One of the advantages of hiring someone to clean your gutters versus doing the job yourself is that often the professionals can clean other areas of your home or do other home maintenance tasks at the same time. It is possible to get a majority of your spring cleaning projects done by one company if you plan accordingly.
Many gutter cleaning companies are power washing companies. That means that they offer power washing services for a wide variety of surfaces. They can clean vinyl siding, aluminum siding, concrete patios, brick, stucco, slate, flagstone, decks, boats, basketball and tennis courts, and roofs. You can get almost the entire exterior of your home cleaned at once if that is what you are looking for. In addition, power washing companies might also clean the paint off of your house in preparation of a new paint job or restore old brick to its old glory. You can also get swing sets, basement or concrete floors, or tombstones, cleaned if that is what you need.
Another type of company that might offer a gutter cleaning service is a window washer. Window washing is a seasonal job sometimes. People rarely worry about cleaning their windows too much in the late fall or during the winter when there is less sunshine. As a result, many window washing companies offer gutter cleaning services to pick up the slack during those slow times. These professionals are used to working on ladders and usually do a good job.
Finally, you might be able to find a landscaping company that does gutter cleaning. Landscapers offer services like lawn cutting, fertilization, mulching, weeding, planting, tree pruning, etc. Any kind of outdoor yard work can be accomplished by a landscaping company. You can hire their services on a weekly basis or a once a year basis. If the landscapers come twice a year to spruce up your yard, then it is easy to add a gutter inspection or cleaning to their to do list when they are there.
