When should you clean out your gutters? And how often?

When should you clean out your gutters?  And how often?
Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year– once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early fall. But it varies considerably by region, by the location of your house and trees, by the types of trees, and by how much wind there is.

How do I use the Gutter Viper with my Hand Held Leaf blower?

Using the  Gutter Viper with a handheld leaf blower is easy. We provide a polyester   strap that fits around the handle and allows you to carry the leaf blower on your shoulder, and free up both hands to work the Gutter Viper.   It works very well.  And hand held leaf blowers are typically more than powerful enough to work with the Gutter Viper.

What size leaf blower people ask?  Well, its really dependent on getting lots of flow of air, and that is measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM.  We recommend leaf blowers that are rated over 400 CFM.  Most leaf blowers of this sort cost about $150 to upwards of $250, depending on their power.  The more powerful blowers will make blowing your lawn much faster.  But anything over 400 CFM works well with the Gutter Viper
