Regular gutter cleaning is important to keep your gutters functioning properly. You could handle this job yourself, or you could hire a professional company to do it. Here are five reasons why leaving this duty to the pros is a good idea.
It’s rough work. It can take all day for an inexperienced person, and you’ll need to climb up and down a ladder many times. It requires endurance and resilience that professionals have built up throughout their careers.
It’s not the safest job. You’ll have to reach far away from your body to get to leaves and debris, which is risky while standing on top of a ladder. Professionals have special equipment and training to keep them safer while cleaning gutters.
Gutter cleaning requires special tools for a thorough job. While you could buy the tools, you’re likely a novice at using them. You may not know which piece of equipment to use where, and figuring out proper use is frustrating.
You’ll have a mess to clean up. As if the actual gutter cleaning isn’t stressful enough, you’ll also have to scoop up all the leaves and debris you tossed on your lawn. Professionals will clean up the mess for you.
Gutter cleaning companies have insurance. If you hire a friend to do the work, that person likely doesn’t have insurance, which leaves you liable if your friend gets hurt on your property.
