Seven Tips to Hiring a Gutter Cleaner and Protect Your House

While gutter cleaning can be an easy job on the first story, it has its challenges especially for a second and third story.  

What you don’t see in the gutter (all the leaves, sticks and mud) could be damaging to your house with improper flow of rainwater. 

Even rodents can make a little home within a clogged gutter.  I’ve seen little forming trees grow out of a gutter that was completely cleaned the previous year.  And the gutters even had gutter guards!!  Gutters without good flow of water can damage the roof, walls, foundation and landscape.  This can also lead to sagging gutters, mold, basement leaking and damage to floors and carpets! Let’s avoid this damage and extra costs! Get them cleaned today.

Seven Tips to Hiring a Gutter Cleaner

But before you hire someone to clean your gutters this spring, here are seven tips to guide you in making your choice.

  1. Does the company have General Liability for this work?  They should be willing to show proof of this insurance.
  2. Be sure that the company will protect your gutters if needing to rest a ladder against them.
  3. Will they show pictures of the clean gutters?  Be sure to ask them to provide photos of the clean gutters, as desired.
  4. Are both the gutters and downspouts clear?  Be sure that they can prove that the downspout is clear, and that water will run smoothly from off the roof and on to the ground through the downspout.  Any rain guarantee?
  5. What are your expectations for the cleaning?  Be sure to ask about the process of the cleaning.
  6. If there is leaking from a gutter joint, it may be best to wait for the gutter cleaning when it is dry.  That way, the gutter cleaning tech can apply the right sealant to the cracks.
  7. Will your gutter cleaning tech keep you on a schedule to maintain your gutters?  Gutters typically need to be cleaned 2-3 times a year.
