Ladder Safety

‘Tis the season for gutter cleaning again! One of the most important things you need to consider before cleaning your gutters on your own is ladder safety. Sure, ladders could be dangerous, but there are measures you can take ensure your safety.

Before even considering to clean your gutters yourself, the first thing you have to consider is that you have a ladder that is of sound quality. You don’t want to climb a ladder that doesn’t look sound. So make sure you have a ladder that is properly taken cared of to ensure your safety.

Then, you need to consider yourself and what you wear when using a ladder to clean your gutters. You should be mindful of your footwear. It is pretty obvious that footwear such as flip flops are unsafe when climbing a ladder. Wear the proper shoes, such as work boots or sneakers, and make sure that the laces are tied properly. You also need to consider is wearing a proper tool belt if you are working with tools. It is not advisable to carry tools with your hands when climbing a ladder.

Now for the ladder itself. The first thing you should do is get some ladder mitts.  Ladder mitts are a soft rubber mitt that fits on the top of the ladder.  They  protect the ladder from scratching the siding of a house and they grip to the surface they are leaning against and prevent the top of the ladder from sliding while climbing or working.  You can also purchase a ladder stabilizer if you wish.

You can also add adjustable leg extension to a ladder. These attach to the feet of the ladder and extend to about a foot.  The great thing about this type of device is that you are able to adjust one leg longer then the other which is great for uneven ground or working on stairs.

You should also know where to place your ladder. You want to make sure that the ground is as level as possible. You don’t want to position it on a slippery surface. Carrying the ladder upright is also the easiest way to transport it.

These are just a few tips to ensure your safety wen you clean your gutters, or maybe some tall windows. But, if you don’t have the time to do this yourself, we at Larsen Window Cleaning can do it for you at a very affordable price. Just give us a call at 626-303-3664.

How to Choose the Best Window Cleaning Company

1. Know what previous customers say (Testimonials)

A lot of companies will say they are reliable, but until you talk to the owner or other customers of that company, you can’t be so sure. It would be a good idea for you to ask for your potential window cleaning company‘s testimonials or check them out online

Home Advisor is one online source for testimonials from home owners.  We are pleased to say that Larsen Window Cleaning is Home Advisor certified.

Tips for Gutter Cleaning

It’s fall again and for all of you homeowners out there, now is the best time to clean your gutters. It may be tedious, disgusting and possibly a dangerous task (one misstep and you’re on your way to the hospital) but someone has to do it.

The things you would need in cleaning your gutters are: a garden hose with normal pressure with a grip trigger spray nozzle, a sturdy ladder, a bucket (for collecting debris),  gutter scoop, gloves, protective eyewear, rubber shoes, downsprout chain and gutter guards.

Our first tip is for you to use a garden hose with normal pressure (30-40 psi) and attach a pistol grip trigger spray nozzle into it. You can use just one hand with this type of nozzle, and you can easily hang it on the front edge of the gutter while moving the ladder or using a gutter scoop.

Our second tip is to use a sturdy ladder. We advise against wooden ladders because they are very unstable. We highly recommend that your ladder has a shelf strong enough to hold a 5 gallon bucket to collect gutter debris.

Before going up the ladder to clean your gutters, inspect the ladder for defects and make sure that you set it on firm ground (make sure that there are no holes on the ground). When climb the ladder, always remember the “three point rule”. First point: try to have both hands and legs firmly on the ladder to ensure stability. Second point: never lean out from the ladder and balancing out of one leg to clean the debris. Third point: if possible, let someone hold the ladder base for additional stability.

Our third tip is to use “gutter getter scooper”, which is available in most hardware stores. This tool makes it easy to scoop out the toughest debris because the front scooping edge is very thin.

Our fourth tip is to use gloves and protective eyewear. Gloves protect your hands from dirt and bacteria that you get from all the animal droppings that are trapped in your gutter. Protective eyewear is equally important because you never know what comes out of the downsprout when cleaning your gutters.

Our fifth tip is to use rubber shoes. Rubber soled shoes are the best type of shoes to wear when you are going up the ladder and walking on the roof. It can help prevent you from slipping and falling because it tends to adhere best.

In gutter cleaning, you also need to unclog your downsprouts. Once you have ensured that your downsprouts  unclogged (by running the hose down the downsprout at full pressure), Our sixth tip is to use a downsprout chain instead of a traditional downsprout. The rainwater runs down the chain gracefully.

Our last tip is to use quality gutter guards. Using a quality gutter guard can help eliminate the need to clean out gutters often.

We know, this is a lot of work. But, cleaning your gutters is imperative before winter comes. Cleaning your gutters twice a year is actually preferable. But if you don’t have the time to clean your gutters, or see it as such a daunting task, you can always call the professionals at Larsen Window Cleaning Service to the job. Call 626-303-3664 to set an appointment. Winter is around the corner and there is no better time to do it than right now!
