Best Times To Clean Your Gutters
Spring and fall is the best time to clean your gutters. Spring is a good time to clean out everything that has amassed in your gutters during the winter and fall is a good time to clean your gutters to make sure they are clean enough to handle the roof drainage that will be required from winter’s increased rain and snowfall.
- Sturdy ladder (extension ladder for second story)
- Buckets with S-hooks
- Safety goggles/glasses
- Work gloves
- Trowel or handled scoop
- Garden hose with spray nozzle
- Screwdriver to remove and reattach downspout if it runs underground

Cleaning Gutters Can Be Risky Task For Most Property Owners
Cleaning your gutters can get dangerous fast if you don’t take the right precautions. A ladder placed on uneven ground is a sure problem. For those not used to using a ladder, the idea of carrying tools up it, the height of the gutters, and skill needed to work on the gutters once your in place can be overwhelming! We haven’t even talked about avoiding power lines yet. This is why most property owners decide to get professionals to clean their gutters twice a year. Once in the fall and once in the springs at least.
