What does gutter cleaning consist of and how often should I do it?


Gutter cleaning consists of cleaning all debris from gutters and downspouts, and off all accessible roof areas and cleaning up all gutter related debris off the ground. In additon, the worker will identify problem areas and suggest corrective action as a part of our service.

Gutter cleaning is a form of preventive maintenance that can actually prolong the life of your home. For that reason, gutters should be cleaned as often as needed. Generally, most of our customers' have their gutters cleaned two or more times a year depending on the surroundings of their homes (i.e. trees with blossoms, pollen strings, leaves, pine needles, seeds, acorns, sticks and other debris).

The following are the recommended times to clean your gutters. Please keep in mind you might need even more frequent service, and that each year the weather patterns are a little different and for that reason there is a range in time for each cleaning.



In early summer, between late May and end of June to rid your gutters of an accumulation of winter debris. In addition, some of the tender tree foliage is blown off the trees along with blossoms and pollen strings, which because of their consistency will clog your gutters causing them to hold water, providing a perfect breeding ground for mosquito larva.

In mid to late summer,in August through September because despite the fact that most leaves are firmly attached to the trees, some still come down and end up in the gutters. Thunderstorms, strong winds and drought, all are strong contributors to large accumulations of leaves, sticks and debris in the gutters in late summer.

In early fall, in late October through the end of November, leaves quickly accumulate in your gutters and the sheer volume of leaves requires the gutters to be cleaned.

In late fall, cleaning time depends on where you live and is between late November and the end of January, when most leaves are off the trees. This gutter cleaning is a balancing act of waiting for most leaves to be off the trees and not waiting too long so that all gutters freeze solid with ice and leaves in them.

 

The installation of gutter strainers will help your gutters by reducing downspout blocking and help keep leaves and sticks from going into the downspouts. Strainers are especially important when your gutters are connected to underground drains where leaves and debris can accumulate and create a serious blockage that may require expensive equipment to unclog. The Spring Gutter Strainers come in two sizes, small for 5-inch gutters ($7 each) and large for 6-inch gutters ($8 each)and are made from galvanized wire. These are also available in stainless steel wire ($15 each for both sizes). Stainless steel is suitable for copper and aluminum gutters and will last forever.
