Health and Safety Standards: Why Is This A Must for Gutter Cleaners?

Feb. 17, 2017

Gutter cleaning is one aspect of maintaining residential properties that home owners dread because it is usually a filthy chore, especially if you don’t have the right type of cleaning tools. However, more than that, cleaning gutters can be dangerous because it requires one to mount the roof, this is especially true in regards to multistory commercial buildings where ladders can’t reach the roof safely.

Climbing on any roof is dangerous and poses a real safety risk to a person that has no experience. Also, the job of cleaning gutters poses a health risk because dirty or clogged gutter systems are a breeding ground for mold, mildew, bacteria, and all types of insects. Basically, without the proper tools, training and experience, gutter cleaning is a serious health and safety concern.

Health and Safety Standards are an Absolute Must for Gutter Cleaners

It is not recommended for anyone, even property owners themselves, to try and access a roof without the proper equipment and safety training, for obvious reasons. In fact, sad to say, but there are countless examples of people falling from roofs because of either not having the proper ladder, or that lacked safety training on how to use it properly. Not to mention, even professional roofers who have many years’ experience installing and maintain roofing have fallen off roofs because sometimes accidents just happen.

With that said, the roof maintenance industry has health and safety standards in place for good reason – to protect people who need to access roofs to conduct repairs and maintenance, such as gutter and roof cleaners.
