Prior to cleaning out your home's gutters, inspect them for any damages. The best way to go about this is to first scoop out any leaves and debris that are left in the gutters. Using a ladder, old clothes and work gloves, pull out anything that could potentially block your view using a gutter scoop purchased at the local hardware store. Put debris in a bag that is nearby or in a wheelbarrow to use as compost in your garden.
Wash your gutters using a pressure washer and assistance from another member of the household. Pull the pressure washer up to the roof and spray a few inches away from the gutter. Avoid directly spraying onto your roof's shingles — instead, spray at a 45-degree angle to safeguard them from damage.
Gutter maintenance is extremely important to the exterior of your home. Guarantee home safety by cleaning out your gutters at least three times a year. We recommend doing so at the end of each season to avoid any seasonal weather damage.
