Without gutter guards, be aware of your fall risk.
The real-life dangers of cleaning your gutters.
Outside the home, cleaning gutters cause many serious injurious falls every season.
The ISHN (Industrial Safety and Hygiene News) statistic shows 500,000 falls occur from ladders annually; 97% occur at home or on farms. More alarming is that out of fatal falls, 38% are from a ladder or roof.
With gutters free of leaves and objects, you stay safe from possible fall injury during gutter cleaning. Stop fall risk! Safety is important. Additionally, as we all get older, injuries become more serious and even fatal. An older person has a higher risk factor due to bone health. For an older adult, the dangers of gutter cleaning become greater. Don’t put yourself at risk any longer.
US Home Exteriors gutter guard protection eliminates fall risk from ladders or roofs. We provide a hands-free maintenance system so you will never have to climb a ladder to empty the gutter trough again. The hooded leaf guard system forces leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris to slide off the roof, keeping the gutters free and clear. Further, it prevents small rodents from nesting in the gutter trenches.
Gutter maintenance involves risk. Climbing on a ladder to remove leaves that clog water flow is dangerous. Know the fall risk factors about gutter cleaning.
You may think you can handle a ladder, but with over 500,000 falls per year, we urge you to rethink your fall risk assessment. It is easier to prevent falls than to heal a fracture. What are among the top reasons for a fall related injury to occur when cleaning gutters?
Unstable ladder due to uneven ground or setting
Use of an old or poorly maintained ladder
Vertigo and dizziness
Clothing snags that cause a fall
Inappropriate footwear or worn-out soles that slip
Contact with electrical wiring
Improper use of the ladder, such as stepping on the highest rung
Being startled, usually by small vermin hiding in the gutter trough
Extended reach beyond the balance point
Using the wrong type of ladder for the job

The Benefits of a professionally installed gutter protection system by Us Home Exteriors
A “by-the-numbers” look at some of the benefits you’ll gain by getting a gutter protection system.
Save money, no longer hire seasonal gutter cleaning. It is easy to see a return on investment when you no longer have to pay a company to clean your gutters every season. Remove the annual fee and no longer need to hire out professional maintenance or perform seasonal cleanup on your own.
Avoid falls or injury. No homeowner wants to be out of commission for recovery or in physical therapy from a fall injury that can easily be prevented. Additionally, an older patient has a longer recovery time for injury.
Avoid possible hospital bills and recovery costs. The high expenditure for hospital bills and physical therapist costs is something everyone easily wishes to dodge. Most of us know all too well how quickly these bills add up.
Avoid a homeowner’s insurance claim. Insurance claims often want to know if there were ways to prevent falls that occur. The investigation could find you at fault for known fall risks or failure to take proper fall prevention measures. Not only will the insurance claim be a potential hassle, but if settled, you’ll likely see your premiums go up.
No maintenance upkeep every season. The covered gutter system is focused on being low maintenance and does not require leaf removal. If, for some reason, the system does clog, call us. Your gutter cleaning problems are over.
Gutters continue to flow free of clogs. Peace of mind knowing the gutter guards are working correctly all year long. Additionally, you reduce possible roof damage from ice buildup and gutters clogging up.
Avoid contact with harmful bacteria and molds that build up in clogged gutters. Ask any nurse, and they will tell you bacteria make us sick. Coming in direct contact with bacteria and mold attacks our immune system. The CDC Center for Disease Control frequently warns adults of the dangers of mold. Certainly, an older person is at increased risk. When these bacterias enter our system, they are tough to overcome and are downright dangerous to our bodies.
Avoid possible small rodents. The covered system prevents small rodents from getting into the gutters and causing damage to the roof and gutter system or building nests that clog. Furthermore, no one wants to encounter rodents when cleaning out a gutter trench. These vermin are yet another risk factor that disease control warns about. Rodents have multiple risk factors. They carry diseases and can bite. Stay clear!
