Gutter Cleaning Safety Part 2

When you get ready to begin a home gutter cleaning job, it's a very good idea to plan the work for a time when someone else is home. Another vital area is proximity to power lines. Be sure to keep all ladders, pressure washing equipment and other items at least ten feet away from power lines and power poles. Beware the overhead wires! They are NOT insulated, in spite of the appearance of weatherproofing material on the lines. Always survey the area before starting your gutter cleaning work so you know where potential hazards with power lines may be.
