Gutter Maintenance Leaves and twigs can build up over time and clog your gutters and downspouts. This means your gutters can overflow and damage the roof, fascia and — even worse — end up along the foundation of your house. The good news is that all this water damage is avoidable if you follow a few simple steps:

  • Clean your gutters at least twice a year — once in the spring and then once again in the fall.

  • Check them before and after any heavy rain showers to make sure your gutters are still clear.

  • Cleaning is typically easiest when the weather and the debris have had a few days to dry out, but that's not always an option and sometimes you’ll have to deal with wet leaves.

Using a Ladder and Gutter Cleaning Safety The best way to access your gutters is with a ladder (leave working from the roof to the pros). If you’re uncomfortable on a ladder or if there are power lines near your gutters, call a professional for help. Always set a ladder on solid, stable and level ground. Avoid standing on the top three rungs, and don't reach past the side rail or no farther than your belt buckle. Some ladders have an adjustable leg for uneven ground. Be sure to follow the safety instructions noted on the side of the ladder. For a two-story home, you’ll need an extension ladder. Use hooks to attach a bucket for tools or debris, or just drop debris onto plastic or a drop cloth on the ground. Make sure your ladder isn't sitting on the plastic

. Wear work gloves when cleaning gutters because you may come in contact with some sharp metal. If you’re working with wet debris, consider wearing nitrile gloves under your work gloves.
