First 2019 roof gutter check

looks as if a small roof gutter needs a clean, so it is out with the Skyvac later on.

Same as ours. The green moss from our roof gets everywhere.
We just had a squirrel chew part of the gutter . It seems to be trying to get into the fashia or roof.

The skyvac sounds a good idea.

All i can say it is the best bit of kit I have bought. Yes it does cost a bit (around 450.) Considering to have our gutters cleaned is 80 a time and I have already cleaned them several times already (4 huge oak trees in my garden) it has well paid for itself. not only that but no hanging about waiting for someone to turn up to do the job

what I do is put a small compact camera on the poles that come with the machine to inspect the gutters first.

somehow I can't put a video on the thread to show you

I use a small cheap flexable tripod and tape the legs to the pole, cheap and easy way.
