According to data from nachi.org, "each year there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths in the U.S. that are caused by falls from ladders. Most ladder deaths are from falls of 10 feet or less. Falls from ladders are the leading cause of deaths on construction sites."

Everyone thinks that they will never be part of the statistic, but if you aren't careful, cleaning out your own rain gutters can be a hazardous and sometimes life-ending choice. An emergency trip to the hospital plus the cost of possibly not being able to work is much more costly and time consuming than hiring a professional service.
