Tools That Can Speed Up Gutter Cleaning

By November 19, 2015October 16th, 2023No Comments

Keeping your gutters clean helps keep them from clogging, which can cause major problems for your home if left unchecked. Nonetheless, gutter cleaning can be tiring and even put you in danger. It is vital that you have tools that can help you clean your gutters safely and more efficiently. Gutter Helmet® of Northern Ohio has some suggestions for tools that will make the job easier.


There is an array of ladders designed to make climbing safer. Extension ladders are necessary to clean gutters on second floors, so make sure you select a ladder that extends far past the edge of the roofline to avoid the need to reach and potentially throw yourself off-balance. There are also four-legged step ladders that are safe to use for a single-story building. Check to be sure the ladder has the proper load capacity before climbing.

Power Washer

Using a power washer is an easy way of cleaning your gutters. By aiming the spray down your gutters, you can quickly flush out clogged debris. This can also remove grit build-up from your roof. You can also use a power washer to clean the exterior of your gutters to prevent unsightly stains. Make sure to read the instruction manual before you start using this tool.

Gutter Cleaning Kit

This kit comes with a shovel that will fit in your gutters and a hand rake that can get rid of leaves and pine needles. You can attach the hand rake to a pole to help you clean hard-to-reach areas of a gutter system.

Gutter Helmet®

Skip gutter cleaning entirely when you install Gutter Helmet® on your home. This gutter guard will keep your gutters free of debris. It is designed with a ribbed surface that allows water to flow smoothly into the gutter and to the downspout. Rest assured that it will keep you from spending any more valuable time cleaning your gutters.
