Here’s to Worry-free Gutters with the Best Gutter Guards in the Market

By May 23, 2014October 17th, 2023No Comments

Gutter cleaning is essential to home maintenance. They should be cleaned regularly of debris like leaves and needles from trees to prevent roof problems such as leaks or rotting. A clean gutter also prevents blockages thus providing proper drainage on your roof. However, homeowners who try to perform these maintenance tasks are at risk of injuries, especially the elderly and the untrained. In fact, a study from the Oregon Health and Science University confirmed this:

Seniors are at highest risk for injuries when they fall off ladders during fall months, as they clean their gutters, hang holiday lights, or go about other maintenance activities, according to a study by an Oregon Health & Science University’s Trauma Program.

The study showed that the main activities requiring ladder use were house painting, maintenance, gutter repair, landscaping and construction.

A case of this exact accident was reported by NBC Chicago involving an old woman:

A falling tree injured a woman in her 70s who was cleaning out her gutters Saturday morning in the Gresham neighborhood.

Neighbors said the woman was out clearing her gutter when the tree snapped, and appeared to have landed on her legs.
