Supplies: Gloves, Dust Mask, Safety Goggles, Ladder

STEP 1

Make sure that your ladder is stable at all times. Once you’re sure it is, climb up and start scooping debris from your gutters into a garbage bag.

STEP 2

Rinse towards the downspout of the gutter with a high-pressure nozzle hose to get it nice and clean. If you live by a lot of trees, consider installing a leaf strainer at the top of your drains to help cut down on larger clogs.

STEP 3

For continued maintenance, consider cleaning your gutters twice a year.
