutters have not been well maintained. Vacuum cleaning your gutters prior to bushfire season is highly recommended in protecting your home.”

Be proactive and get your home prepared today. Call the gutter cleaning specialists on 0408 413 416.
