    Is it just a case of getting up there with a bucket and trowel?

    I have an electric power/jet washer thing, can I use that?

    Ladders and scoop it out, I've just bought the gutter tools from 4 shore, attach them to a pole and scoop it out. As - M- said defo don't use a jetwash as it'll go everywhere and you'll be there 5 times longer to clean up!

    try tell that to the families of 50 odd people that died while working of ladders last year in the uk , never mind the thousands that were badly injured or wheelchair bound .safety is your personal responsibility and if you choose to ignore it good luck to you

    Haha no need for that nonsense? Are you for real! Safety is critical and makes the job a lot easier, if i was a client I know what I'd prefer to see. And I'd make rather have the proper kit to do the job safely and efficiently, even if it does take the whole extra 3 minutes to set up!!

    There's no difference cleaning gutters without them stabilisers than cleaning windows with out them.. Would you use them stabilisers on every window cleaning job?

    I agree with how you can do it, but not the nonsense part.

    Safety is never nonsense.
