Gutter Cleaning Tools Found At Bunnings
With gutter cleaning products like the gutter vacuum, gutter scoop and telescopic gutter cleaner, Bunnings stocks a wide range of items that they claim are the perfect tools for cleaning gutters. Let’s take a look at the value of these products and why they may not be all they’re cracked up to be when it comes to achieving a quality gutter clean.
What type of gutter cleaning tools does Bunnings stock?
When it comes to gutter cleaning tools, Bunnings offers quite a lot of options. Here are just a few of their best selling gutter cleaning products…
- Gutter scoops
- Telescopic reaching poles
- Gutter rakes
- Gutter blowers
Aside from these products (and more) that work directly on your gutters, like the gutter scoop and gutter vacuum, Bunnings also offers items that help with cleaning gutters like ladders and protective equipment that can be quite effective for expert and amateur gutter cleaners alike…but that’s not what we’re here to talk about today. We’re here to see whether Bunnings gutter cleaning tools are really as effective as they’re advertised to be.
Should you use a Bunnings gutter cleaner tool on your gutter?
Honestly, we wouldn’t recommend it. Most gutter cleaning tools from Bunnings simply aren’t cut out for the job. They either don’t have the power to do the job as well as traditional gutter cleaning techniques or they’re not sturdy enough to hack the heavy work. In saying that, one of the gutter cleaning tools Bunnings supplies is a trusty tool that our team here at Box Gutter Cleaning rely on. Read on to find out which tool it is!
Why is using a gutter cleaner Bunnings supplies a bad idea for your gutters?
The number one reason for us is that a home gutter cleaning job is generally not going to be as effective as calling in the professionals. Overall, the money you spend on a professional gutter cleaner works out to be more cost effective than the combination of factors that may occur when cleaning your own gutters with tools from Bunnings or another hardware store.
For example, you’ll need to purchase the Bunnings gutter cleaner tools which are often not cheap. Then, you’ll probably find yourself having to clean the gutters more frequently as you likely won’t be able to carry out the task as well as a professional gutter cleaner would. This will mean replacing your Bunnings gutter cleaning tools frequently as they wear out. You may also find that Bunnings gutter cleaning products can damage your gutters and the surrounding roof, if not used correctly, resulting in costly repairs. You never need to worry about that when you hire an expert from Box Gutter Cleaning.
There are other non-monetary reasons to consider as well. Cleaning your own gutters with products that may not be up to standard can be quite dangerous. Climbing ladders without the appropriate safety equipment and experience can be very dangerous for yourself and others in the area.
So, even though it’s possible to carry out a DIY gutter clean using Bunnings gutter cleaning supplies, we do not recommend it as we know just how dangerous and costly gutter cleaning can be if not carried out by experts with quality tools and know-how.
Are there any gutter cleaning tools Bunnings stocks that we’d recommend?
As mentioned above, there is one Bunnings gutter cleaner that we do use here at Box Gutter Cleaning…the gutter rake!
This gutter cleaning tool is actually fantastic and we use it in almost all our gutter cleaning jobs. It’s the perfect size to fit most gutters and works to help us break up and remove bulky bits of debris, as well as reaching into corners and crevasses within the gutter system.
Aside from that, we choose to rely on professionally supplied gutter cleaning tools, or simply go with the old-school technique of getting our hands (well, our protective gloves) dirty.
