Hi! I'm Peter Awando from Water-Flow Gutter Solutions and today I'm going to be showing you how to clean your gutters. In this segment, I will show how to clean the rest of the gutter section by section until you reach to the end. As you can see right now, this area is already clean, the downspout is clean, the outlet is clean, and everything is fine, so now you want to concentrate on the other side of the gutter. So what you're going to do first of all is have your bucket close by, it's a safety thing again. You don't want to sit stretching out and anything like that. After you have a bunch of the leaves, just take them, drop them into the bucket, chances are, you're going to have some leaves dropped on the roof. Gently, just tap all of them into the gutter and continue the same process. Stretch a little bit more and get more of the leaves, take them, drop them on your bucket. Stretch out again, get the leaves, stretch, put them in the bucket. Something that happens, as you can see, small leaves and small particles remain in one section, so what you do is just tap on the gutter and everything comes together. All the small particles come together and all you have to do is lift them up. Gently tap on the gutter, everything collects together and drop it into the gutter. As soon as that's done, you can see this section is very, very clean. So all you have to do is you want to move to the next section, but before you do that, you want to make sure you have your bucket with you and your drill. You can just take the drill, put it into bucket, then you can easily go down in there. You don't want to go down and realize you forgot your bucket on the roof. That's how you clean the rest of the gutter. The other thing you're going to do, as soon as the whole gutter is clean, chances are, you'll have some small debris, some small size of things like those that you want to run off. That's where you can use a water hose. All you have to do is stand at one end and just run the hose through and all the water will collect everything. That's something that's very optional. For myself, I don't do it all the time because what happens is, when you clean, all the rinse is going to get every debris and all the solid out. So it's just an option, something that you want to do, but it's really, really not necessary. So at this moment, I'm going to show you the next segment, how you can basically maintain your gutters, every year round, and make sure that everything is clean. That's how you clean gutter, section by section. Thank You!
