How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?


How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?

Of all the outside chores you can accomplish, it is understandable if you would rather put off cleaning your gutters. Climbing a ladder can feel stressful, especially if you also have to walk along to roof to get everything. Moreover, it is a pain to dodge all that old rainwater and the leafy muck that comes with it. Just how often does a person need to clean their gutters anyway?

Ideally, you want to clean your gutters twice a year when the seasons change. However, depending on your tree coverage, you may need to clean them more often. Why deal with it yourself, though, when you can hire a professional to take care of it for you?

At First Coast Home Pros, we have years of experience rolling up our sleeves and getting even the dirtiest of jobs done. We also perform gutter guard installations, which can reduce the amount of time you (or we) spend cleaning your gutters the next time around. If either of these professional services sounds like a good idea, give our team at First Coast Home Pros a call at (904) 383-7721, or send us an email at for more information.

How Often You Should Clean Your Gutters

Most experts recommend that you clean your gutters twice a year: once in the fall, and again in the spring. But what if you have more trees than your neighbors do? And what if you live in the kind of climate where it rains or snows more often? In certain situations, you may need to clean your gutters more often than folks in other parts of the world.

It may be a good idea for you to sign up for routine gutter maintenance. That way, we will put you on a schedule, and you never have to worry about being overdue for a gutter cleaning again.

Why is it a bad idea to fall behind on cleaning your gutters? Well, if your gutters freeze over or become clogged with leaves and debris, they cannot flush out rainwater as effectively. And when stormwater has nowhere else to go, it backs up into your roof, creating water damage. Rather than deal with the headaches that entails, it is a better idea to simply clean your gutters more often.

How First Coast Home Pros Does It

Our professionals at First Coast Home Pros have years of experience in efficiently and safely cleaning exterior fixtures, including gutters. We know what tools to use to effectively remove those filthy clumps of buildup from your gutters and downspouts without causing damage or mess to your property.

Once we think we have successfully removed all the debris, we double-check ourselves by running a simple test on your gutters. We force air through your gutters and downspouts to ensure good airflow. If we notice the flow slows or stops, we will do whatever it takes to remove the obstacle — even if it means temporarily dismantling your downspout.

The last thing we want to do is give you that feeling of confidence that comes with a job well done, only to discover we did not do so well after all. While we double-check ourselves on every service we perform, we also offer you a 100% one-week satisfaction guarantee just in case we miss something that you do not. If for any reason you are unsatisfied, give us a call and we will make it right.

Why First Coast Home Pros Should Be Your First Phone Call

When you call First Coast Home Pros, you do not get the same run-of-the-mill price quote that any other company would give you for a gutter cleaning. We take the time to understand your situation to better determine whether a routine maintenance program or a gutter protection system is more appropriate for your home.

If you decide to go the routine maintenance route, we will help you schedule your gutter cleanings based on your individual needs. That way, you never have to worry about calling us to schedule your next service appointment. You will realize your home has never looked better when we take care of it!

If you decide to go with our gutter protection system, we install Leaf Relief® Gutter Protection, which comes with a 10-year Never Clogs, Never Overflows warranty. As part of this service, we also use a low-pressure debris removal technique to clean the exterior of your home. This helps to reduce and remove the algae that can and will otherwise eat away at your roof.
