Why cleaning your gutters yourself is a really bad idea…
While cleaning your own gutters might seem like a job you can do yourself, the list of reasons why you shouldn’t is endless. The major reason why it is a terrible idea is your safety.
Cleaning your own gutters might seem like a small risk to take but the consequences can be deadly. Between 2001 and 2012, there were at least 276 deaths in Australia from ladder falls, with most occurring at home.
There is never a good enough reason to put your life at risk when there are professionals who can climb up on your roof and safely clean your gutters for you. The injuries you can sustain from a ladder fall can be life-altering or fatal, for not just you but your family.
Your local Gutter-Vac team have all the correct equipment, training, and insurance to effectively and efficiently clean your gutters. Don’t risk a fall, give Gutter-Vac a call.
