Gutter Cleaning is just a very dangerous task but if you follow some simple safety rules you are able to reduce the chance significantly.
Firstly, gutter cleaning is an essential part of one’s home’s maintenance routine. You must clean or have gutter cleaning London your gutter’s cleared at least twice a year. This will prevent water damage due to blocked gutters.
1.Make sure your ladder is established on level ground
2.Put the ladder up at the least 3 rungs above the gutter you is likely to be clearing.
3.Ask someone to hold underneath of the ladder for additional safety and to cut back the chance of ladder – slip.
4.Keep at the very least 3 points of contact on the ladder at all times. i.e. 2 feet and a hand or 2 hands and a foot.
5.Never lean off the ladder to achieve more than 0.5 metres to your left or right – move the ladder instead, it could take several extra minutes but it’ll stop you safe in the long run.
N.B. If you may get a Ladder Mate system for underneath rung of one’s ladder that stops the ladder sliding out then all the greater but obviously this may possibly not be possible as a result of expense, over £100 for a fresh one.
Make use of a builders bucket and clear the gutters by hand, moving the ladder along as you go, only trained professionals should use extendable poles as they need specific working at height skills.
