Clean your Gutters without causing excess damage

Although it’s tempting to just blast your gutters with a high-pressure washer, it may not be the best method to keep your gutters clean.

While gutters can withstand rainstorms, the extremely concentrated power of a pressure cleaner is something else altogether and can lead to damage.

Our pressure washing experts in Robina share their tips for the best ways to clean your gutters without causing any damage.

Cleaning Your Gutters With A Pressure Washer

If your gutter system is relatively new and sturdy, it is possible to use high water pressure to make your life easier!

You’ll need to get a pressure washing kit or generator that converts your garden hose into a high-pressure water system, also known as a gurney.

Either way, you’ll need to make sure your gutters are structurally sound and can handle the high pressure. Otherwise, you’ll have some expensive repairs on your hands and nobody wants that!

Is It Ok To Use A Low-Pressure Setting On Your Gutters?

It depends on what you consider “low”.

Some gutter systems are more sensitive than others and could not only become dented, but they could also cause roof damage if they were blasted with a high-pressure setting and disconnected from their attachments.

The safest method for cleaning out your gutters is to remove the leaves first and then use a garden hose to ensure there are no blockages preventing water from moving through the guttering system as intended.

If you think your gutters can’t handle a pressure washer, here are some alternative methods.

Best Methods For Cleaning Your Gutters Without A Pressure Washer

If your gutters are old, bent or damaged in any way it’s best to avoid a power washer. There is already structural weakness and a power washing system would simply make it worse.

Here are alternative methods.

1. Gutter Guard

Reduce the need for extensive cleaning by protecting your gutters. Gutter guards are caps that cover the gutter and help prevent clogging.

Not only will it extend the life of your gutters, it also requires less maintenance on your end!

2. Remove Debris By Hand

Plain, simple and effective! Grab yourself a pair of thick garden gloves, a bucket and a ladder if you need one. Then get to work pulling out the debris caught in your gutters.

You can also invest in a low-cost gutter scoop instead of getting your hands dirty!

3. Low-Pressure Garden Hose

Once removing leaves, twigs and other debris, you can run a low-pressure garden hose to check that water is flowing through your gutters as it should.

Just spray your gutters or the roof and check that water drains through your downpipes and away from your home’s foundation.

4. Wet/Dry Vacuum Or Leaf Blower

If you have access to a vacuum you can use outdoors or a leaf blower, these tools can also save you significant time.

Best to use a low or medium setting to prevent damage to the structure of your gutters!
