Helpful Tips for Making Gutter Cleaning Easier

Gutters protect your home exterior, foundation and landscaping. It’s also essential in preventing basement flooding and erosion. However, when neglected, your gutters can get clogged with dried leaves, branches and other debris. Regular cleaning helps ensure your gutter system stays in good shape and functions efficiently.

Here are tips to help make cleaning your gutters simpler and easier.

Invest in Gutter Guards

Gutter guards filter out debris and keep them from getting into your gutters. They come in various styles, materials and colors to fit every home. Some styles are made to prevent large objects from entering the gutters while others can filter out even the smallest pieces of pine needles or stones.

Trim Trees Surrounding Your Home

One of the easiest ways to keep your gutters clean is to trim back trees surrounding your home so they don’t hang over your roof. Without overhanging branches, the debris that ends up in your gutters will significantly reduce. This means you don’t have to worry about your gutters being constantly clogged.

Add a Filter at the Top of the Downspout

Installing filters at the areas where downspouts meet the rest of the system will also help make cleaning your gutters easier. These filters are small pieces of screens that cover the downspout opening.

Hire a Professional

Cleaning gutters is not as easy as it seems, and this task can also be dangerous for inexperienced individuals. Professionals have the right tools and skills to perform this task. By hiring pros, you can devote your time to doing another productive task and prevent accidents. They can also determine if your gutters need repair and tackle minor issues before they turn into major problems.
