NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gardus Inc. today announced the availability of its latest product, the VertaLok™ Rotary Gutter Cleaning System. This innovative tool provides an effective solution to an age-old maintenance problem for homeowners – all done without stepping foot on a ladder.
According to the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries in the U.S. related to ladders each year, and that number is escalating according to a recent study published in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine. "I really know firsthand about ladder injuries," said George Kulp, Vice President of Gardus. "While doing some routine maintenance around my home last summer, I fell off a ladder and broke my shoulder blade. We think about the safety of our customers and pride ourselves in the quality and design of our products," said Kulp. "Homeowners no longer need to cringe with the thought of cleaning their gutters. The VertaLok System is easy to use and it really works."
This unique system includes everything you need to quickly inspect, clean and maintain your gutters from ground level, reducing both the risk of injury from ladder falls and the potential for costly damage to your home resulting from neglected gutter maintenance. The product utilizes ultra-light, extendable pole sections with an internal rotary drive and water channel. The poles connect to your cordless drill and garden hose for a speedy and complete removal and rinse process. The combination of rotary power and non-rotary tools with built-in water jet nozzles makes the toughest gutter cleaning jobs a breeze, while helping to prevent problems from clogged gutters that may include roof leaks, mold growth, insects, iced walkways in winter, and damage to your home interior, foundation, wood fascia, siding, basement and landscaping.
The aluminum drive poles in the system reach up to 12 feet and are extremely strong yet weigh only 12.8 ounces each. The product also includes a mounting bracket for your digital camera which enables photo or video inspection from ground level before or after cleaning; and a Flow-Thru Threaded Adapter that can be used with a variety of common cleaning brushes, painting tools and window washing attachments to perform many additional jobs around the home. A 6-Foot Extension Pole Kit is sold separately for higher reach. Several multi-use accessories are planned to expand the VertaLok System, including a dustless wall sander, ergonomic painting kit, washing/buffing kit (for home/auto/RV/boat) and a reciprocating saw attachment for tree trimming. The VertaLok Rotary Gutter Cleaning System is available now at Amazon.com and independent retailers nationwide for about $119.95.
