Here is the list of basic equipment and supplies you will need to start your gutter cleaning business (with links to buy each item). If you want a step-by-step guide on how to start your gutter cleaning business, check out my article on the topic here.
Note: If you buy any of these items through the link, I will make a small commission on the purchase at no additional cost to you.
The Equipment List
A very tall ladder (28′ – 32′)
Ladder Stabilizer (you need this to stabilize the ladder and keep you safe)
5 Gallon Bucket (to collect debris)
Heavy Duty Rubber Gloves (to deal with bugs, moldly leaves and all sorts of things you do not want to touch with your bare hands)
Gutter Scoop (this can collect more debris from your gutters faster)
Using the items above, you can clean gutters with your hands, but there are other ways to get the job done.
For example, you can use a leaf blower, wet/dry vacuum, and/or a pressure washer to tackle the job. Check out this article by Bob Villa that shows you 5 ways to clean gutters if you want to know some alternative strategies for cleaning gutters quickly and efficiently.
Of course, in addition to equipment, you are going to be need some form of transportation to get you and your equipment to customer sites. If you don’t own a truck that can carry the large ladder, you can rent one out for jobs as needed. But once you make enough money to buy (or at least finance) a decent used truck, you should do so.
