Ultimate Roof Cleaning We only clean debris from 1-2 stories. It must be walkable so we can clean them all with leaf blowers. If not, we donít do it. But itís great to clean a 2 story in 30min and make $200.

momentum Hi kerry,
As a professional cleaner, I would say it depends on the gutters and the site of your home. Regular maintenance keeps your gutters functioning properly and can prevent water damage and keep your home looking nice. Cleaning your gutters at least twice a yearĖ once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early fall. Keep updating.

OptimalPrime Ive always just stuck with a pair of nitrile dipped gloves, a couple of 5 gallon pails, some rope to raise and lower them and a garden hose to flush. Also a rag in the back pocket to wipe down as needed. Keep it simple and avoid making a mess with a blower.

Randall1022 Do not step in the valley of a roof while cleaning gutters. It will cause a leak.

Thomas.Chapman Cleaning the gutters in your house is one of the most important things to do, if you want to prevent water damages to your property and thus saving money from repairs. House owners must clean the gutters at least twice a year.
They should always wear proper equipment such as gloves, a dust mask, safety goggles and use a ladder.

AshleyRogers Leaking Gutters: Clogged gutters are the number one cause of basement water problems. When gutters are clogged, roof water overflows and accumulates around the foundation. If this happens, basement leaks may be moments away.

Cracked Foundations: Clogged gutters can cause excess water against the foundation wall to weaken the footing and lead to foundation wall cracks. This is particularly true in the colder months when built-up water at the foundation freezes and causes a condition known as "frost-heave" which can cause severe cracks to foundation walls.

Gutter Cleaning Tips to Avoid Major RepairsRotten Wood: Water backing up from clogged gutters will cause moisture damage to the wood fascia around the house. The rotted area will quickly get worse if the leak is not eliminated by cleaning the gutters.

Leaking Roofs: In winter, ice dams can form on top of clogged gutters. Snow then builds up across the top of the clogged gutter and freezes. During the next thaw, water running off the roof is blocked by the frozen snow and backs up into the house. This can lead to major wall and ceiling damage.
