Cleaning your drainage system is an effort and so is cleaning the whole house. But when it comes to cleaning your gutter you may encounter more troubles than sweeping and vacuuming your living room.
First, you have to climb to your gutter and extreme safety procedures must be considered. Nobody wants to get hurt when cleaning the gutter, so you must be really careful in climbing. Using sturdy ladder will do very well. Otherwise, you will be spending the rest of your summer in the hospital with a broken bone. It pays to be totally cautious.
Practising how to use the ladder when cleaning will help you get prepared in doing the real cleaning of your gutter. And when you are ready, you will start cleaning all the garbage, waste, dried leaves, debris, and others and put them in your garbage bag. You have to take extra baggage with you because you don't know how much clutters are lying on your gutter.
If you have mold allergy, you have to think twice in climbing to your gutter. The waste materials that have built up in your gutter can be a risk to your health. So, the suggested solution for this would be to use protection like wearing a mask or wearing clothes that can cover your skin and gloves for your hands.
