Now that you have decided to hire a professional gutter cleaning service and you know what kind of questions to ask and what to look for to make sure you choose the right one, how do you find the companies to ask for quotes? It may seem like a silly question, but if you have never had to hire a gutter cleaner, then you might not know where to look.
My first recommendation would be to ask friends, family, and neighbors about who they use. If other people you know use a particular service then they are pretty happy with the results. Plus, if they ran across a service that did a poor job or for some reason they did not like, they will be sure to tell you. Asking the question will get people talking about it. They might never tell you otherwise and you might hire a service that swindled someone you know before it is too late.
My second recommendation would be the Yellow Pages. Many gutter cleaning services are local businesses that do not have a large online presence. You are much more likely to find a gutter cleaning service in the phone book than in a web search. Look for companies that have larger ads because they are generally your more established companies.
Now, just because most gutter cleaning companies are local, that does not mean you cannot find them online. An online search for gutter cleaning and the name of your city or municipality should return multiple listings for local cleaning companies. Do not expect a lot of the companies to have fancy web pages or web pages at all. Do not be discouraged by this. Even though a professional gutter cleaning service might not have a web page that does not mean they are not legitimate.
