5 Tools to Make Gutter Cleaning a Little Easier

Cleaning your gutters can be a thankless chore, and not everybody can afford to pay a professional to have it done twice each year. However, there are some tools that will help expedite the gutter cleaning process, so you can spend more time relaxing instead of laboring high up on a ladder. Here are five of the most popular:

1. Gutter Getter Gutter Care and Cleaning Kit

Every job is simpler if you use the right tools for it. So instead of grabbing a garden spade or something else out of the garage, why not buy tools that are specially designed for gutter cleaning? This kit features a scoop that fits perfectly inside the gutter, as well as a hand rake that works great on leaves and pine needles. Both can be attached to a telescoping pole to reach further down your gutter. You can even leave strainers in the gutters to help with your next cleaning.

2. Airaleave

If most of your gutter debris is dry, you may be able to simply blow it out of your gutters and onto the ground for easy bagging. Thankfully, there is an attachment for your leaf blower that is ideal for this task. In addition, the Airaleave can be used to unblock debris clogs that are hidden in your downspouts; just stick it into either end of your downspout and fire up your leaf blower. The Airaleave works with most gas- or electric-powered leaf blowers and can drastically cut the amount of timer spent cleaning your gutters.

3. Shop-Vac 2.5-Inch Gutter Cleaning Kit

Of course, if you’d rather not have to keep bending over to pick up the debris from the ground after you’ve removed it from your gutters, you can always avoid this step by vacuuming up the debris instead. These attachments work with most standard wet-dry and heavy-duty vacuum cleaners to suck out the debris from the gutter directly into the vacuum tank, where it can be easily dumped into a trash can or garbage bag.

4. Gutter Cleaning Applicator

When performing your semiannual gutter cleaning, you shouldn’t forget about the exterior of your gutters. Over time, dirt and grime can accumulate on the outside of gutters, and trying to scrub it away while perched on a ladder may not be the safest choice of action. Instead, purchase this specialized applicator and attach it to a long painters’ pole to clean your gutters while standing on terra firma. The applicator’s sturdy plastic tongs hold a sponge in place to wipe stains away quickly and easily.

5. iRobot Looj 330

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just tell a robot to clean out your gutters? Now you can — with the Looj 330 from iRobot (the same company that manufactures the Roomba automated vacuum cleaner). Just place the device in your gutter and hit the “clean” button. The Looj will move forward on tracks while brushing, lifting up, and removing debris in its path and then scraping the surface clean. It works with a rechargeable battery and fits perfectly into standard sized gutters. Don’t you just love technology?

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
