Your First Gutter Cleaning Jobs

Are you new to cleaning gutters? You have the choice of working from the ground, a ladder, or from the roof, but in the beginning stages of learning how to clean gutters it's best to play it safe an work from the ground. By using a gutter cleaning wand in combination with your pressure washer telescoping wand, and you can get most gutter cleaning jobs done without using a ladder or scaffold. Once you feel comfortable with the equipment you can try cleaning from an elevated position. When cleaning from the rooftop, check to see if the area above the gutters is easily accessible and make sure there are no loose roofing tiles or other hazards. If you aren't comfortable working from the roof, try using a scaffold instead of a ladder. Scaffolds offer a more stable center of gravity when using the gutter cleaning wand. It's best to save the ladder until you are comfortable using your pressure washer gear. Regardless of your choice of a ladder or scaffold, never work from an elevated position alone.
