A gutter brush is another type of leaf protection system. It is a long circular guard that you keep in your gutters all year round in order to prevent clogging of leaves, twigs, and other debris. It can even prevent birds and rodents from building their nests in your gutters. Gutter brushes act as filtration systems and allow water to flow through your gutters. As such, they reduce the need for cleaning and maintenance. They also come in many different sizes so that they can fit your gutter properly.
