Gutter cleaning can become a dangerous task if you’re not careful. This is because most of the time, you’ll need to be elevated from the ground, using a ladder to clean out your gutters. However, there are numerous ways to mitigate these risks and clean your gutters from the ground, ensuring your safety.
Use a Gutter Vacuum
A gutter vacuum is a viable option for cleaning gutters from the ground. If you know that your gutters are filled with debris, such as pine cones, twigs or leaves, then you can use a vacuum to suck out the debris without using a ladder. Fortunately, these gutter vacuum attachments can fit well with your standard leaf blower. However, this is only a temporary fix as it might not be able to remove all of the debris from your gutter.
Gutter Sense Cleaning Tool
This tool was designed to make cleaning gutters from the ground a reality. It’s attached to the end of an extension pole and can reach gutters as high as two floors up from the ground. It can also grab all kinds of debris. It has tongs that are intended to run flat into the gutters, even if the extension pole gets canted. However, it needs to be handled with care since it can break easily. This is a good cleaning solution for flat, K-style gutters as well.
Professional Gutter Cleaning
Last, but not the least, it’s still the best option to opt for professional gutter cleaning. Having professional gutter cleaners help you stay secure, knowing that your gutters are thoroughly cleaned from all debris. They’ll also ensure that your gutters are in good working condition by inspecting your system after they have been cleaned. They also have the proper tools and training to carry out this job safely and efficiently.
