How to Clean Your Gutters
Most homeowners can do their own gutter cleaning as long as they take the proper safety precautions.
Gather your tools
You’ll need a sturdy ladder, some sort of scoop and a bucket. Plastic buckets usually work best because they are light and therefore easy to carry. The bucket should have a strong handle, such as a wire handle, that will not break when the bucket is full. Alternatively, you can bring one or more plastic or biodegradable garbage bags with you. You will also need a hose.
Use your ladder to get access to the roof
Depending on your house, it might actually be easier to clean your gutters from the roof. Either way, be sure not to place your ladder against the gutters because they aren’t designed to hold the weight of a person and could easily bend or even break.
