Blog Category: Gutter Cleaning

Cleaning Gutters can be a hectic job most of the times, especially when you’re doing it by hand or climbing up a ladder. However, using efficient and safe tools can speed up the process. Some methods that are used for cleaning gutters include: climbing up a ladder and cleaning, flushing water, gutter cleaning wand, gutter wedges, garden hose and last, blowing. This article discusses why blowing gutters is the best method for gutter cleaning.

Twigs and other Debris

If you have leaves and twigs stuck in the gutter, you can use a leaf blower to clean it. However, climb up a ladder which is dangerous. You need to make sure you’re doing it the safe way. It is better if you call professionals for help.

If you’re using a leaf blower, it’s usually attached with a nozzle tat releases air pressure. This air technique is perfect if you wish to remove the leaves and twigs that are stuck in the gutter. However, you need to make sure that the leaves are not blown into the downspouts.

You can position the ladder in a way that allows you to gradually remove the obstructions that comes in the way towards the downspout.

Downside to gutter cleaning by hand

Therefore, instead of doing it with your bare hands (which is dangerous) you can use the leaf blower technique for gutter cleaning. However, you must be careful while using the ladder. Use gloves and goggles to protect your hands and eyes as gutters comprise  bacteria, dirt, sometimes insects.

Thus, blowing is the best method for gutter cleaning. It does not take up much time and is efficient. You can do it yourself, but better call a professional to avoid the risk.
