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.

I had Tremain come clean my gutters. I have the K-Guard brand gutters, so it wasn't an easy job. Tremain was on time, friendly, and efficient.

Luke did an awesome job of cleaning my gutters. They had been a little neglected and were overdue for a good clean out. He took the time needed to thoroughly clean them and did not rush through the job. That's #1 in my book. He was very personable and professional. I will definitely hire him again and suggest giving Luke at Rhodes Outdoor Care a call if you are looking for someone to clean your gutters. S. Williams

I contacted Michael today about having my gutters cleaned. He responded immediately and said he could come by today to give me a quote. We agreed on the price ( very reasonable) and best of all, he did it right then! I had gutters in 5 places on my house, and the temperature was close to 100 degrees. But Michael got the job done in no time, and cleaned up too. He’s a hard working young man. I highly recommend him.

I had multiple bids on the gutter/window project I needed done. Jack was not only on top of getting me a response to my request, he went above and beyond to get me scheduled in within 2 days! He followed up with messages and a call to get me scheduled ASAP. The guys are super nice and did a great job. They even took before and after pictures (I would have never thought of that) of my gutters to show me the difference (I sure as heck wasn't getting up on a ladder to look). Gutters were cleaned and some hooks were reattached/replaced. I asked them to do the windows (outside only) and they looked great. I shouldn't need my gutters cleaned anytime soon...but when I do, I'm calling Jack.

Luke did an exceptional job cleaning my gutters. It was definitely a big job, and time consuming. He worked hard, cleaned up so well, and really is just a great person! I’m amazed at how clean they were after, I have had them cleaned before, but no one took the time to thoroughly clean like this. I will definitely make a point to call him in the fall! Thank you Luke!

Luke is a great guy, and worked really hard while he was here for my gutters and exterior cleaning on top of the very reasonable price he quoted me for. He even cleaned my patio and furnitures while he was at it free of charge because they were dirty. I can tell from his work ethic that he is going to go far as a business owner from this kind of professionalism and integrity. He is exceptional in the world of this kind of business. Would definitely hire again. Best of luck to you and your future business Luke!
