Gutter Cleaning Wand Review
If you’re like most people, cleaning your rain gutters is one of your least favorite household chores. The Gutter Cleaner Wand is a useful tool designed to make gutter cleaning easier than ever before. Before buying one, you need to know if it does what the manufacturer claims it can do.
The Gutter Cleaner Wand is available for somewhere between £20 and £60 at large home improvement warehouses and through various online retailers such as Amazon. The wand has its own on/off valve and screws onto the end of any ordinary garden hose. The wand is adjustable to lengths of 41″ to 68″ making it simple and safe for you to reach your gutters for cleaning. The lightweight wand is easy to manoeuvre, which reduces fatigue while working.
How it Works
This product is simple enough for anyone to operate. Place the nozzle in the rain gutter and the water pressure flushes away leaves, twigs, and other debris. The device is also useful for other chores around the house, including washing off sidewalks and outdoor decks.
Is it Effective for Cleaning Out Gutters?
We have tested this type of product multiple times and have experienced mixed results. The water pressure is sufficient for flushing away loose leaves but if the debris is compacted and stuck in the gutter trough, it is much more difficult to work it loose and flush it away. You should expect to get wet while you are working with this cleaning tool because you stand underneath the roof while using it. You should understand that it is not effective for reaching higher gutters on homes with multiple levels. The maximum handle extension is less than six feet, so you should measure the height of your gutters and factor in your height before you consider purchasing the Gutter Cleaner Wand.
We would always recommend using the services of a professional gutter cleaning company as they have the exact equipment required to do the job quickly, cheaply and effectively.
