———> Unclog The Downspouts
Make sure the downspouts are clear. After all the gutters are cleaned out, run the water hose down the downspout at full pressure.
If the water backs up out of the top, a clog is present. Normally, it can be unclogged by tapping on the side of the downspout.
Otherwise, the clog may move to the underground drain.
————> Get A Gutter Scoop
Scooping out the leafy debris seems to be the best overall method for cleaning out gutters.
An excellent tool for this job is a plastic scooping tool, which can be purchased at most hardware stores.
Plastic scooping tools are unique because the front scooping edge is very thin and forms itself to the bottom of the gutter trough, making it easy to scoop out even the toughest debris in any size gutter system.
