Cleaning Gutters Without a Ladder

cleaning-gutters-without-a-ladderOkay, so by now we’ve convinced you that it’s extremely important to get your rain gutters cleaned out. You hate the idea of climbing a ladder so you ask, is cleaning gutters without a ladder really possible?

Fortunately for you there are actually a couple of reliable gutter cleaning methods that will keep your feet firm and safe on the ground. Here are a few of your options.

Use Your Vacuum

With the right attachment your Shop-Vac or outdoor vacuum can become a potent gutter cleaning tool. These attachments are usually inexpensive and easy to use.

Try the “Gutter Cleaning Kit” from Shop-Vac, or the “Gutter Clutter Buster.” The latter is an independent product which is made exclusively in the USA.

You can also use your leaf blower to your advantage. Again, you will need a special attachment to do so.

The Weed Eater Rain Gutter Attachment is one example of this kind of an attachment. As you’ll see, it’s slightly more expensive than the vacuum attachment.

Put Water on Your Side

Your hose can become a powerful gutter cleaning tool when paired with a gutter cleaning telescoping wand. However, this wand just won’t be powerful enough to help you if you’ve left a lot of debris to become impacted in your gutters over time.

Instead, you might need to switch to a pressure washer paired with an angled gutter spray attachment. The video below shows this kind of a set-up in action.

Call a Professional

Of course, calling a professional is one of the easiest strategies of all when cleaning gutters without a ladder. This is a service we perform all the time for our customers in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Largo, and the rest of the Tampa Bay area.

Once we’ve cleaned your gutters we can also protect them throughout the year with micro-mesh gutter guards that reduce the amount of time and energy you’ll need to spend on gutter maintenance. Call us today for a free estimate so we can keep your feet firmly on the ground for years to come.
