How Much Should Gutter Cleaning Cost?

gutter cleaning costsGutter cleaning should save you money! Blocked gutters can cause leaks and damage to the roof. Getting your gutters cleaned regularly is much cheaper than repairing your roof!

Costs vary and depend on your location, the process used, and the size, style and  height of your building.

A single story home with easy roof access will usually cost between $150 and $200. Double story homes usually cost between $175 and $250.

Additional charges may apply if your roof is difficult to access, your gutters are particularly badly blocked or you have a large home / business to clean.

At TrustedCleaner we recommend getting 3 quotes before deciding which company is the right choice for you.

What’s Included? The Gutter Cleaning Process

man cleaning a gutterEvery company will follow a slightly different process but usually they will:

  • Conduct a thorough inspection of your roof to look for any damage, loose tiles, damaged colorbond or large debris
  • Then leaves, soil and other debris will be removed from your gutters, valleys and down-pipes using a vacuum machine, extension poles or air blowers
  • Finally gutters and down-pipes will be flushed with water to thoroughly clean them and check for any blockages

There are a number of different methods used by gutter cleaning companies, and each has advantages and disadvantages. Using a high-powered gutter vacuum for example removes debris automatically through a tube directly in to waste disposal unit so you are not left with a mess to clean-up. However some companies claim they are able to achieve a better result using extension poles and specialist air-blowers.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

DIY gutter cleaningNo-one wants to think about gutter cleaning, and it’s a job that’s easy to put off. However neglecting your gutters can cause damage to your roof so it’s a good idea to check them regularly.

There are many benefits to keeping your gutters clean including extending their life span, reducing the risk of leaks, reducing the risk of fire and to deter pests.

Most homeowners should get their gutters cleaned at least twice a year. However if you have overhanging trees which drop leaves and seeds in to your gutters you’ll need to clean them more often.

DIY gutter cleaning can be dangerous so it is important to take adequate safety precautions, or employ the services of a professional.
