Easy How-To For Cleaning Gutters and Downspouts

Brought to you by the experts at Lowe's Home Improvement:

Cleaning gutters is an easy job to put off, but the longer you wait the worse it can get. Thoroughly cleaning your gutters every spring and fall will help keep them working like they're supposed to.
Debris can build up and cause damage to your downspouts and cause water damage to your roof.

To clean out your gutters you will need: a trowel, ladder, buckets, garden hose, gutter cleaning attachment and gutter sealant.

Great post and information for the home owner to read. Owning a home requires maintaining it a little maintenance can prevent large repairs later on.  Thanks for sharing the tips I hope you have a great afternoon.

Hi Lisa Von Domek the easiest way is to do what I do....hire a handyman for $150 to clean the gutters once a year!!

Maintenance is not fun Sam Shueh but the cost of not doing it...is worse!

I agree Pat Champion an ounce of prevention...or in this case, maintenance...

Thank you Belinda Spillman you don't want to discover that your gutters are clogged once the rain starts pouring down!

And you have just mentioned my home George Souto, the gutters get filled with leaves fall and spring due to our Live Oak trees!

Hi Lisa Von Domek ,  I have turned to Lowes videos on several projects around the house.

Thanks for sharing this tip, Lisa.  I need to check to see how mine are, it's been a while.

People need to know...it isn't just the leaves and sticks but also the granular material from the roof that can build up in the gutters and cause problems.

On rentals of mine that do NOT have a steep roof, I use a leaf blower to clean them.
