4 Tools for Faster & More Efficient Gutter Cleaning

By November 18, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters keep water moving away from your house and must be kept free of dirt and clogs. Most homeowners understand the value of having clean gutters, but may not be so keen to climb up a ladder. Gutter Helmet® of Long Island is the trusted contractor for gutter shields in Bohemia, New York. In this blog post, we look at four tools that allow you to clean your gutters faster and more efficiently.

1. Leaf blower. This nifty device comes with an attachable nozzle for discharging a narrow blast of air into a gutter. Simply point the nozzle and blow out debris as you go, but be careful not to blow leaves into the downspout.

2. Power washer. Use the fine-spray nozzle of your power washer to flush layers of dirt and debris away. This machine is also useful for clearing clogged downspouts. Keep in mind that cleaning can get messy, so be prepared to rinse off your roof and siding afterward.

3. Garden hose. If there isn’t too much blockage in your gutters, you can use a garden hose to clean them out. Start at the spot farthest from the downspout and flush water through the gutter. Make sure you remove any remaining debris by hand before the gutter dries out.

4. Wet/dry vacuum. You can make use of this tool to remove serious clogs from a gutter.
