who do you use for gutter cleaning? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

I have flowers growing out of mine. LOL

LOL You must be one of my neighbors. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Lucky for you, I'm not!!! :)))) 

Gigix4 --- 2 years ago -

In all seriousness Vivian, I can't recommend anyone since my gutters get cleaned by the little ol' lady that lives here. :)

There may be some yard crew that do that sort of work but that too, I can't recommend any yard crews since that same little ol' lady that cleans my gutters, also does my yard work and she ain't lookin' for extra work.

Shame on you SighFi. Do I need to come over and show you how to DIY?

Soup and Max have a lot of time. 

TinktheSprite --- 2 years ago -

I get up there regularly with my blower and it's done in 15 mins. AND prevents flowers and other unwanteds from growing. 

Gigix4 --- 2 years ago -

I think SighFi's gutters are beyond "blowing" for cleaning. Sounds like they need "scooping". LOL 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Well. I shamed myself Into doing it,today. And there were 6 bags of scooped out yard stuff, with roots, leaves, grit and MUD! Omg lol.

rinsing it all down with the hose was the easy part.

I should have just turned it Into a huge flower box. 😡😡😡 

Gigix4 --- 2 years ago -

Well. I shamed myself Into doing it,today.

Well, okay! I'm so proud of you! It is a nasty job and somebody's got to do it, right? Now don't you feel good of getting 'er done? LOL

Yep Gigi, I do. I'm thinking, how many women do that? Good for me!

Then I hear my Dad whispering in my ear, "don't just push it off the roof, pick it up and bag it!!" And there goes my pride, and I toil on. Lmbo

There was little pine trees in there! No easy feat! 

Gigix4 --- 2 years ago -

Then I hear my Dad whispering in my ear, "don't just push it off the roof, pick it up and bag it!!"

LOL - Yup! Heard those very words myself while growing up, mowing grass with a reel mower ... then having to rake the crap up and bag it! (We didn't have gutters to clean in "them days")

Words to live by: If you're gonna' do, do it right! And found out that if you do it right the first time, you don't have to go back to finish it. hehe
I actually used that philosophy the entire 27 years I worked as a supervisor. :)

I don't even have gutters. (is that a bad thing?).

Ya'll just be careful climbing up on the roofs.I am terrified of breaking a hip at this stage of my life. 

Leila --- 2 years ago -

Gigi, you must be very fit. You are always fixing something or taking care of something. Do you ever just goof off and veg out? 

Gigix4 --- 2 years ago -

Do you ever just goof off and veg out?

Well, only when it gets dark outside. LOL

Just remember, a body in motion, stays in motion. A body at rest, stays at rest.

And, unlike Tink, I no longer climb up on the roof. At the ripe ol' age of 62, some 6 yrs ago, I gave up my extension ladder for getting on the roof - just a temptation that I didn't want around. I have a single story house so I just use an 8' ladder to get up on and clean out the gutters.

I look at every project and tell myself, "It's already broke so if I can't fix it, then I'll call a professional". You would be surprised how much stuff is not that hard to fix. I'm about to tackle replacing the pump on my gas pressure washer because I refuse to pay $350 to fix something I only paid $375 for. Wish me luck. :) 

Leila --- 2 years ago -

Wish me luck. :)

Oh, you'll do it! I have no doubt.

Mine have gutter screens on them that keep the big things out. The debris, leaves, and pine needles build up on top of the screen and block heavy rains. It was sunny out there so at dusk I went up and cleared it off. Next time, I won't wait so long and keep it an easy job. This time it took over 1/2 hour. I don't mind being on the roof. It's getting up and down that 8 ft. ladder that scares the crap out of me!
