4 Steps To Safely Cleaning Your Gutters

If you’re thinking of cleaning your gutters on your own, follow these important steps for safety and success:

Ladder Safety

Secure your ladder by making sure it is on a level surface, at a comfortable climbing angle, and stable. Do this before you climb to prevent accidents.

Walk or Crawl

If you can’t walk on the roof, crawl carefully and use a tether to avoid falling. Wear appropriate shoes to avoid slipping.

Clear Debris

While wearing gloves, use your hands or a leaf blower to remove debris from the gutters.

Flush Downspouts

Use a water hose to make sure the downspouts are clear and water can flow freely.


Keeping your gutters clean is crucial to direct water away from your home and prevent water damage.
