How to Clean Gutters You Can’t Reach

“Work Smarter, Not Harder”

Cleaning your gutters is always a messy, tedious job, but it’s downright unsafe when you can’t reach them easily. No one wants to have to tell the paramedics that they fell trying to clean their gutters! But like with everything, there’s a way to work smarter, not harder. Here are several tricks for how to clean gutters you can’t reach while keeping yourself safe.

  • Gutter vacuum attachments: If you have a shop vac or a wet/dry vac, you can get attachments or make a tool that will make gutter cleaning easy, even when they’re far over your head. Just suck the leaves and muck into your vacuum, and then dump it into the trash!
  • Leaf blower attachments: Like with the vacuum, you can also get or make attachments for your leaf blower that will allow you to get up into those gutters. If your leaf blower has a reverse feature, you can use it just like a vacuum, or you can use it to blow all the leaves right out of the gutter.
  • Gutter flusher and cleaner: If you like the idea of a device but want one that will do a more thorough job, check out a flusher and cleaner. These extendable tools hook up to your garden hose and allow you to simply flush out your gutters while your feet never leave the ground.
  • Professional gutter cleaning services: If all of this still sounds like too much of a hassle for you, never fear.
