Getting the waste out of your gutters.
Using the brush handle will allow you to scoop the debris out of narrow gutters. Place this into your garbage bag and continue this process around the perimiter of your house. The safest method is to sit approximately 50cm away from your gutter and shuffle along as you are cleaning. Once complete, it is recommended to use a leaf blower to remove the fine debris that may have been missed. Lastly using your hose, flush your gutter by aiming the water toward your down pipe.
