Spring Cleanup

Be ladder smart when cleaning your gutter




As temperatures start warming up, you can finally clean

the gunk out of your gutters. Make sure the ladder

you use isn’t too short — it should extend at least 3

feet over the top of the roof. Put it on firm, level

ground. If the ground is uneven, you can buy “leg

levelers” at a hardware store. Place straight or

extension ladders at a 75-degree angle.

Finally, have someone hold the bottom.
