Ladders are useful, but have certain limitations and cannot easily access the tricky or difficult to reach areas like recessed or multi-tiered rooflines and dormers. Often a homeowner needs to stretch himself by using a ladder past and as a result, an accident can take place.
Gutter vacuums, having many feet of extended reach will be able to access safely these tricky areas from the ground. Any company that will utilize gutter vacuums will be promoting a very safe work environment.
This will be a bit tricky subject and it may depend on how you look at it. Any company having a rusted 1980s truck may demand a very low price, but most likely he does not have insurance, which must always be avoided while hiring a contractor. This can always end up you being liable for their injuries or damages.
Also, if the contractor is not professional enough to buy insurance, then his unprofessionalism will extend to many other areas e.g. showing up late, handling deficiencies, or never returning your phone calls.
Often it is more important to pay a little higher cost to get a better job done rather than accepting a clumsy job at a lower price. Just by paying 15 to 20% extra if you can get vacuum cleaned your gutter, it will offer you peace of mind.
If it is not possible to reach the entire area of your roof by using a ladder then it will be quite difficult and inconvenient to clean the gutter. No uninsured cleaner will ever like to climb up on your roof and take a risk of fall or skip from that spot.
Further, hand cleaning will be good enough only for a few big stuff like:
After some time soil will be formed in the gutter, as the roofing shingles will shed their granules and that will pile up into the gutter. All these micro-debris are very difficult to remove even by using gutter spoons. Using only a vacuum is effective enough to remove this debris and also ensure proper drainage.
