Hey homeowners—have you checked on the status of your gutters lately?

We know, they’re easy to forget about, but they are important in safeguarding your home from water damage. If you are up to the challenge, here are the steps you should take to clean your gutters:

1. Gear Up:

Before you get started, make sure you’re equipped with the right gear. You’ll need thick gloves to protect your hands from debris, a sturdy ladder, a trash bag to collect debris, and a garden hose with a spray nozzle or gutter attachment.

2. Safety First:

Always make safety a priority when working on your roof. Make sure your ladder is stable and on solid ground. It’s also wise to have someone to assist you.

3. Clear Debris:

Start by removing any large debris like leaves, twigs, or nests by hand.

4. Flush Them Out:

Using your garden hose, direct water through the gutters, starting at the end farthest from the downspout. This will help loosen and clean out stubborn dirt and small debris.

5. Check Your Downspouts:

Ensure that your downspouts are clear of obstructions by flushing water through them. If there is a stubborn clog, you may need to use a pressure washer to dislodge it.

6. Schedule Regular Maintenance:

Make cleaning out your gutters a regular part of your home maintenance routine. Inspect your gutters for signs of damage or leaks. If you notice that your gutters or roof require professional help, call Farha Roofing.


When should you clean your gutters?

We recommend cleaning them at least twice a year. It’s also a good idea to remove debris before and after heavy rainfall ensuring that your gutter system will always be at peak performance and lessening the chance of water damage to your roof and foundation.
