1. Scoop out loose debris and leaves.
You can start by using a narrow garden trowel or a gutter scoop to scoop out those loose debris and leaves working away from your drain outlets. You can then scoop them out to a plastic bag to minimize cleaning afterwards.
2. Use a high-pressure hose to clean mud out of the gutter.
Work the hose and try avoiding splash into your balcony or garden. Use brush if necessary and work them towards the drain outlets.
3. Inspect any leaks or damages.
4. Watch for moss or algae.
Moss thrives in a damp, shady environment. For this reason it often grows well on the north side of a roof or under overhanging trees that provide shade. Over time it can cause your roof to break down. You can try pressure-washer when needed, just make sure that you don’t overdo it. Professional moss cleaner
5. Evaluate roof shingles.
If your roof is more than 20 years old, most shingles can already be worn, check if it’s time to replace them. Have a look at them closely and decide if gluing them will do the job or you need to repair or replace the cracked ones. When you decide to do this, it’s better to find a warm, dry afternoon and make sure you give them time to dry.
