Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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.

Here are the best gutter cleaning services near you — contact several pros to start getting free estimates.

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.

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.

I recently had King Gutters to my home for a cleaning due to a messy maple tree that clogs them year after year. The King Gutters team were very friendly, flexible with their schedule, and they went above and beyond while they were cleaning my gutters. The same messy tree that is the culprit of the clogs was hanging over a part of the gutter way out of my reach to trim. Without me having to ask, they trimmed the area of the tree they could reach that was causing a big part of the problems. Amazing! I will be using them again, and will highly recommend them!

I requested a quote on Monday. By Monday afternoon I had an in-person quote and made arrangements to have my gutters cleared on Tuesday. Julio was courteous and professional. Answered all of my questions and made recommendations for future needs. I will have gutter guards installed at a phenomenally low price (in my opinion) and hopefully also utilize this business for power washing. I saw pictures of the gutters before and after cleaning. Thank you!

King gutters stated they would be here at a specific time and arrived not a min later. Would highly recommend this company, and will look to use them again for my next cleaning.

I would highly recommend King Gutters. Lenny made scheduling an appointment pleasant and easy, they were able to come out within days of calling (unlike other companies we spoke with), and did a great job cleaning the gutters and snaking the front storm drain. Very knowledgeable, with reasonable prices and even nicer people.

They did a phenomenal job servicing our gutters! We have a 3-story house with a front pergola which makes accessing the roof a little tricky. The King Gutter Cleaners replied to us very quickly and scheduled time to come out. They didn’t have a tall enough ladder to get to our roof the first time, but it didn’t scare them away from the job. We rescheduled and the second time they were able to get up to our roof and service the gutters (as well as taking care of a plant that was growing fast through under the shingles by the front gutters!). They even helped us secure a section of the gutter where it was coming loose. Very professional and courteous. Communication was excellent. Lenny (i hope that’s the correct spelling) kept us informed through messages and calls. Price was reasonable and they were upfront about any updates or changes. We are very happy customers and will definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

Having recently bought a house and discovering that the gutters may not have been ever cleaned, I reached out to PPM. They were super responsive and arrived on the planned time. The guys were super friendly and assured in their work. The price was very reasonable and I would absolutely use them again.

Fantastic, cleaned roof areas, cleared a clog in a underground conduit pipe from, cleaned everything up completely, held his quoted price even though I feel he earned way more. A very healthy tip was well earned imo. I will definitely use them again. Absolutely fantastic job. Need to pressure wash my siding, but my gutters are clear!

We are so pleased. Matt came out and took care of our gutter cleaning and also other debris inside the roof area left by squirrels. He did a phenomenal job, even took the trash with him when he left and used a dry vac ensure it was clean and dry in there. This is quality service that anyone can trust! Thank you so much Matt at Ports Property.

Great experience using J&M Gutters. Maria responded quickly to my inquiry, answered my questions and was able to work with me on scheduling the job for the same week. When it came time for the cleaning, the technician called to say he was on his way, was respectful of my property, and did a great job. I would use J&M again.

I was looking for a roofer to clean out my clogged gutters. It was short notice as I needed them the next day because of rain the following day. He was able to come the next day and fix the problem that same day for a reasonable price. Also I will be getting a follow up at no cost in the fall. He was professional and well mannered. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Shaun provided superb work on cleaning our gutter and downspouts. He was punctual and communicated and coordinated with me as to scheduling the job perfectly. As far as the job itself went, not only was he careful and thorough in his work, he kept us informed of what he was doing, and, much more important, why. He made suggestions that were sensible, and it was clear he was being judicious in his advice. He took pictures for our future reference, which wille quite valuable. Finally, he very graciously swept our leaves to the side, which we deeply appreciated. We will definitely use his services again, and highly recommend Port's Property Maintenance, LLC.
