Routinely Cleaning Your Gutters

Want to make sure your gutters are working as best as possible at all times? We recommend checking your gutters at least every 2 months in the Florida Panhandle. The majority of homes in our area have trees in the yard, making debris build up a bit quicker than it may in other areas. Every 3 months we recommend cleaning them regardless of build up just to ensure everything is working properly.

How To Clean Your Gutters

For the job of cleaning your gutters we recommend gloves, a hose and a ladder. Do NOT climb around on your roof attempting to clean gutters, that is a great way to fall and get injured. Using the ladder, properly stabilize yourself and slowly remove any debris you may have. Once everything seems pretty good, run water from the hose through the gutter system to wash anything else away and ensure they are working properly.
