Upon finding the right cleaning service, then the cost of having the gutters cleaned depend on multiple factors.
• Gutter condition: For homeowners that haven’t had their gutters cleaned out in a while, the overall cost to have them clean is likely to increase. If there is a lot of debris or leaves to remove, then the job takes longer to complete, something that ends up increasing the overall costs. Gutter cleaning costs in this case will reflect the extra time.
• House Height: Single-storied homes have the lowest costs when it comes to gutter cleaning. This means that the cost to have the gutters cleaned will increase with each story. For instance, if your home has two or more stories, then you can expect to be charged more to have the gutters cleaned out since this increases the risk and generally needs special equipment.

ARE YOUR GUTTERS READY FOR A CLEAN?
At Gutter Wiz, we know what a dirty, dangerous and unpleasant job gutter cleaning can be. We have cleaned 1000’s of gutters with our truck mounted vacuum. We know exactly how to do it properly. This will ensure your gutter cleaning is done to the best standard. We use the Gutter Wiz – Gutter Vacuum Cleaning method.
I would like to take this opportunity to explain the way we clean gutters and why.
Most businesses offering Gutter Vacuum Cleaning do just that, they vacuum the gutters. From my vast experience of cleaning thousands of gutters both domestic and commercial, I have concluded that just vacuuming gutters is not a thorough clean and I prefer to call it ‘gutter clearing’.
In an ideal scenario there would be loose dry leaves and no dirt. This is the only time we can get away with just vacuuming. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Usually there is dirt built up in the gutters. If it is dry, some of it sticks to the gutters, especially in the corners and under the roofline and the vacuum cannot get all of this out. Same if it is wet and sticky.
That is why we not only vacuum the gutters but rinse them also. This dissolves built up dirt & mud leaving the gutters much cleaner. This also slows the build-up so the gutters will stay cleaner for longer. Even though this process takes longer than just vacuuming, our pricing is still comparable to our competitors.
"Thanks for the great job you did for us today. To leave our property cleaned up as if you had never been is a bonus. We will gladly recommend your company to others who may need the services you offer."
