Keeping your gutters clean is an essential part of home maintenance. However, it can be time-consuming and physically draining. It’s no simple task to begin with — one has to climb the ladder and get rid of the debris, doing so with utmost care. Fortunately, there are ways to save time and stress when it comes to gutter cleaning. Chimney Doctors shares some of them below.
Save time on gutter cleaning by keeping debris from accumulating. Regular gutter maintenance involves cleaning smaller amounts of debris throughout the year, making sure they’re clog-free so you won’t have to worry about standing water and overflowing gutters during rainy periods.
A ladder remains a handy tool when cleaning gutters. Using a leaf blower or a power washer should do the trick while standing on the ladder near the roofline. However, if you’re concerned about your safety, there are other ways you can do this chore from the ground. A garden hose or a wet/dry vacuum equipped with attachments long enough to reach the roofline can help you get rid of the dead leaves and other debris.
Consider installing gutter guards or covers that serve as a protective barrier to prevent leaves and debris from entering your gutters. They do require some maintenance as well, but they significantly help reduce the frequency of gutter cleaning.
