Cleaning Your Gutters

guttersCleaning the gutters isn’t the most enjoyable task around the house, but it’s definitely an important one. Clogged gutters spell all kinds of damage: debris can house bugs and pests, and water that doesn’t drain properly can build up and cause damage to your roof. These tips and tools will help make the task more manageable.

Garbage/Canvas Bags:

Don’t just throw the debris onto the ground; that creates another task for later. Fasten your bag to your ladder for ease of access and to free up your hands for cleaning.

Thick Gloves:

If your bare hands are exposed, sharp metal edges can cut them up pretty bad. Be sure to take the time to choose the gloves that are most comfortable to you and fit for the job.

Gutter Scoop:

If you don’t want to use your hands, a gutter scoop is the tool for you. It resembles a spade and fits into the gutter for easy clearing.

Gutter Guards:

Instead of cleaning your gutters, why not just keep them from getting clogged? That’s where gutter guards come in. They stop debris from building up.
