A Gutter Vacuum Systems Guide

Is it safe to clean gutters?

Yes, absolutely! Yes, absolutely! Cleaning gutters can be dangerous and tiring – especially if it’s done the old-fashioned method.

Climbing up and descending ladders. Moving ladders around the property.

You will get filthy by cleaning out the gutters manually. You can’t get the bigger stuff like leaves, twigs, and turf. It is difficult to find fine sediment. It will not wash away. It’s so fertile that weeds won’t grow back.

If a job is worth doing, it’s worthwhile doing well. That’s why gutter cleaning systems are so useful.

All gutters must be kept clean without exposing the ground.

No ladders, no mess, no brainer!

What is a Gutter Vacuum, and how do you use it?

A gutter vacuum system, an industrial-grade wet and dry vacuum designed for gutter clearing is heavy-duty and can be used in various applications. It uses the two dimensions of suction power, Inch Water Lift & LPM Air Flow, to remove dirt and root out any gutter growths.

The “weightlifting” strength and suction power of the Inch Water Lift.

LPM Airflow: This is the litres per hour airflow related to speed.

To reach gutters up to 4 stories high, the gutter vac uses high reach suction poles. High access suction poles, which are lightweight and rigid, are usually made from carbon fiber but can also be ordered in aluminium.

What makes a gutter vacuum different from a household vacuum?

Unlike a regular household vacuum, a wet and dry vacuum is designed to handle water and heavy, damp debris.

Two-part cleaning equipment comprises a motor unit and a collection room.

The motor unit’s internal parts are kept clean and separated from debris to prevent electrocution or damage.

The collection drum or canister is usually made of steel or polypropylene to handle high-velocity gutter debris that enters through a vacuum suction port.

What is a Gutter Vacuum?


The motor unit covers the vacuum collection drum. The rotating fan creates a vacuum by activating the motor. This forces air and gutter debris into the drum. The pressure and airflow slow down over the drum as debris and air race into it. This allows dirt and liquid particles to fall out of the air stream, collect in the drum’s bottom, and increase the pressure.

With all that mess and your feet planted on the ground, you might be wondering why you don’t use a gutter vacuum for cleaning gutters.
