Association of Certified Handyman Professionals – September 2013 – This is an excellent time of year to offer gutter cleaning services. For the next few months leaves will invade gutters all over the country. With a simple extension ladder and a bucket you can help your customer prep the home for winter. Pull out the leaves, twigs, plant growth, and roof shingle granules. Don’t forget the spouts.
A leaf blower is a quicker but messier way to clean gutters and roof valleys.
Please practice the 1:4 ratio rule. The ladder should be placed 1 foot away from the wall for every 4 feet. For example: An 8ft extended ladder’s feet should be 2 feet away from the wall.
