Back in 2008 Mark Blundell started Aquafed, primarily as a window cleaning, pressure washing and gutter cleaning company. Until he saw a gutter vacuum he was typically carrying out gutter cleaning the traditional way from a ladder.
He researched the various gutter cleaning systems on the market with the intention to purchase, though all of them seemed to be very expensive for what the were and inadequate in tools for the task required.
With this, Mark created his own system and once that testing was complete, he firmly believed that he had come up with an efficient system that would not only rival others but would strongly hold it’s place on the market for the good of the industry.
This was the beginning of Gutter Vacuum Systems Ltd.
Growing the Product Range
With extensive first hand experience in the exterior cleaning industry, Gutter Vacuum Systems continue to research, develop and pioneer innovative equipment to bring you exceptional products.
Our aerospace aluminium gutter cleaning poles have been engineered to become lighter for you whilst still remaining strong, they are in fact the lightest on the market with a full 20ft set up weighing under 5 kilos. We introduced quick release clamps for speed of setting up. This was a great idea as you can tell as our competitors have introduced this with their systems too!
In addition to manufacturing aerospace aluminium poles for you, we have added to our range, 100% carbon fibre poles remaining with the 51mm diameter providing you strength and durability on lighter cleans. With our innovative development we have manufactured a unique range of accessories so that you can kit your gutter clearing service with the right tools needed to increase your efficiency.
2020 was a challenging year in many ways. Faced with the global pandemic which affected our production lines, we also overcame supplier issues during that time too. However, through adversity we have grown from strength to strength receiving exemplary reviews and providing more and more businesses with full systems.
We upgraded our existing vacuums for you too and in the summer of 2020 we also proudly became Trading Standards “Buy with Confidence” Approved.
We continue to strive to provide you with unrivalled customer service, unique products to enhance your business and first hand extensive user experience by our friendly team to give you the best advice on equipment and technique.
