To find a contractor, Search the List for Gutter Cleaners in your area and their reviews and ratings.


To get a tool to do it yourself, you can find them online a lot of places and at some home improvement stores. If you are not going over about 20 feet up, you can make your own gutter washer out of 3/4" screw-joint PVC pipe (1/2" is too flimsy if going up 2 stories, and also reduces flow a lot), with an upside-down J shape at the top to direct the flow down into the gutter at an angle, and a hose thread adapter at the bottom to hook garden hose on to. Cost about $25 including pipe, fittings, adapter. For about $5 more you can put on a ball shutoff valve at the bottom too. Threaded PVC pipe joint allows you to break it down to 10' or shorter lengths if you are making it for second story gutters or to reach far enough up to clean the lower part of a valley.


Here is a video on how to do it, but you do not need the cap - just open end works fine, or you can put a reducer on to 1/2" for a stronger stream.

If using on a roof surface, be sure water flow is always directed downslope, not upward under shingles or tiles.
