Ignoring a clogged gutter system can lead to all sorts of problems, including roof leaks, stained siding and damaged landscaping. It’s important to keep your gutters clear, either by hiring a gutter guard installer to install gutter protection or by cleaning your gutters regularly. Here are some tips to help you save time in making your gutters clog-free.

Time-Saving Tips on Keeping Your Gutters Clog-Free

Prepare Your Tools if You’re Cleaning Your Gutters Yourself

You’ll need the right equipment if you wish to clean your gutters yourself. You’ll need a shirt with long, but not too-loose sleeves, rubber gloves, a small plastic scoop and a good extendable ladder. Your ladder should have standoff stabilizers to protect your gutters while you’re climbing. It’s also better if you have someone on the ground to support the ladder. Prepare a plastic tarp on your lawn, so you can drop the gutter gunk directly onto it.

Hire a Reputable Company to Clean Your Gutters for You

Not everyone has the time or inclination to clean their gutters themselves. After all, it’s hard work, and it takes a lot of time. If you wish to hire a professional to clean your gutters for you, make sure to hire the right company. Take a look at their reviews, and if possible, ask for local references. It’s better to work with an established company because they are more likely to have the skills and experience.

Install a Gutter Protection System

The best solution to clogged gutters, however, is installing a good gutter protection system. A gutter protection system will prevent leaves, debris and dirt from entering your gutters in the first place. No leaves and debris mean no gutter clogs can form. You’ll save a lot of time, and you’ll no longer need to worry about your gutters again. We recommend installing Gutter Helmet® because of this product’s proven performance. It can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour while still keeping your gutters clog-free.
