Cleaning Gutters Makes A Lot Of Sense
Cleaning gutters is something that must be done with regularity or the resulting problems that could occur might even border on catastrophic. So, why do so many individuals neglect to follow regular cleaning schedules even though they understand the consequences are so steep? Many times, the reason people avoid cleaning gutters is not because they do not understand the consequences of not cleaning them, but because they do not understand the frequency that gutters must be cleaned.
The process of cleaning gutters must be undertaken at least twice a year. Annually doesn’t cut it. It needs to be done at least twice within the same calendar year. Of course, there are those human beings who feel that one need not clean their roof gutters at all. These people usually learn their lesson in the long run when the money they saved on cleaning has to be shelled out tenfold to pay for water damage induced repair work. Don’t make that kind of mistake.
So what is the safest way to go avoid cleaning gutters? First, find someone else who will do it with you. One of you should do the cleaning while the other holds the ladder to ensure that you do not fall. Next, assemble some gloves and some nails and a hammer. You may also want to use a tool belt if you have one to make carrying things up the ladder easier. Or better yet – hire professionals like A+ Pro Window Services.
Once you have safely secured the ladder, climb to a spot where the gutter meets with the rainspouts. Check to see if the rainspouts are sagging or covered in mildew. If it appears that they are sagging, you may want to reinforce them by nailing them together in several places. You will also want to put those gloves on and start removing the decomposing leaves from the drain spouts. You will want to continue doing this until all spouts are clean.
The last step in cleaning gutters involves spraying all lose debris and mildew into the gutters with a hose, leaving all of the gutters clean and ready to prevent water damage.
Sound like work? It is! And you run the risk of seriously damaging yourself should you fall from the ladder. Not to mention the time involved to get the job done.
