Cleaning Your Gutters
Once you’re ready, put your ladder up, but not against a gutter. The weight can warp or break the guttering. Start your cleaning near one of the downspouts.
Climb up there with your trowel and one of your buckets. Use them to get rid of the larger debris, such as leaves and twigs.
When you take care of the bigger things, move to the gutter end that is opposite of the downspout, even if this means repositioning the ladder. Once you have cleared any larger obstructions and clumps of leaves, use your hose to start flushing out finer materials. If you have the gutter-cleaning attachment, you might not even have to spend so much time up there, if any at all.
Some drone enthusiasts use their toys to get close-up looks inside their gutters without ever leaving the ground! In any event, if water does not drain from your gutter, then you need to verify the downspout strainer is clear, and possibly clean again if need be.
What do I do if I have a clogged downspout?
If your gutter water still won’t drain after this, then you might have a clogged downspout.
If this happens, then the first thing you need to check is the end of the drain. If your downspout goes underground, then you might have to remove it from the piping as necessary.
