Frequently Asked questions
Q: What all comes with the EZsmart Gutter Cleaning System?
A: Everything you need for this to be the best gutter cleaning tool.
Extension pole that reaches 18 feet high.
Mirror attachment so you can see what is in your gutters from the ground
Double sided gutter rake attachment so you can scoop out matted gunk
The EZsmart Blower with a powerful 120mph motor.
Q: What’s the best way to hold the pole when using the Gutter Cleaner tool for higher gutters?
A: When using longer length poles, be sure to raise the assembly starting at the gutter cleaner then walking your way "down" to the grips of the extension pole. More specifically, raise it like you would an extended ladder, don't lift it from the end like a fishing pole. Many new users try to lift while holding the extension pole from the bottom and that frequently leads to overexertion and excessive pole bending.
Q: Can the blower rest on the gutter while I am cleaning my gutters?
A: Absolutely. It’s designed to do just that. Let the unit rest completely on the gutter during use. The unit's unique "football" shape was designed to allow the blower to glide across the surface of the gutter, so that the gutter carries most of the weight (not the user).
Q: How can I tell if the blower is pushing out enough force?
A: When you place your hand in front of the blower, the force should feel about 3 times as strong as a hair dryer.
Q: How long does the Gutter Cleaner take to charge?
A: Internally, it has an 18 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery, and comes with an adapter/charger that plugs into a standard 110v AC wall outlet. A quick charge will take about 30 minutes and a full charge will take about 2 hours. Make sure that the tool is off while you are charging it, otherwise even though the light is green, it will not be charging.
Q: How long does the battery last?
A: The fully charged battery will last up to 17 minutes which is enough runtime to clean about 3 average-sized homes’ gutters. (Cleaning your gutters truly only takes a couple of minutes!)
Q: Does the EZsmart Gutter Cleaner effectively clean out “helicopters” from maple trees?
A: Yes! The tool is actually ideal for cleaning out “helicopters.” We’ve personally tested this. Our home office is in Omaha, Nebraska so we have a ton of maple trees!
Additionally, the EZsmart Gutter Cleaner is ideal for cleaning out any type of seeds, needles and shingle grit.
Q: Is there a warranty?
A: Yes, there is a 2 year warranty on the unit. If there are any problems, or the battery fails, we will send you a brand new EZsmart Gutter Cleaner.
Q: Does the EZsmart Gutter Cleaner blow out wet leaves?
A: Honestly, it depends on the situation. But it is fully capable in most instances. For the instances that it’s not capable, we have built and created the double sided rake attachment that comes with the unit.
Q: Can you use other extension poles?
A: Yes, if you don’t use the one we give you, then we recommend the Wooster 8 ft-16 ft Sherlock Extension Pole. We’ve personally tested the pole out and really like it. You can find it at most commercial tool stores, such as Home Depot. We highly recommend a hexagonal inner pole (not round). These tend to be stronger and the inner pole will not spin while the unit is in use.
