Here at LeafFilter, we get a lot of questions about cleaning gutters, and how to choose the right gutter cleaning service. Maybe you’ve asked yourself these same questions. Luckily, we have gutter experts right here at LeafFilter. So, read on for answers to the three most common gutter cleaning questions we hear.

How do I clean my seamless eavestroughs?

For many homeowners, gutters tend to be an out of sight, out of mind home feature. In order to properly clean your gutters, you’ll need the right tools and know-how to get the job done. In this article, you can learn all about the proper technique you need to clean your seamless eavestroughs. But you may want to think twice before you do any DIY work on your gutter system.

Should I hire a gutter cleaning service?

Cleaning gutters is not a project you should try to DIY. Many homeowners do not realize the risk they’re taking when they try to clean their gutters themselves.

First and foremost, there is the issue of safety. In order to properly clean you rain gutters, you must climb a ladder. Hundreds of thousands of people are severely injured each year from ladder falls. Without proper equipment and safety training, you could become another statistic.

It’s also important to remember that your gutters are fragile, too. Putting too much weight on them, or accidentally dropping something on them, can cause costly damage to the entire system.

Due to these risks, a professional gutter cleaning service is certainly a good option. However, many people don’t realize gutter cleaning is only a temporary solution to a permanent problem. LeafFilter Gutter Protection provides permanent relief from clogged gutters, meaning you won’t have to worry about hiring a professional company to take care of your seamless eavestroughs ever again.
