Safety Tips Before You Clean Your Gutters

By October 28, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters help gather rain and direct it to the downspout, away from your home’s foundation. They help prevent water from degrading the quality of both your siding and roof. Regular gutter cleaning can ensure that the system can do its job for a long time, but it is important that you take safety steps before you clean your gutters. Here are some safety tips from Gutter Helmet® of Northern Ohio.

Choose a Stable Ladder
Always tell someone that you will be using a ladder to work on your roof and gutters before starting the job. It’s ideal to have a spotter hold the ladder to keep it stable, while you climb up. Choose a four-legged ladder if you are climbing up a single-story structure, and an extension ladder for taller structures. Better yet, contact us to help you clean your gutters. This way, you do not have to put yourself at risk. After all, the job is best left to the pros.

Wear Protective Gear
There can be sharp debris in and around your gutters. Wearing heavy-duty gloves is a must to protect your hands while you clean them. Wearing safety goggles or glasses will also protect your eyes from the splatters that come with cleaning gutters. You don’t need to worry about these things when you hire Gutter Helmet! We have years of experience working on gutters and have the right gear to get the job done safely.

Wear Rubber-Soled Shoes
Rubber-soled shoes offer traction to keep you safe while you work on a ladder. Avoid sandals and open-toed shoes.

It is vital to take these steps to ensure your safety when climbing up your roof. You can rely on Gutter Helmet of Northern Ohio to help address your gutter needs.
