Finding the Best Gutter Cleaner

Gutters filled with leaves.
If your gutters need cleaning, what is the best way to get the job done?

If you’ve had it with struggling to balance a ladder on your lawn, you may consider talking to a gutter cleaner. Gutter cleaning companies have the knowledge of how to clean gutters without damaging them. They can do this safely and with the right equipment so that you don’t need to worry about balancing on that dangerous ladder. If you need gutter cleaning, what should you look for in a gutter cleaning company?

Cost of the Service

When you’re looking at gutter cleaning companies, consider the annual cost of cleaning, not just the cost per service. Your gutters may need to be cleaned multiple times every year, depending on the amount of debris that regularly falls in your yard. Don’t forget to ask about extra fees and taxes as well.

According to Angie’s List, “homeowners should expect to pay a minimum charge of about $125 to $175 when hiring a professional to come clean gutters.” However, this could increase depending on the slant of the roof and the number of times the company needs to reposition the ladder.

Experience and Reputation

As you consider a gutter cleaning company, make sure that the company actually knows how to clean gutters. When you hire the person next door who’s starting a new moonlighting gig focused on gutter cleaning, you may not receive the best possible service.

Look into both the years of experience and the reputation of the company. You want to make sure that you hire a company that won’t cause damage, will clean up afterward, and will tell you about any problems that they notice with your gutters so that you can arrange for repair or replacement.  

What kind of tools does your gutter company use? It’s frustrating to work with someone and then turn around and realize that they have caused damage to your home. If a gutter company damages your gutters while working, does the company have the ability to compensate you for their error?

Gutter Covers: An Alternative to Gutter Cleaners

If you don’t want to arrange for gutter cleaning but you don’t want to clean your gutters yourself, you’re in luck. There’s a structural alternative that means that you never need to clean your gutters again. Adding a gutter cover to your gutters means that you can quit cleaning those gutters, as long as you choose the right one. While foam and mesh covers often need to be cleaned themselves, a gutter cover that directs debris to the ground and water over a textured, nose-forward design is one that will keep your gutters clean for years to come. Talk with us at Harry Helmet to learn more about our Gutter Helmet design and how it can keep your gutters debris-free.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
