October 9, 2009, Newsletter Issue #188: Preparing your Gutters for Power Washing

Tip of the Week

If you can recruit someone to help you, power washing your gutters goes much smoother as a two-person job.

Pour some water down the spout and have your helper listen to check that it's running clear. If it is clogged, you can dismantle the spout or use a plumbing snake. Better yet, use a sewer-jetting attachment on your power washer to take care of the blockage quickly.

Remove the bigger objects first (tennis balls, pine cones, golf balls, plastic bags and items blown by the wind, youŽd be surprised at what ends up in your gutters). If the gutter is full of water, unplug the downspout and let it drain. The pressure washing job will be less messy. Wear rubber gloves and goggles for your protection.
