Danger: Unsafe Gutter Cleaning Practices

cleaning gutters from ladder
Unsafe practices happen when the boss isn’t around or when workers are trying to rush. Sometimes the business owner just chooses the methods because he doesn’t know better.

I found these photos searching the internet and some of them are even featured on business websites that show how they clean or work using ladders! If this doesn’t bother you then look on craigslist for gutter cleaning. Just remember insurance is extra for those guys!
