Gutter systems protect your home from excessive water damages. However, when the gutters get clogged, this can result in a mess at best, and water damage at worst. The upkeep of ordinary gutters is dirty, dangerous and time-consuming work which needs to be done regularly. When they are not cleaned and maintained, dirt, debris and leaves can cause obstruction in the trough which can lead to water overflow resulting in damaged landscaping or water in the basement. To make life easier, consider installing the WaterFall Gutter Guard System in Boston, MA .

gutter guard system can keep the leaves, twigs, and other debris from plugging your rain gutters. Rainwater will flow through the duct smoothly, guiding it to the downspout without obstruction.

Gutter Cleaning Tips

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Custom Insulation offers The WaterFall Gutter Guard System as a way to protect your seamless gutters from debris and the need to clean your gutters. If your home does not have this gutter guard system, it's that time of year when a second gutter cleaning is almost always needed. New leaf debris and recent high winds can cause leaves, pine needles and debris to clog your gutter causing potential rainwater overflow. In turn, this can cause landscape erosion and water damage to your home.

There are a many gutter cleaning tips that can bring sanity and safety to this springtime job. Here are some of the basics:

Ladders: Always let someone know you will be using a ladder to work on your gutters. Use a safe and sturdy ladder, with a small shelf strong enough to hold a five-gallon bucket to collect the debris from the gutter.

A four-legged step ladder for a single story home or an extension ladder for a two-story home is recommended.

Hose nozzles: Use a garden hose with a pistol-grip trigger spray nozzle. This type of spray nozzle allows you to adjust the water pressure with one hand. This style of hose nozzle allows it to be easily hung over the front edge of the gutter while you move the ladder.

Wear Gloves: Gloves can help protect hands against dirty, rotting leaf debris that are often ridden with bacteria from wild life.

Rake the Roof: From the ground, rake all branches and leaves off the roof first. Otherwise, the next rain will wash all the debris down into the clean gutter, clogging it up again.
