How to Clean Your Gutters

Sunny Gainesville has been covered with clouds and if you take a look at the forecast, you will only see rainy days ahead. It’s that time of the year when the weather we are used to changes and it’s important to be prepared for it.

Water can be a potential threat and if you don’t take care, it may end up damaging your roof, foundation and ceilings. The first step to prevent all these problems is really easy, that’s why at Dreyer’s DKI in Gainesville we would like to tell you about a simple and quick method to clean your gutters.


Remember that you will have to climb a ladder and you should feel comfortable working at a height, otherwise you should hire someone to help you. Wear sturdy shoes and fitting clothes and beware of electrical lines. Remember to check the forecast and never perform this task during a rainy day.


Put your work gloves on and remove any debris you may find in your gutters. You can also use a trowel, and remember to bring a bucket to get rid of the waste. Once you are done, use your hose to wash away any remains. It’s that simple.


You have to make sure your downspouts are draining the water away from your property. If you have a clog, you can easily remove it by setting your hose to full pressure and pointing it down your downspout to remove any obstruction.
