Setting Up Equipment and Tools to Clean Gutter Systems
Our experts adhere to the highest safety standards in the gutter cleaning industry. While each gutter system cleaning task is different the tools used to perform most projects are similar. Setting up ladders safely and correctly while avoiding any damage to the gutter or landscaping is specifically significant. While many experienced service technicians are able to handle ladder usage appropriately without them, different types of ladder stabilizers are routinely used to help avoid both property damage and potential accidents. Especially large jobs require a number of ladder moves by repair professionals. Properly attaching hoses to allow for the required reach without damaging surrounding shrubbery, plants, or flowers is crucial. If a pressure washer is to be used safely setting up that equipment is required. Supplemental equipment may include work gloves, pails, trash bags, screwdriver, hammer, and a plumber’s snake.
Gutter and Downspout Inspection
We evaluate your entire above-ground gutter and downspout system. Hunting for problem areas that may call for specific attention we examine any apparent clogs in the channels and downspouts. We also take the time to note missing screws, loose-fitting joints, and areas where your rain gutters may have noticeably pulled away from the fascia. Performing this examination allows the cleaner to effectively evaluate the particular issues with your gutter system, specific areas that may need very special attention, and to determine the exact procedures necessary to guarantee a properly functioning gutter system.
Get Rid Of Debris and Clogs in Gutters and Downspouts
After the examination, the gutter cleaning pro will securely set an extension ladder to gain access to the starting point of cleaning the gutters. Depending upon problem spots discovered during the course of the evaluation, the professional may choose to remove large obstructions first or might simply start at one end of the guttering working their way to a downspout. For two-story homes, most specialists would prefer to clean the gutter system starting with the highest level and work their way downward. Durable work gloves, a garden or gutter trowel, and a bucket are extremely beneficial when cleaning the gutters. When especially persistent blockages are found the service technician may opt to employ a plumber’s snake or high-pressure water to clear the obstruction. Finally, after removing all the debris the gutter cleaner uses a low-pressure water hose to flush the rain gutters and check for the appropriate functioning of the whole gutter system. At this point, the specialist might have the opportunity to detect prospective problems with your gutter system that were not noticeable before the cleaning. The service technician will advise you of anything you should be on the lookout for over time.
Bag or Distribute Residual Gutter Debris
Following the gutter system is evaluated, cleaned, and flushed, the professional will ensure that all residual debris is bagged appropriately for disposal. Alternatively, depending upon the volume of debris accumulated and the type of landscaping on the property, the specialist may elect to disperse it into existing flower beds or gardens.
