3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Clean Gutters Yourself

By November 18, 2015No Comments

Your gutters protect your home from the adverse effects of rainwater. To work, they have to be clean and clear of leaves and debris. Unfortunately, the open nature of gutters means that they can become clogged rather easily. Some homeowners choose to clean their gutters on their own. Gutter Helmet® by Harry Helmet™ looks at the risks of do-it-yourself gutter cleaning and suggests a better solution.

1. It’s risky business.
Just reaching your gutters can be tricky. There is the chance you could fall off your ladder, especially if you use a ladder that is too short or not in good condition. Even if you get up there safely, one wrong move can get you off-balance, resulting in a fall. While clearing gutters is a priority, it isn’t worth risking your safety and health.

2. It’s a professional job.
A better option is to hire professionals to do the job. After all, contractors have extensive experience hanging gutters in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, and are well-equipped to handle gutter work. Even if you do get the same professional tools, you could end up damaging your gutters if you don’t have the know-how to use them properly.

3. It’s not a long-term solution.
Lastly, even if you can clean your gutters yourself, this is not a lasting solution to clogged gutters. Eventually you will have to repeat the same risky process. The best way to go is to get Gutter Helmet. This gutter protection system fits over the width of your gutter, covering it completely, so leaves and debris fall off the edge or are blown away. Through surface adhesion, water is drawn into the small slit under Gutter Helmet’s protruding nose. This allows it to perform without ever becoming clogged.

Investing in Gutter Helmet will spare you health and safety risks, as well as the cost of constant maintenance. It’s also an aesthetic improvement for your home, lending your roofline a finished look.
