Clogged gutters can be a risk due to the reason that its holding weight that it wasn’t designed for. Falling leaves from nearby trees can fall on to the roofs and get caught in the gutters. Same can happen with seeds and twigs, and strong winds can deposit all manner of debris on the gutters. Just give it a couple of months, and over time the gutters would end up clogged. When too much debris accumulates, then the bearing that’s holding the gutters in position might eventually bend or misaligned. Leave this situation to get worse, and the whole thing might even fall off.
If you can do the cleaning early, then the gutter won’t be hard to clean by yourself. This is possible as long as there are just a few amounts of debris present and the gutters are dry. Under these conditions the practical method is using a blower cleaning tool. This option has a number of benefits. Firstly, you will not worry about using water and making a mess. Provided that you have a powerful blower, the pressure of the air will be sufficient for removing any debris stuck to the walls. After using the blower, as an extra step, you can use a garden hose to flush out any remaining dirt and really see that the flow of water is moving from the roofs, to the gutter and finally into the downspouts.
Such a method can be effective as long as you clean the gutters before too much debris accumulate and there is no stagnant water trapped inside because if it’s already the rainy months and the gutters are filled with water, then it’s going to be manual labor all the way. You’ll have to get a latter, gloves, towel, and a bucket because, by this point, the only way to get the gunk off the gutter is to manually scoop it up.
The cold and rainy months will be the riskiest time to do outdoor roof and gutter cleaning by yourself. If it ends up to a point where it’s too much of a hassle to go through with the cleaning, then there are gutter cleaning companies that would be able to the job efficiently for you.
