During fall, the value of having the best gutter covers becomes more and more apparent. Nobody looks forward to getting up a ladder and clearing away the leaves, twigs and other debris that could clog up your gutters. Unfortunately, it’s an important chore that you cannot neglect.

Most homeowners think about gutter cleaning as simply removing the muck inside their gutters and downspouts. While this is the main part of the job, there are also other important aspects to keep in mind. Here are some of the best gutter cleaning practices from our experts at ABC Seamless Siding to help you get your gutters ready for the season.

Hire a Professional

Clearing away the debris inside your gutters seems like a quick and easy job for one afternoon. However, there are many risks involved in this work including falling accidents, hand injuries and inefficient cleaning results. The best way to make sure your gutters and downspouts are thoroughly free of any potential problems is to hire a local gutter specialist to do the job for you.

Improper or Incorrect Equipment

As you’re clearing away leaves from your gutters by hand, there might be sharp objects hidden underneath. Wearing a glove can help prevent cuts, but only if it is the right kind of glove. Additionally, the ladder you’re using must also be secured properly to prevent slipping and other accidents. Of course, all these dangers can be avoided by simply entrusting the job to a professional.

Install a Gutter Protection System

You can do away with cleaning your gutters entirely by finding and using the best gutter covers for protection. These add-ons “shield” your troughs from any debris that might get into them without obstructing the flow of rainwater.
