You might think that cleaning gutters is an additional household expense. But if you have a two-story house or if your residence lies on a slope, hiring someone to do it for you will be a safer choice. It will also save you money, time, and energy in the long run.

Keeping your gutters clean can prevent structural damage to your home's walls and foundation, as it helps protect your residence from water damage or leaks. In general, cleaning gutters costs $100 to $600 based on several factors.

Signs that your gutters need to be cleaned

  1. Damp walls. Wet spots and brown stains are caused by water leaks and are a sign of an impending structural problem.

  2. Sagging gutters. Your gutters might have been carrying the weight of accumulated debris, preventing rainwater from passing through the downpipes.

When was the last time you cleaned your gutters? If you haven’t for a year or two, it’s time to call a professional cleaner.

Factors affecting the cost of gutter cleaning

Gutter length and home size

Length will primarily affect how much it costs to clean gutters. An average 130-square-metre, one-storey home has around 45 to 60 linear metres. To know the cost of cleaning the gutters of a 2-storey house, multiply that by the number of storeys and consider the extra downspouts. The larger the home, the more expensive the gutter cleaning job.

Roof accessibility

Is your roof easy to access? This also affects how much gutter cleaning costs. Is your home against a slope or too close to other houses? Then you might need to factor that in your estimate.

Moreover, since the job involves climbing heights, cleaners need ladders, bucket trucks, or scaffolding. Extra equipment increases the final price of their service.

Roofing type 

How simple or complex is your roof? Does it have dormers or gables? What are the height and pitch? The complexity of your roof will also be a factor in computing the total price of gutter cleaning services.

Amount of debris

Do your gutters have bird nests or clumps of fallen leaves? More debris means the job will take longer. With that in mind, booking a gutter cleaning service regularly will help you save money in the long run because the professional you hire won’t have to exert much effort during each visit.

FAQs about gutter cleaning

When kept clean, gutters and downpipes channel water and rain away from your home. When blocked, you’re running the risk of damaging your roof and home foundation. Clogged gutters and downpipes cause mould buildup and structural damage.

It’s the safest choice because professionals already have: (1) the experience, (2) equipment, and (3) skills to work on damaged gutters, downpipes, and roof tiles. DIY gutter cleaning is possible, but it might cause more harm than good if you’re doing it for the first time and only relying on video tutorials.

Is your home surrounded by trees? Their leaves can fall on your roof and can clog your gutters. Thus, have your gutters cleaned at least twice a year. On the other hand, if you live in the city and leaves don’t necessarily fill your gutters, consider cleaning them at least once a year to free them from debris.
