4 Tools for More Efficient Gutter Cleaning

By December 10, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

Gutters keep water away from your home, and to do this job properly, they must be free of clogs and debris. Many homeowners know the importance of keeping their gutters clean, but may not be keen on climbing up a ladder to do so.

Carolina Gutter Helmet is the trusted contractor for all types of gutters in Greer SC, and the local area. In this article, we look at several tools on the market today that allow you to clean your gutters without climbing a ladder. Here are four of them:

1. Power Washer – Blast layers of dirt and debris away with the fine-spray nozzle of your power washer. This tool is particularly useful for clearing clogged downspouts. Keep in mind that this cleaning can get messy, so be ready to rinse the roof and exterior walls afterward.

2. Leaf Blower – This comes with an attached nozzle designed to discharge a narrow stream of air at the gutter. Simply point the nozzle and blow out obstructions as you go. Be careful not to blow leaves into the downspout.

3. Garden Hose – If there isn’t too much clogged in your gutters, you can clean them with a garden hose. Fasten a rigid tube with a curved end to the hose so you won’t have to use a ladder. Begin at the point farthest from the downspout and flush through the channel, then remove lingering debris by hand before it dries out.

4. Wet/Dry Vacuum – You can experiment with a wet/dry vacuum to remove dense or thick debris from your gutter. Sometimes, the grime may be too stuck to the surface so you’ll need to wet it before it succumbs to the vacuum.

These tools can help keep your gutters in tiptop condition, but we believe there’s a better solution.
