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.

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. 

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.

Gary and team did a great job installing my gutter guards and cleaning the gutters out. He came right when he said he would and gave advice for future maintenance based on what he saw while working on some less-conventional gutters on my deck. Would absolutely hire again.

I hired Juan to clean my gutters, install gutter guards, and to shore up my gutters in a few areas. Juan arrived right on time, took the time to talk things over with me and understand what I was needing, and worked straight through until the job was done. He even repaired an area where the garret wood was rotten for no extra charge. So helpful, I’ll hire him again next time I need help with my gutters!

Highly recommended. Slavik was on time and did a high quality job - way better than our previous gutter cleaners. He even installed some bird spike in a couple of trouble areas (this was an add on request at the last minute, and he did a great job for a fair price). We saved Slavik's card and will absolutely be calling North Peak again once our roof and gutters need cleaning.

Jose came out same day to clean my gutters. His price was good and he did a great job. He even worked through rain to get the job done. My front gutters weren't aligned and he helped fix that too. He's also a nice guy and was professional throughout. I would definitely hire him again.

Mr. Smith arrived on schedule and cleaned the two gutters by hand. They were filled. He also removed several branches from the roof, and then hauled away all debris. His work was thorough, and took less than two hours for a complete job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for this service. November 16, 2014

Jose did an amazing job, was professional, and friendly. He walked the job site and gave me an accurate assessment. He did a great job cleaning the roof, the gutters, chimneys and pressure washing the driveway and walks. He is conscientious and you can tell he is invested and proud of his work. Displayed great safety practices, and rescheduled to fit my plans. I will be glad to work with him again in the future.

First of all, Clayton was an exceptional young man. We had Clayton come to our home to clean the gutters. We tried other guys before but they did not want to tackle the height of our home, Clayton was confident and reassuring that he could get the job done. He was here a little before scheduled and efficiently got the job done in a couple of hours. The gutters sparkle! I expected to see the windows to be dirty when he was finished, but Clayton went to the next level of service and sprayed them off as he went along. We also noticed that there was no dirt or debris on the ground when he had finished. Amazing!! We have hired Clayton to return and pressure wash the exterior of our home in August. Maybe he will bring lunch this time!! : ) We will recommend Clayton to anyone we know who needs his expertise and look forward to seeing him take on the challenge of cleaning our siding!! Thank You again, Clayton

Ryan, the owner, responded immediately to my project and quoted me a very affordable price for gutter and downspout cleaning. He was punctual and worked quickly and thoroughly. It was a life-saver because of all of the heavy rain we’ve had. I was pleasantly surprised to learn he could also do power washing of my driveways and sidewalks as well as install leaf guards for a steal. He came by a couple days later and worked all day. Everything looks amazing!! It instantly took off years from my house and boosted curb appeal. Ryan cleaned up afterwards and even helped with a few extra things that needed to be done - all for a reasonable price. So happy I found him and would highly recommend!
