Gutter Cleaning

Gutter cleaning is essential for all homes. Clogged gutters can cause water damage, freezing issues, pest infiltration, and damage to sidings and roofs. Debris and water can become heavy and cause gutters and surrounding areas to sag and break. This type of damage can cost thousands of dollars and lead to an array of other problems. It is absolutely critical to work with a professional to keep your gutters in good condition as gutter cleaning can be dangerous, and it is extremely important that it’s done right. Nick Rivers offers comprehensive gutter cleaning services throughout Anne Arundel and Howard Counties.

When to Have Your Gutters Cleaned

Gutters must be cleaned at least twice a year. This is vital to preventing serious damage to your home. We recommend having your gutters professionally cleaned once per season due to changing weather conditions that affect gutter debris. Skipping your gutter cleaning is an unnecessary risk that can have disastrous consequences, so reach out to us if you’d prefer to schedule your gutter cleanings in advance.

Recommended Gutter Cleaning Schedule

  • March: Winter leaves gutters clogged with ice, slush, standing water, and heavy debris that must be cleared away before incoming spring showers. Having your gutters cleaned in March is a great way to do some spring cleaning for your home that will prevent any gutter-related damage with approaching rainfall.
  • June: Throughout spring, trees drop seed pods, pollen, ragweed, and other foliage that clogs gutters and must be removed. Have your gutters cleaned in June to wash away debris that can pile up and cause damage down the road.
  • August: Summer rainstorms often cause heavy debris to fall from trees, which can warp gutters over time and cause damage. This must be cleared out to make way for impending fall leaves.
  • Fall: This is the most critical time for gutter maintenance. Trees shed their leaves steadily throughout the season in addition to an uptick in rainy and snowy days. 2-3 cleanings are recommended throughout the season for optimal gutter conditions.
