HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY GUTTERS? ...RR in Trussville, AL
As often as needed to keep them functioning properly.  Clogged gutters, left unattended will overflow and cause rotten wood/siding, foundation issues and water problems that promote mold.  Your schedule depends on how many trees you have and how close they are to your structure.  For some, an annual Late Fall Cleaning after all leaves are down is sufficient.  A second cleaning is often advisable in the late Spring due to pollen, blooms (pine trees, oak trees, pecan trees, etc.) and Spring rains.  Also keep in mind that evergreens drop needles year round.  Some of our clients with very heavy foliage have us to do multiple Fall cleanings.  We are glad to help you determine the best schedule for your home or business and calendar it appropriately, so you have one less thing to worry about.
