How to Clean Gutters Before Repairing Them

Before you start any major repair on your gutters, it's important to clean them annually to ensure they are not clogged or damaged. To do this, you'll need to remove the old barbs and splints from the gutters and install each new set as soon as you remove the old one. This is also a great opportunity to upgrade your gutters with gutter or screen protectors or seamless gutters. If you notice standing water or mold near the foundation, it could be a sign that your gutters are clogged or have a defect in the system.

To clean them, you can use a pressure washer, but make sure you have secured them with new screws or spikes first. Cleaning your gutters before any major repair is essential to ensure they are drained and removed properly.
