Fall is around the corner, which has us thinking about picking apples, carving pumpkins and, of course, raking leaves. We all know that a leaf blower can make leaf removal faster and easier. But did you know that leaf blowers can come in handy for other home maintenance tasks? The Family Handyman has the full breakdown, which we’ll summarize here.
Don’t own a leaf blower? Rent one from Broadway Rental! We carry a traditional blower and vacuum, as well as a backpack blower for large yards or big projects. And visit our blog post on leaf removal for more raking and leaf blowing tips.
Keep the Lawn Mower Clean
When grass clippings build up on the deck of a riding lawn mower, it can cause damage. Use your blower to remove clippings after every mow.
Clean the Garage Floor
Don’t spend time sweeping the garage floor! Simply blow leaves, grass, dirt and debris right out the door.
Clean and Dry the Car
Washing your car at home is a great way to save money. For a clean finish without water spots, use your leaf blower to dry the car. You can also blow dirt and debris out of truck beds or vehicle interiors.
Clean Out Gutters
Got clogged gutters? Place the end of your leaf blower into the bottom of the gutter and turn it on. The force of the air will loosen stubborn clogs.
Remove Storm Debris
With a leaf blower, there’s no need to pick up sticks or leaves left behind after a storm. We’ve heard of people using them to blow a light snow off the driveway and sidewalks!
Clean Outdoor Rugs
Instead of washing outdoor rugs, use the leaf blower to blow away dirt and dust.
