Otherwise, take a look at the steps below to learn how to clean gutters.

Step 1. Make sure you have the right tools.

Make sure you have the following items:

  • Ladder in good condition
  • Two buckets, one for your tools & one for the debris
  • Heavy duty gloves
  • Gutter Scoop
  • Hose with high pressure nozzle
  • Safety Glasses

Gather all of your tools together and place them in on of the buckets. You can hang the bucket from the ladder using a piece of wire. This is much safer than sitting them on the roof as you work.

Step 2. Check the weather.

Before cleaning your gutters, make sure you wait for a dry, sunny day. If you wait for until a few dry days have passed, the debris will have dried out, making it much easier to clean the gutters.

Step 3. Safely Set Up Your Ladder.

Probably the most dangerous part of cleaning gutters is setting up and using an extension ladder. We’ve found the safest way to use a ladder is listed on the NSW Workcover website. If you’re uncomfortable setting up or using a ladder, give us a call on 8310 6770 for a free quote.

Step 4. Scoop the loose debris from the gutters.

Starting at the down pipe at the low end of a gutter, use a narrow garden trowel or a gutter scoop to scoop out loose debris, working away from the down pipe. To minimise cleanup later, you can scoop the debris into a plastic bucket.

Step 5. Use water hose to wash the gutter clean.

Using a high pressure nozzle at the end of a water hose, wash out each length of gutter, working toward the down pipe. This can be a messy job; try to avoid splattering mud all over your house. If necessary, use a stiff scrub brush to remove encrusted dirt.

Step 6. Check & clear the downpipes.

If water doesn’t drain freely through the down pipes, try flushing the debris down them with a hose. If that doesn’t work, use a plumber’s snake to free and pull out the debris from the bottom or, in some situations, to push it through from the top.
