Can gutter cleaning be done in the middle of the Vancouver-Surrey winter?

Gutter cleaning is a crucial part of home maintenance. Ensuring that your gutters are clean, debris-free, and working properly is a very important part of keeping your home safe and sound. Leaks and cracks can cause horrible damage to the exterior of a home, both above and below the ground.

But a big concern for many people is how to keep your gutters clean during a wet, rain-soaked Vancouver winter. Most of Canada has to deal with ice and snow in the winter, but homeowners in Surrey, Vancouver, and the rest of the Lower Mainland have to deal with a preponderance of water.

The question isn’t whether or not a homeowner should clean their gutters in the wintertime. The question is whether they can.

The simple answer is yes. Gutter cleaning can be done year round. But, of course, there are some warning and concerns that come with this. Here are a few things that homeowners should be aware of when they start planning a winter gutter cleaning.

First, using ladders in bad weather, especially on wet ground, is always something to be concerned about. With the heavy rains that make for a Vancouver winter, the ground can be become much slipperier and ladders can become must more dangerous.

Second, the lack of available light can add to the danger. Winter days in Vancouver can be dismal, with very bad visibility and low natural light. Being able to see what you’re doing is always important.
