Huff ‘N Puff provides the tips you need to know to make sure that your gutters are always in the best shape the safe way.
Tip #1: Consider Expertise
Surprisingly, it actually takes some know-how to clean a gutter in Albany, NY, and Eastern NY. Much of that has to do with safety. The gutter’s location makes it easy to forget that you’re depending on a ladder to keep you safe. Ultimately, it’s better that you hire us at Huff ‘N Puff. Our proper equipment and years of experience can assure you that your gutter cleaning will be done right.
Tip #2: Get the Right Equipment
A sturdy ladder with proper strut support is necessary; don’t rely on a rickety ladder. Helmets to protect the head are also advisable. Having someone else to monitor things from the ground is essential. Proper equipment can cost quite a bit, which is why hiring professionals to do the work may be the less expensive choice.
Tip #3: Choose Seamless Gutter
The best way to make sure that your gutter stays clean can begin as early as the day they are installed. Seamless gutters do away with the breaks that connect gutter sections, allowing you to enjoy durable gutters that last long and are far easier to keep clean. That’s because the lack of seams makes scooping up any accumulated gunk easier. You can even invest in a Gutter Helmet® to cover your gutter completely, as it allows nothing but water.
