4 Simple But Effective Gutter Cleaning Tips You Can Try

  1. Get the Proper Tools – You need a sturdy pair of work gloves and a gutter scoop to clean your gutters. Get several trash bags to keep cleanup simple and a bucket you can hang from the underside of your ladder.

  1. Use a Strong Ladder – Work on a sturdy and safe ladder in excellent condition. Climbing up and cleaning your gutters means that you are taking a risk, so minimize that risk as much as possible. Your ladder should also be able to support your weight and be completely stable when you use it.

  1. Ask a Professional to Clean Your Gutters – This is the best choice if you want to stay safe and if you don’t have the time or energy to perform this messy and tiring chore. A professional has safety equipment and all the necessary tools to keep your gutters clean and damage-free. They can also complete the job quicker and more efficiently than you.

  1. Install a Gutter Protection System – This is the long-lasting solution to all of your gutter cleaning woes. Gutter Helmet can reduce your gutters’ cleaning needs by preventing debris from entering your gutters and causing clogs in the first place. It does this by completely covering your gutters while still allowing water through.
