Start With the Ladder  

A professional gutter cleaning Brentwood TN company will most likely utilize a ladder to access your property’s gutters.  Because gutters are attached to the fascia board of your home, it makes complete sense that you will need a ladder to access the gutters.  Most homeowners look at this task like it’s mindless and easy and believe that anyone can do it. However, what they don’t see is the simple fact that professionals work on a ladder all day long.  Their bodies have adapted to being elevated off the ground and they have grown accustomed to the proper balance needed to be on a ladder and work on it safely. Professionals know how to check the ladder for proper angles and they also know how to place the ladder in a secure location and adjust for uneven ground.  The average homeowner does not account for this and, therefore, it is the recommendation of Window Ninjas for the average homeowner not to attempt cleaning their own gutters. It’s too costly for the simple fact of potential injury or death. Leave the ladder work to Window Ninjas and simply give them a call at 615-988-6699 or online at

Water is the Last Resort

We’ve all seen those comedy skits where a person is cleaning their gutters while standing on a ladder and holding a garden hose.  Inevitably, the garden hose gets caught up and tangles the character, bringing him or her crashing to the ground. All with a smile and laughter and the “aww shucks” moment.  Well, in the real world, that aww shucks moment is really a “oh my god” followed by an “ouch that hurt” moment! 

Window Ninjas does not use a water hose to clean your gutters.  First and foremost, it’s a safety issue. And secondly, it just makes a mess!  Cleaning gutters by hand is the best way to clean. We remove all debris by hand and we put the debris in bags to keep it off your landscaping.  Using a water hose would just push all the debris up and over your gutters, making a big muddy mess. You don’t want all that gutter junk all over your home’s siding and we don’t either.  Plus, the dryer the material coming out of your gutters, the cleaner the job will be. Of course there are some instances where water is needed to flush a downspout or ensure proper water direction in your gutters, but it is definitely not the answer with gutter cleaning Brentwood TN service from Window Ninjas.  For more information, simply call Window Ninjas at 615-988-6699. Let our staff of professionals explain how our gutter cleaning service is cost effective for you.  

Clean the Roof

Before starting to clean all of the debris out of your gutters, the roof and valleys of your home should be cleaned off and have any debris removed.  You don’t want half of a job performed and you don’t want all the debris to fill up your gutters the next time it rains. This is why Window Ninjas removes all debris from your roof first, before removing the debris from your gutters.  

Unclogging and Clearing the Downspouts

After all the gutter junk and yucky debris is removed from your roof and gutters, water or other special tools can be run down the downspout to ensure that there are no blockages.  Sometimes sticks can get down the downspout and other debris can collect, causing blockages. Be very mindful of the elbows and turns the downspouts make. These tend to be the areas that blockages occur most.  Window Ninjas utilizes a weighted item to verify proper downspout clearing and they can disconnect and clear the debris if necessary. Plus, they are skilled in putting the downspouts back together with the appropriate rivets needed.  We are the experts so give us a call when you need a gutter cleaning Brentwood TN service.

Window Ninjas recommends having a gutter cleaning Brentwood TN service performed twice a year.  Thorough cleaning and inspections should be performed to ensure that the water is flowing properly and not backing up or over your gutters.  An inspection of your fascia boards, as well as your roof and foundation, should be part of this process. Once in the spring and again in the fall or early winter (possibly all three) is the optimum time to have your gutters cleaned so that ugly repair bills will not pop up.  It’s more cost effective to hire a professional to clean and maintain the gutters on your home, rather than to fix issues that arise from a lack of gutter cleaning maintenance.
