    Default Cleaning Gutters

    Is there a way without getting on the roof to clean gutters? Mine need to be done, but I'm NOT getting on the roof!

    I use a small wooden handled three prong hand held garden weeder/rake. I drilled a hole throught the handle. I insert the handle into my pool tool and secure it with a small nut and bolt. Now I have a device that goes from 10 to 20 feet. From a step ladder I can easily clean the gutters as well as 20 feet of the super gutter over the pool. Patent pending.

    I would never do it from the roof top, to close to the edge ! I do occasionally take the back pack blower up there but its not really good for a full gutter.
    the best method is a sturdy ladder that is at least as tall as the gutters so you don't have to ascend more than your waist at the roof line and top of the ladder. I just use my hands to scoop out as much as I can and then climb on up to the roof with the blower to finish it off.

    Thanks for the ideas. I took my ladder and checked the down spouts and they were clogged with pine needles. I didn't see anything in the long runs, I guess that makes sense. It traveled to the opening for the down spout and got stuck there. So I cleaned it out, we shall see if it stops the water from going over the gutters.
