To many people, hiring someone to clean the gutters on their house sounds like an unreasonable expense. Isn’t that something they can do themselves? What they don’t realize is how dangerous gutter cleaning can be without the proper training. Working for that long on a ladder or step-ladder can be extremely precarious, and it’s all too easy to fall and injure yourself. In fact, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 160,000 emergency room visits ever year are due to people falling off ladders.
It may sound cheaper to do it yourself, but every time you decide to do the job without the help of a professional, you run the risk of injury. That could mean enormous hospital bills plus days of missed work with no income. Hiring someone to do this dangerous job for you completely eliminates that risk. It’s just a better investment.
A friend or neighbor may offer to do it for free, but this carries the exact same risk along with it. If they fall, you would even be liable for their injuries, since it happened on your property. It’s just not worth the risk. You want to make sure you’re hiring someone whose workers’ compensation insurance will cover any of their injuries, leaving you with no legal responsibility if something should go wrong.
