How long does gutter cleaning take?
Generally speaking, a gutter cleaning job will take two to three hours. That timeline will largely depend on the number of gutters to be cleaned, the total length of guttering, and how accessible those gutters are from above or below. The job length will also depend heavily on the state of the gutters when we get started.
How often should you get your gutters cleaned?
You should be getting your gutters cleaned between 2 to 4 times a year, the frequency of gutter cleaning should be guided by the number and type of trees you have near your home. You should still be getting your gutters cleaned yearly even if you have no trees near your property or have a gutter guard.
Cleaning your gutters is important as dirt and debris build up in your gutters is a fire risk and can lead to property damage due to water getting caught in the gutters and/or overflowing. This overflow can penetrate your walls which will absorb the water and damage your plasterboard, ruining your walls.
Can I clean the gutters myself?
Of course, it is possible to clean your gutters yourself, but there are benefits to hiring a professional. First and foremost, it’s safer to hire a professional as climbing onto the roof to clean your gutters can be dangerous if you don’t have experience working on roofs. Hiring a professional is also beneficial as they have access to specialised tools that will achieve the best clean possible. Professional cleaners are also fully insured should anything go wrong.
What is the best way to clean your gutter?
To ensure the safest and best clean possible, it’s best to go with a professional cleaner. If you’re certain you want to get the job done on your own, then you will need:
- A sturdy ladder
- Long sleeved shirt, work pants, and rubber gloves
- A small plastic scoop
- A bucket or tarp
- A garden hose
You need to scoop out all the leaves, debris, and gunk that has built up in your gutters, discard everything into a bucket or onto a tarp that you laid out prior to cleaning. Once everything is scooped out, wash your gutters down with a hose to pick up any small bits you may have missed. You should however be sure to be careful if attempting this on your own as there is the danger of slipping and falling, risking injuries or broken bones when attempting this on your own.
