Take a hand trowel on the end of a stick and scrape the wet and clump stuff out. Blow the remainder out with a blower and take up the mess. Quickest easiest and safest way. The vac would take a while and it's easy to get tripped up on.

Here's what I do. Single story ONLY. 8' step ladder, I clean them out by hand and as I move the ladder I drag behind it a 8'x8' trap, throwing the leaves on it as I work. I dont have to clean the gutter up or the lawn or anything else. I prefer not using the blower.

I'm a part time UPS employee that has GREAT insurance. I get 98% of my income from my business, so for me it's not worth the risk for the $50-60 dollars. I dont want to take a chance on a fall. Single story only.

I have an tool you can buy that attaches to any power drill. It has spinning brush attachments, bucket scoop for large heavy debris and a water sprayer that you can attach a hose to rinse it all out with. The cool thing is that it has extendable poles that are 4 feet apiece for 2 and 3 story buildings so you don't risk climbing up a latter and falling. I charge $1 a foot for one story and $2 a foot for 2 story or for gutters with large debris (like plants growing out the top).

I do not blame you one bit. I avoid climbing on ladders (high distances), climbing roofs, and other dangerous stuff. My uncle was hanging Xmas lights and ended paralyzed for 3 months. He still is not right to this day. Not to mention the countless other stories you hear

I have done some in the past but not anymore, its just too dangerous. Anytime you are near a roof its trouble. I don't mind climbing a ladder when I have to but I try to avoid it if I can.

I do have a ten foot step ladder I use and thats with someone there to have a hand on it should I have to lean out some.

Nothing to do with gutters but talking safety I bought a Stihl Kombi KM 130 R with the adjustable hedge trimmer and an extra extension and a Stihl HT 131 Pole Pruner so I can keep two feet on the ground more often.
