4 Tools to Make Gutter Cleaning Easier
Do you tend to put off gutter cleaning because of the time and mess involved, and yet you don’t want to pay a gutter cleaning service to do it for you? If you dread climbing a ladder to clean the muck out of gutters and downspouts, there are many tools to make the job easier – and possibly even eliminate the need for a ladder!
- Gutter brooms. This extension tool includes a grabber, broom and dustpan. While you will still need to use a ladder to access gutters, the pole extends your reach and reduces the number of times you need to climb up and down the ladder. The grabber can also tackle wet and heavy debris.
- Gutter vacuum. Get the job done without ever leaving the ground. This method allows you to suck up leaves or blow them out using high pressure from extension wands attached to your shop vac or leaf blower. Curved attachments can curl over the edge of the gutter to suck debris into a bag or vacuum. If you choose to blow leaves out of the gutter, you will also have to clean them off the ground.
- Gutter flusher. Air alone can’t clean wet, heavy debris out of the bottom of the gutter trough. That’s where gutter flushers come in handy. Attach the extension wand to the end of your garden hose to rinse out gutters. For more heavy-duty cleaning, combine the attachments with a pressure washer.
- Gutter Helmet®. The best gutter cleaning tool is the one that keeps everything out in the first place! Gutter Helmet features a patented nose-forward design with no vertical openings for leaves, pine needles and other debris to get through, so you can eliminate the chore of gutter cleaning altogether.
