Tools That Make Cleaning Your Gutters a Snap

By November 17, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Your gutters protect your home from water damage by redirecting rainwater to your downspouts. The downspouts then carry that water away from your home, preventing roof leaks, foundation damage, siding damage and more. That’s why it is important to keep your gutters clean. Here we’ll talk about tools that will make cleaning your gutters easier.

The Old-Fashioned Method

There are two methods to cleaning your gutters. The first is the old-fashioned way: by climbing up to the gutters yourself. You need to start with a sturdy ladder that’s the right length to reach to highest roofline of your home. You may also want to invest in a specialized gutter scoop. These scoops are the perfect size for the gutter opening, so you can remove debris easily. Finally, make sure you have a good quality hose to rinse your gutters afterwards.

Cleaning Your Gutters from the Ground

You can also clean your gutters from the ground. To do this, you need a pressure washer with extensions or attachments that extend the nozzle up to your gutters. Consider using a special nozzle with two openings on each side for faster cleaning.

Keep Your Gutters Clean Permanently

You can also purchase a product that will stop clogs before they even form, greatly reducing the need for cleaning. Gutter Helmet® is one of the best gutter protection systems in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It completely covers your gutters, keeping out leaves and debris. Gutter Helmet works by using the principle of surface tension. Even though Gutter Helmet extends over the roof edge, water flows over and into your gutters thanks to the patented nose-forward design. Meanwhile, debris and leaves just fall off or blow off the roof.

Gutter Helmet significantly reduces gutter maintenance requirements and ensures your gutters will perform well in any weather condition. Gutter Helmet by Lednor Home Solutions has helped Western Pennsylvania residents for over 30 years. If you’re interested, we can install the Gutter Helmet system on your home in one day.
