Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My gutters were a mess. I placed a request for someone to do the work and in no time I received a message from OG Gutters. I then received a phone call to discuss what I needed and in a matter of just a few days, I had perfectly clean gutters. I also received pictures since I wasn’t home when the work was being done. The process of contacting and hiring this company was the easiest thing I’ve done in months. Hiring OG Gutters was also one of my best decisions for work to be done on the outside of my home.

When setting up the quote and appointment for having my gutters cleaned, Ron was very responsive and was able to quote the Job based on photos which is definitely a plus. We scheduled an appointment for the next morning, however around the time of the appointment I was contacted and told that he was running late but would still be here. Hours went by and I hadn't heard any updates so I tried contacting Ron multiple times through phone calls as well as text messages. Finally, after 4pm I heard from Ron that there was some personal issues that prevented him from showing up. We re-scheduled for the next day at 5pm. Ron showed up around 6pm the next day and was very professional. He did clean my gutters, and he cleaned my gutters well. However to my dismay, the way they clean gutters is by going on the roof with a blower and blowing all the leaves and debris out of the gutters. This surely works and it indeed gets the job done, however I was definitely expecting the job to be done with a large shop vac and gutter cleaning attachment. That way the debris would be sucked into a bin instead of being blown around my yard which I had started raking and trying to clean from the previous week. I suppose this is my fault for not asking how they cleaned gutters. He did blow all the leaves that landed on the driveway and porch into the yard and did make it tidy. But I definitely would have preferred a different method. All in all this company did the job I asked for and at a competitive rate. However I would have paid more for someone else had I known the methods that were being used.

Josh came out to give an estimate for gutter cleaning the same day I called him, but ended up doing the job immediately too! Will definitely hire him again.

After having my gutters cleaned by this company I sadly found out that when they were pressure washing the debris from the gutter, they pressure washed part of my house. This wouldn't have been a problem if they did not chip the paint of my beams and break my wooden wreath sign in half. I wouldn't recommend this company due to these things.

I had a great experience with Pro Exterior Cleaners. The response time was very quick and they even reached out over the weekend to schedule my gutter cleaning for the earliest possible date. The cleaning was was fast and I was also given a quote on the spot for future pressure washing. I'll definitely use Pro Exterior Cleaners going forward.
