Article Summary: 

Cleaning your gutters and downspouts at least twice a year is essential to prevent clogs and water damage to your home's roof, walls, and foundation. To clean them, you'll need a ladder, gloves, a gutter scoop, a hose, and a plastic bucket. Start by removing large debris by hand and then use a gutter scoop to remove any hard or stuck-on remnants. Use a hose to wash the gutter in the opposite direction towards the downspout. Check for clogs in your downspouts and use a hose to dislodge any clogs. Check your gutters for leaks and repair them using gutter sealant or plastic roofing cement. Gutter guards can be installed to prevent debris from piling up. In the event of severe weather damage to your gutters and downspouts, inspect your property for damage and contact a professional or your insurance company for help.
