How much does it cost to have your gutters cleaned in San Francisco?

Hiring a pro to clean your gutters in San Francisco may cost anywhere between $99 and $250 to start. Ultimately, however, your home’s size and height will likely affect this price, as will the condition of your gutters.. A gutter cleaner may ask about the square footage of your home to gauge how much work there is to do. Additionally, taller homes may require more equipment and time, which could affect the price. And, lastly, the pro may charge more if they need to repair your damaged gutters.

Why is it important to clean your gutters?

Rain gutters, those easily-forgotten trenches that hang off the edge of your roof, protect your roof, walls and foundation from excess rainwater. When they get clogged with leaves, sticks and other wind-blown debris, they can no longer direct water away from your walls and foundation, and may become homes for pests and insects. They also become heavy enough to pull away from the house, preventing proper rainwater drainage and spoiling the appearance of your home. Experts recommend inspecting and cleaning your gutters twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, as part of your regular landscaping schedule. Gutter cleaning and maintenance is a fairly easy DIY job for some homeowners, especially on one-story homes. However, professional gutter cleaners have ladders tall enough to safely reach rain gutters, as well as the necessary tools to clean out the downspouts. Most gutter cleaning professionals can also make any necessary quick repairs.

How do I find and hire a professional gutter cleaning service?

To find and hire a reputable pro, start by comparing gutter cleaning services in your area online. This may include companies that solely offer gutter cleaning, as well as companies that provide roofing, pressure washing, lawn care or general cleaning services. Read their ratings and customer reviews, paying close attention to any reviews that include photos for evidence of their workmanship. 

Next, check to see if the pros you’re considering have the proper credentials (licenses, certifications, insurance, etc.) in your state. Your cleaner should be insured against all work-related injuries and damage. 

The final step is to compare quotes and estimates from the pros you’ve selected.

Is it worth it to hire a gutter cleaning service?

It’s almost always worth the money to hire a professional to clean your gutters, especially if you’re unable to clean your gutters yourself. 

Because your gutters see a lot of debris and abuse from Mother Nature, it’s essential to keep up with maintenance. Gutter cleaning is not terribly expensive, but it’s risky — working at the height of a gutter is dangerous. A professional gutter cleaner not only has experience, but also has insurance to cover any injuries. A pro also has the equipment and know-how to keep gutters in top shape and remove clogs from long downspouts. 

How often do you need to clean your gutters?

Gutter cleaning and maintenance is an important part of keeping up a home. Not only are clogged gutters unsightly, they can also lead to water damage in the house’s walls and roof. The best way to prevent that is to clean your gutters at least twice a year — experts recommend making it part of your spring cleaning and fall landscaping schedules. In the fall, trees lose their leaves and, in the spring, release seedpods and flower petals, all of which tend to end up in rain gutters. It’s a good idea to also have a professional gutter cleaner clear out your downspouts, too; clogged downspouts can make gutters backup and overflow.

How much does it cost to have gutters cleaned?

Professional gutter cleaning and maintenance should be done once or twice a year to remove debris and check for damage to the roof and gutter. The national average cost for rain gutter cleaners ranges from $100 to $130. A number of factors affect the costs, including the combined length of the gutters, the size of the house, the location of the gutters, and any risks posed to the professional cleaner. Some companies based their cost estimates on the linear square footage of the gutters; for example, 200 linear square feet of gutters on a standard, single-story ranch-style home costs an average of $125 to clean. The cost goes up for second- and third-story gutters and those in hard-to-reach places, like a roof with an unusually steep pitch. Expect to pay at least $100 more than standard prices if cleaning your home’s gutters requires extra safety precautions. Because spring and fall are gutter cleaners’ busiest seasons, some gutter cleaning and maintenance companies offer discounts during summer and winter months.

Who can I get to clean my gutters?

If you’re looking for someone to clean the gutters on your home, there are a number of different businesses that tend to do this work.  The first is a dedicated property maintenance company, which commonly cleans gutters as part of keeping properties running smoothly. Landscaping and design companies may also offer gutter cleaning services, as well as roofers, painters, remodelers, carpenters and handymen. Lawn care services will sometimes offer gutter cleaning as part of a lawn care or leaf removal package.

What does gutter cleaning include?

A professional gutter cleaning may include several services in one. And pros may utilize different gutter cleaning methods, depending on your situation.

Gutter cleaners typically set something down to catch the leaves and debris as they clean, whether it’s a bucket or a tarp set below. Then, they flush or dig out the leaves from the gutters, clean the downspouts out with a high-pressure hose, blower or pressure washer, inspect the gutters for damage and cracks, and fix any cracks using a gutter sealant.

Mendez did an excellent job cleaning out the gutters of the house. Not only did they thoroughly remove all debris, they also trimmed some low overhanging branches from trees near the roof so as to prevent more debris falling in to the gutters.

They specialized in cleaning windows and not gutters. I felt mislead by Thumbtack that they recommended them and showed it as a five star service. I never mentioned that I had windows that needed cleaning.

Along with Work Quality, Professionalism and Punctuality, I'd check Responsiveness and Value also, but only three categories are allowed. All thumbs up regarding cleaning the gutters and flushing the drains.

Jon did an excellent job cleaning our gutters (which had not been cleaned in 12 years!). He was on time, very fast, professional, pleasant and very easy to communicate with. His price was reasonable and fair. After he finished, he cleaned up the work area thoroughly. I'm very pleased that we hired Jon and would hire him again without hesitation.

Yvan did an excellent job cleaning my gutters. They had not been cleaned in years and the downspouts were blocked. He also snaked & flushed the downspouts and made sure everything worked. It was a lot more work than expected, but he stuck to the price he originally quoted me. Excellent job and would definitely hire him again.

Mendez arrived on time, was courteous, however did not bring professional tools to get the job done, using only blower, broom and ladder. I didn't have much debris so the job was complete in about 20 minute. It's my understanding gutters are cleaned and pressured with water to test drainage and clear downspout. Cash was requested at end of service, no receipt and no business card so she sent me a text. They were available before a heavy storm where I had water leak the night before so I took my chances.

After the rain earlier this week, we discovered we had a clog somewhere in the gutter system of our 3-story house that was causing a waterfall onto our front porch. I reached out to Teodor and he responded almost immediately with an estimate and appointment time for the very next day. Due to the current shelter in place order, I requested we avoid all in-person communication and Teodor was completely understanding and accommodating of that. I provided the necessary access before he arrived, and we handled all communication and business by phone and app. Teodor arrived right on time and alerted me that he was starting the job. He was able to clear the clog and then clean the gutters all around the perimeter of our house quickly and thoroughly. We also engaged him to wash some very dirty windows, some screened, on one level of the house and he did a top-notch job with that too. Teodor was a pleasure to work with and made the whole process super easy during a very weird time. Honestly, if you have the means right now, and the need, it's a great time to have this kind of work done. Besides supporting small business in our community, all the logistics can be coordinated contact-free and the work can be done outside while you are safely inside. Thanks, Teodor! We are absolutely adding you to our list of go-to maintenance folks for our property. See you next time!
