Gutter Cleaning is Important, But So is Your Safety

By November 11, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

Clogged gutters are more than just a rainy-day headache. If left unattended over the long run, they can damage your roof and eventually, the rest of your home. Rainwater spilling over the sides of your gutter will find its way into the structure, causing problems ranging from mold and mildew growth, to bird and insect infestations, to structural damage to your roof and foundation.

United States: the Leader in Ladder-Related Deaths

It’s important to clean out your gutters regularly, but don’t risk your safety! Did you know that the U.S. is the world leader in ladder-related deaths? More than 8.9 million visits are made to the emergency room every year for fall-related injuries, and more than 25,000 falls in 2009 alone resulted in death. The vast majority of fatalities are adults age 65 and older. Don’t worry; you don’t have to risk your life just to clean your gutters!

Don’t Be a Statistic

Stay safe and spare yourself the expense of hiring someone else for gutter cleaning when you get a professional to install Gutter Helmet®, the permanent solution to clogged gutters. When rain hits Gutter Helmet’s textured, ribbed surface, the water flows over the patented nose-forward curve and is directed into the gutter, while leaves and debris stay out. Since Gutter Helmet® was introduced in 1981, more than 65 million feet have been installed – enough to go halfway around the world!

Compared to other similar systems that use a half-inch gap, the 3/8-inch gap in Gutter Helmet® offers maximum water flow but keeps everything else out – yet Gutter Helmet® can handle more than 22 inches of rain per hour. That’s double the highest amount of rainfall ever recorded in the United States.

With seven design patents and 257 certified installers nationwide, you can see why Gutter Helmet® is America’s #1 choice in gutter protection. To learn more about this innovative system and arrange for a no-obligation consultation with your local dealer, call (800) 824-3772 today.
