Prevent Gutter Cleaning Risks: Tips from Seamless Exterior

By July 15, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Cleaning gutters is a tedious task, but it is necessary. It entails climbing up ladders, working under the sun, and picking up debris. Keep in mind, however, that it comes with some risks.

Here are some of the most common health issues associated with gutter cleaning.

1.       Back and muscle pains – You can run the risk of back pain when you stand too long when cleaning your gutters. To avoid this, call professionals like Seamless Exteriors to do the cleaning for you. We have years of experience in cleaning gutters and know the best practices that can lessen the cleaning time.
2.       Cuts on the skin – While cleaning your gutters, you might experience cuts to your skin due to sharp edges. To avoid sustaining open wounds, hire a local contractor. They are equipped with the proper safety tools like goggles and gloves that will help them avoid any harm.
3.       Sun Burn and Poisoning– Cleaning gutters is usually done on a sunny day, and it takes a lot of time. When you stand under the sun for too long, you can develop a sun burn, or even sun poisoning. For a maintenance-free gutter all year long, get in touch with Seamless Exteriors to install gutter guards. Protective systems can filter debris and prevent any clogging in your downspouts.

Gutter guard installation in Cedar Falls IA can eliminate all of the aforementioned risks. It can also prevent property damage such as cracked foundations, mold, mildew, and rotten wood. Seamless Exterior offers one of the best gutter protection systems in the US: Gutter Helmet®.

Gutter Helmet is a protective cap that is installed over your existing gutters. It has a textured surface that allows rainwater to cling to the surface while it flows downwards. As the water flows to your gutters, leaves and other debris fall from the edge of the gutter guard and onto the ground.

With Gutter Helmet from Seamless Exterior, you won’t have to worry about back pains or heat stroke just to clean your gutters. You can be sure your gutters are clog-free any time of the year.
