Let’s face it, gutter cleaning is a horrible and time-consuming chore no matter what part of the country you’re in. Climbing up a ladder to unclog backed up gutters is not a fun way to spend your weekend, but you’ve got to prepare your home for the season ahead.
Gutter preparation is the easiest way to keep up with the accumulation of leaves in your gutters. Some of this groundwork involves buying different types of gutter cleaning tools from extra-long “gutter rakes” to strong gloves and trash bags or even gutter cleaning robots. Most homeowners buy new ladders and gloves for the many piles of leaves they will pick up and bag this fall season.
Still, other homeowners just don’t want to be bothered and hire a professional company to clean their gutters. If, your budget doesn’t include the luxury of repeatedly paying someone else to do it, then take these few hints into consideration as you get your gutters ready for the fall season:
Don’t wait till the last minute clean your gutters at least once a month and maybe twice a month during the fall months
Spend the extra money on a strong, steady ladder. Faulty ladders lead to many falls and injuries during the autumn months. The potential expense of the medical bill outweighs the cost of a new ladder.
Trim or cut trees with branches that may over hang your home or gutters.
