Gutter cleaning is an important part of maintaining your home because gutters help to keep away the damaging effects of water.
When gutters aren’t cleaned regularly the result could be damage to the roof, siding, foundation and even the landscaping surrounding the home.
Houses in Connecticut typically need to have gutters cleaned twice each year, in the spring and fall.
I (Erik) service homes and businesses in the Farmington Valley towns of Avon, Canton, Farmington, Granby and Simsbury as well as many Hartford County and Litchfield County towns.
Cleaning gutters is a home maintenance chore that most homeowners would rather not tackle. Not only can gutter cleaning be a disgusting job but it can also be dangerous being up on a ladder or roof.
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were more than 630,000 Americans who needed medical treatment in 2015 for injuries related to ladders. Hire a professional gutter cleaner and save yourself a trip to the hospital which will cost a lot more than getting your gutters cleaned by Erik.

How Often Should Gutters Be Cleaned?
In Connecticut, homes generally require gutter cleaning twice each year. However, frequency of gutter cleaning has a lot to do with where you live and how many trees are in the vicinity. I recommend that gutters get cleaned at least in the spring and fall
Why Clean Gutters?
- Clogged gutters can cause interior and exterior water damage as well as roof leaks.
- Debris in gutters will impede the flow of water to the downspouts which can also get clogged.
- Leaves and pine needles make great homes for bugs, rodents and other small animals.
- Gutters filled with water can pull gutter spikes from the building causing costly repairs.
How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?
The cost for cleaning gutters varies depending on the number and length of gutters to be cleaned, the height of the building, how much debris there is, and even the pitch of the roof. If the roof is too steep to work from then ladders need to be moved repeatedly and that takes more time. Cleaning the gutters on an average size home will typically cost $75 to $250.
