Installing properly functioning gutters is one of the best ways to protect your home from water-related damage. Unfortunately, many homeowners tend to notice their gutters only when they cease to perform their duty. At this point, however, extensive problems might have already appeared, causing issues that can be costly to repair.
Preventing expensive gutter issues can be easy, as long as you make time to clean your gutters regularly. Experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year, during spring and fall. Huff ‘N Puff, the leading company for gutter replacement and protection in the region, shares the importance of having clean and healthy gutters.
Tools You Can Use for Gutter Cleaning
To make the task easier, you will need a set of gutter cleaning tools, like:
Power Cleaning Tools – Leaf blowers, pressure washers, garden hose, and shop vacs fall under this category. You can use them to clear out significant debris in your gutters while you stay safe on the ground.
Hand Cleaning Tools – There are plenty of hand gutter cleaners, scrubbers and washers available on the market. They offer more efficient results than power washing tools because they require you to be on a ladder for a thorough cleaning. They can be a great option if you plan to have gutter installation soon.
The Gutter Helmet® Difference
While power washing and hand cleaning tools are both good gutter cleaners, they have several drawbacks. Power cleaning materials often don’t reach other areas of your gutters, leaving several debris trapped in your system. In addition, you cannot see the results from the ground with these tools. Hand cleaning materials, on the other hand, can provide considerable risk to your physical safety, as you’ll have to be on a ladder to use them.
Gutter Helmet gutter covers are your permanent and most efficient solution to gutter cleaning. They incorporate innovative features, such as a nose-forward design, ribbed surface, and PermaLife™ finish, that prevent debris from entering your system. With these installed, you can rest easy knowing that your gutters are protected from clogs and other issues for many years. All in all, they eliminate the need for frequent gutter maintenance.
