The Dangers of Gutter Cleaning: How Gutter Covers Can Help

By August 26, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters are essential to the overall performance of your entire roofing system. They need to be clog-free to function properly, but keeping leaves, twigs and debris out of your gutters entails frequent cleaning. While an important maintenance task, it does come with a few dangers.

Not Entirely Risk-Free

Gutter cleaning often involves going up ladders, standing for long periods and long reaches. These activities become more difficult as we age. Sometimes they can cause physical discomfort, such as shoulder pain, cramps and aching joints. Dizziness and vertigo may occur as well.

If you have existing health issues, you should no longer be cleaning your gutters on your own. The good news is you no longer have to! New products on the market help you do away with frequent cleaning altogether.

Help From Gutter Covers

Some manufacturers recognize the safety and health risks involved in gutter cleaning and have designed gutter protection systems. These are specifically engineered to keep leaves and debris from falling into gutter troughs. Mounting these over your existing gutters will save you significant time and effort, now and for years to come.

Cover-type systems function as filters. Gutter Helmet®, for instance, has a nose-forward design that lets leaves and other debris slide off its textured surface easily. At the end of the nose, a narrow slit (only 3/8” wide) lets in only water, so you won’t get clogs or clumps inside the troughs.
