I love the fall. I love the colors on the trees. I love the blue sky. I love the breeze temperatures, low humidity. I love everything about it except one thing that is the leaves. Leaves that got everywhere! They get on your sidewalk, patios, driveways, your lawn and they get up on your roof and then your gutters.
Now, there are several ways to clean leaves out of gutters incase you do not happen to have the gutter guards.
One of the ways that works pretty well, but it takes a lot of time. Let is go ahead and set up a ladder, climb the ladder, reach for the leaves, pull them out, maybe put them in a bucket and make sure you do not over reach. Because if you reach too far, you might tip the ladder and you can fall and of course you have to move the ladder very frequently to do it that way. If your roof is also low pitch, you can actually get up on the roof, slide along and neither collect those leaves and put them in a bag or in a bucket or just throw the leaves over the roof and clean those up later or you can use a power blower.
You know, these power blowers are fantastic for getting leaves out of the gutters and off the roofs and I will tell you why. They blow high speed air out of this nozzle and it just pushes the leaves effortlessly out of the gutters and down spams and off all the roof areas. Now you got to make sure that the roof is dry and safe to walk on and use gym shoes not hard soled leather shoes. Always try to work from upper roofs down the lower roofs so that you do not have to do a double work. Just aim in the nozzle right into the gutter and just blow the leaves right at your way. It works best of course if the leaves are dry.
As you can see, this nifty back pack blower makes the job a lot easier and faster.
