Keeping Your Gutters Clear

gutters in the rainAll gutters need to be kept clean: it’s an integral part of house maintenance. Gutters that are full of debris can cause water to pool on your roof, and can house pests and insects that cause damage. Here are some tools and tips to help make cleaning your gutters more manageable. 

Gloves:

Wearing gloves protects your health and your safety. Gutters are made of metal, so don’t take chances around potentially sharp metal edges.

Garbage Bags:

Throwing all the debris to the ground just creates another task to complete. Attach a large garbage bag to the ladder to hold everything you clean out. This ensures you are not distracted or overburdened while doing your work.

Gutter Scoop:

Get a gutter scoop so you can get to any hard to reach places. These tools reach into your gutter for extensive clearing.

Gutter Guards:

Gutter guards help keep your gutters clean so that you don’t have to clear them as often. They trap debris from building up and clogging your gutters.
