Gutter Cleaning is One of Our Specialties!
As much as we would deny it, living in a clean place gives us a good feeling of ourselves as well as an assurance that the place portrays a good image about us. Nonetheless, despite the fact that we constantly endeavor to keep our dwellings clean at all times, some parts of the house seem to attract grime sooner than we expect.
Windows and gutters are the worst hit since they have flat surfaces that are ideal for dust and leaves settling. Bathroom doors and sprinklers are a nuisance too due to hard water depositions. For this reason, regular cleaning of these surfaces is necessary to prevent clogging that surely impairs that good impression we want to make.
Gutter cleaning Procedures
The fact that gutters are placed considerably high, hanging just below the roof edges, makes gutter cleaning a nightmare. If caution is not taken when undertaking the cleaning task, one might get seriously injured especially if the gutters being washed are those of a story building. Even so, there are several standard procedures that should be applied when undertaking any gutter cleaning duty.
- Get the right gear for the Job :
Gutter cleaning is not the kind of task that you just hop into and think you can do-it-yourself. Appropriate attire should be worn. Avoid loose clothing since they may get stuck on the gutter harnesses, sometimes resulting to accidents. Also, find the right tools for the job. A pair of gloves, a strong ladder and some scraping brushes (with varied handle lengths) are good for a start. Avoid climbing on structures, trees or vessels so as to reach the gutters, since they may topple or break and cause accidents.
- Scrap the grimy surface and collect the solid waste on a scooper
Ensure that as you scrub the gutter surfaces you do not alter their arrangement or gradient. Throw the solid waste into a junk pit and not on your compound.
- Finally, swill out the gutters with a high pressure water jet maybe from a pressure washer or a hose pipe. Ensure that you leave the gutters spotless without any sticky substances on them.
Gutter maintenance tips
Unknown to most people, gutters are very easy to manage and you can cut by a very huge proportion, the effort that you will use in cleaning your gutters, next time you think of doing it.
To start with, one can install gutter covers, on the gutters to regulate entry of solid items into the gutter channels. These covers can be made of wire mesh or from absorbent foam.
