The Best Gutter Cleaning Tips And Tricks

No one likes gutter cleaning, but the consequences of not maintaining your gutters are costly. 

Think of the expenses involved in repairing your property due to not regularly cleaning out the leaves and debris in your gutters.

Each one of these major problems can be avoided by regularly cleaning your gutters. But to ensure that you are cleaning your gutters in the easiest and most effective manner, here are some gutter cleaning tips from the professionals to help.

Ladder Safety 

Your gutters are not going to come to you, so you need to get up to them. Whether you have your own ladder, or you need to borrow your neighbours, ladder safety is paramount to successful gutter cleaning. The ladder must meet the weight safety requirements for you and any equipment or tools you are carrying. The ladder must be secured to prevent slippage or horizontal movement.

Early Start 

There are a lot of advantages of gutter cleaning when the weather is good and getting an early start in the day. By the middle of the day the roof is hot, the glare is intense and there is increased risk of sunburn and UV exposure. Afternoon sea breezes in Sydney make gutter cleaning late in the afternoon difficult as the dry debris in the gutters blows everywhere when you are cleaning gutters. So start early in the day to make the job easier.

Clean Your Roof First 

As the majority of debris that winds up in your gutters comes from the roof, Husqvarna suggests that it is a wise move to clean your roof first, before you clean your gutters. Keep an eye out for any defects or issues with any loose tiles, screws, anchor points, solar panels, roof anchors and ladder brackets.

Focus On The Drains 

The biggest blockages in guttering systems tend to be in the main drainage areas. You will be wasting your time and effort if you just focus on your gutters, but forget about your drainpipe. Take some time to thoroughly understand how your guttering system works. Identify where your drainage flows and use a straightened coat hanger to remove any blockages in your downpipe.

Test Your Gutters 

Once you have completed removing all of the leaves and environmental debris from your gutters, run a hose on the gutters to make sure that they are properly flowing. Keep an eye out for any leaks or areas that are not flowing properly. If there is water that is pooling in a certain section and is starting to rust, you will need to either fix the rate of descent of that section of gutter or call in a gutter repairer to complete that job for you.
