Jodi Mohrmann defends that “gutter cleaning is one maintenance task that should never be overlooked” for the “lack of maintenance can cause major problems.. and lead to expensive repairs when left untreated.”

Angie Hicks, founder of Angie’s List, adds that “a lot of times consumers tend to skip over [gutter cleaning and] that can be dangerous because your gutters are your first line of defense against water problems in your home.”

Mohrmann advocates gutter cleaning through the traditional way of “getting on a ladder and scooping out the leaves.” However, she also acknowledges that gutter protection like a gutter guard system “may offer less maintenance.”

The traditional practice of climbing a ladder to clean your gutters may be a foolproof way of ensuring the cleanliness of your gutters. The problem, of course, is the impracticality. Not only is it dangerous to hover on a ladder and deal with harmful substances unprofessionally, it also requires biannual attention, which means giving up precious weekend hours.

A suitable alternative would be gutter guards. In whatever season, a gutter protection system helps keep leaves and debris out of your gutters and helps you stay on the ground. Clogged gutters have a higher chance of being prevented as much as accidents and injuries from attempting to unclog them.
