How to clean gutters by yourself
Follow these simple steps to clean your gutters by yourself.
Make sure you have an extendable ladder that you will climb to access the roof and the gutter. Place it on a strong surface that will keep it firm while in use. You can also use a ladder stabilizer if the surface is not so strong, and to avoid destroying the gutters.
Dress for the task. Have a long-sleeved shirt, gloves, and work pants. Be ready to get dirty.
Use A Scoop
Use a plastic gutter scoop to remove the debris from the gutters. You can also remove the debris using your own hands. To clean gutters using your hands, take the leaves and debris in small amounts and place them into a bucket.
Once you have removed all the debris from the gutter, flush it together with the downspout until you confirm that they are properly working. This also helps you to find out any leaking parts that may need replacement.
Once you have cleaned the gutters and the downspout, tighten the sagging metal. You can mount a gutter hanger to keep it firm and prevent it from destruction.
