Eave trough & Gutter cleaning
Cleaning your gutters is extremely important. They are designed to catch and hold debris that fall from trees and carried from the wind. Your gutters should be cleaned once a year at minimum, more often if your house is surrounded by trees.
Types of Gutters
Open gutter- The gutters are completely open and easily scooped by hand
Gutter guards-gutter guards prevent debris from falling into the gutter and are simply cleaned
Rain gutters- They have ribs and do get full of debris. These are the hardest gutters to clean!

Use your ladder to access your gutters and scoop the gutter contents into your bucket. Hook up to a rope and harness if needed to access your entire roof.
After cleaning your gutters rinse gutters out with a garden hose to flush them out.
Preventing your gutters from clogging up
Install gutter baskets. They prevent your gutters from clogging up and allow water to flow even when full! This also reduces how often you have to clean gutters.
