Spring is here!  Its clutter busting time!  Safely maintaining your home’s rain gutters will keep the water flowing properly away from its foundation.

This will help protect the integrity of your walls, siding and roof, by keeping your gutters working properly. No more dangerous ladder use!  Simply prepare your wet/dry vacuum by removing the filter for wet debris, plug in your extension cord and your Gutter Clutter Buster to your wet/dry vacuum’s 2.5 inch hose. Raise the Gutter Clutter Buster® up into the gutters and turn on your vacuum. Raise and lower the Gutter Clutter Buster® as you move along.  You will hear the debris being collected as you work your way around the perimeter of your home. Most clogs can be overcome by simply cutting the power to your vacuum temporarily. The Gutter Clutter Buster® gets all the debris, WET OR DRY and puts it into your vacuum canister for easy, simple no mess clean up.  This SAFER, more efficient method of cleaning gutters will save you time as well.  Enjoy using your Gutter Clutter Buster® and be safe!

Gutter cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home’s health.

Leaves, twigs, pine cones, needles, roof gravel and other debris can inhibit the flow of water through your gutters.

A spring cleanout is needed.  Even with gutter guards installed, debris accumulates that can divert water where it is not wanted.  Water damage can lead to extra maintenance costs for repairs, electrical outlets becoming dangerous, and can lead to mold growing in your walls. 

Every year in the United States over 500,000 people visit the emergency room due to ladder fall injuries.  Over 300 of those injuries resulted in death.

STAY OFF A DANGEROUS LADDER!

     Use your Gutter Clutter Buster 3 times per year and keep those gutters working properly.
