Setting Up Equipment and Tools to Clean Downspouts and Gutters
Our professionals follow the highest safety standards in the gutter cleaning industry. While each and every rain gutter cleaning project is different the tools used to perform most jobs are similar. Setting up ladders safely and correctly while preventing any harm to the gutter or landscaping is primarily important. Even though many competent service technicians have the ability to manage ladder utilization appropriately without them, different types of ladder stabilizers are routinely used to help avoid both house damage and accidents. Especially large jobs require multiple ladder moves by specialists. Properly attaching hoses to allow the needed reach without damaging surrounding shrubbery, plants, or flowers is essential. If a pressure washer is to be used safely setting up that equipment is vital. Additional equipment may consist of work gloves, pails, trash bags, screwdriver, hammer, and a plumber’s snake.
Gutter and Downspout Evaluation
We scrutinize your whole entire above-ground downspout and gutter system. Looking for problem areas that may call for special focus we review any apparent stoppages in the channels and downspouts. We also take the time to spot missing screws, loose-fitting joints, and places where your gutters may have noticeably pulled away from the fascia. Performing this checkup allows the professional technician to effectively assess the precise issues with your gutter system, specific areas that may need attention, and to figure out the exact steps required to ensure an efficiently functioning gutter system.
Remove Debris and Clogs in Gutters and Downspouts
After the evaluation, the gutter cleaning specialist will safely position an extension ladder to access the starting point of cleaning the gutters. Depending upon problem spots discovered during the course of the examination, the specialist may choose to get rid of obvious large blockages first or might simply start at one end of the guttering working their way to a downspout. For two-story houses, most experts prefer to clean the gutter system beginning with the highest level and working their way downward. Durable work gloves, a garden or gutter trowel, and a bucket are very effective when cleaning the gutters. When particularly obstinate obstructions are found the specialist may opt to utilize a plumber’s snake or high-pressure water to clear the obstruction. Finally, after getting rid of all the debris the gutter cleaner uses a low-pressure water hose to rinse the gutters and look for the effective performance of the entire gutter system. At this point, the service technician might have the opportunity to detect prospective problems with your guttering that were not notified prior to the cleaning. The service technician will advise you of issues you should be on the lookout for over time.
