Cleaning the gutters has to be one of the least exciting home maintenance tasks on every homeowner’s to-do list. However, keeping your gutters free of organic debris, such as leaves and twigs, is crucial to keeping your home in good shape. This is why gutter cleaning must be done regularly.



In this article, Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc., your trusted local gutter company with the best Gutter Helmet® reviews,  shares how you can make gutter cleaning easier and safer by eliminating ladder use.

Tools and Equipment

The good news is that you most likely already have all the tools you need in your garden shed. If you’ve got a leaf blower, outdoors vacuum, power washer, or a garden hose, then you’re ready for your ladderless gutter cleaning venture. Don’t have these tools at hand? Your favorite neighbor probably has one you can borrow.

Once you get your hands on any of the aforementioned tools, it’s time to get to work. If you got a leaf blower, you’ll need some nozzle attachments and extension poles. Standard leaf blowers come with these attachments, but you can purchase them separately. Position yourself at the end of one side of your gutter and blow the debris. Note that this method only works for dry leaves and the like.

For wet debris, your best bet is a power washer with a telescoping wand and U-shaped attachment, which you can buy from your local hardware store. Don’t forget to wear a raincoat and goggles for protection.

Prevention is Always Better Than Cure

The best way to clean your gutters without a ladder is to never have to clean your gutters in the first place. Whatever your reason for not wanting to clean the gutters, Gutter Helmet is the right product for you.
