Cincinnati-Area Gutter Cleaning Services
Benefits of hiring professional gutter cleaners
Every fall and every spring, your gutters are typically due for a cleaning. Some people don’t want to go through the hassle of cleaning them out and just end up letting them fill up with junk throughout the year. Not everyone sees the importance in cleaning out their gutters. Gutter cleaning keeps your home safe from water leaks at the foundation, helps prevent ice dams in the winter, and keeps water flowing away from your home. No matter what the gutter looks like, it is prone to becoming clogged. Whether the problem is branches, trash, nests, or an endless supply of leaves, there are lots of different items that become stuck in your gutters. This will impact a gutter’s ability to do what it’s supposed to do and also creates an ugly mess. It’s critical to have free-flowing gutters to prevent potential damage to your home. These damages could include:
- Cracked Foundations
- Eroded Roofs
- Water Damage in Your Basement
- Flooding Your Yard and Possibly Your Neighbor’s yard
Why pay for a gutter cleaning?
Your home’s foundation doesn’t want your gutters overflowing.
Your neighbors don’t want your gutters gushing.
Your basement definitely doesn’t want water in it.
And you – after a long day of work – do not want to dodge sheets of dirty water flowing out of the gutters as you run to your door in the rain. That hop and weave thing doesn’t quite get you in the door unscathed, either.
So you put gutter cleaning on your to do list.
Well, it doesn’t exactly sit idle on the to do list. While you’re making your way through the day at work and at home, it sits in the back of your mind. You have to get the ladder out (or borrow one), get gloves, garbage bags, and make sure you have enough hose to run from the side of the house up the ladder. You have to make the time to do it. You know that if you block off just a couple of hours, something will come up.
That couple hour project easily turns into a day’s project in no time.
Maybe you should just get gutter cleaning off your to-do list and give it to someone else who is trained to do it professionally. Luckily, Blue Skies’ professional gutter cleaners are bonded, insured, background-checked, well-trained and keep your time in mind. We are fast, efficient and in/out without any more notice than necessary.

Gutter cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t I just clean my gutters on my own?
Obviously if you are an able-bodied individual, you can clean out your own gutters. Be sure to wear eye protection and quality gloves for your own safety. When clearing out the leaves and debris, make sure to properly contain all the debris in garbage bags for disposal or composting.
Leaving leaves all over the ground can attract insects and present new issues that you may not have had before. Pay attention to mold or clogs in the downspouts. Mold can be cleaned up with a chemical solution, and clogs need to be addressed with a pressure washer to break up the blockages. Finally, the main thing to be aware of is your own safety. Cleaning gutters is not the safest job; you spend a lot of time balancing yourself on a ladder or sitting on the edges of rooftops. This is one of the biggest reasons why we recommend getting your gutters professionally cleaned. Our professionally trained gutter cleaners are comfortable working in these precarious situations so that you don’t have to.
When can I get my gutters cleaned?
Blue Skies offers gutter cleaning services anytime; whether rain or shine, we can clean your gutters out. Even if it’s 32 degrees out in the middle of winter, we are still able to clear them out. Don’t wait too long to get your gutters cleaned, however, because letting ice form in your gutters can lead to a whole multitude of new problems. Getting your gutters cleaned in the winter will cost extra, as we have to boil the water before running it through the gutters.
How often should you clean your gutters?
It’s recommended that you clean out your gutters twice a year, each fall and spring, but that timeline may vary depending on where you live. If your house is underneath pine trees or other trees that are prone to shed a lot throughout the year, it may be better to get your gutters cleaned out every 3 months or so to remove the excess shedding from the trees. If you live at a higher altitude than normal, your biggest concern will be freezing gutters. Your gutters may require some extra attention for this reason as they are more susceptible to ice forming inside them and clogging up your gutters. There are several factors that go into gutter cleaning frequency, but the general rule of thumb is to stay on top of your gutter cleaning rather than waiting too long; it could mean the difference between a happy, smooth running home and a crippling foundation.
Gutter cleaning isn’t a glamorous job. What’s thought of as a quick, couple hour job can very easily turn into a full day project. With all the hassle that comes with gutter cleaning, it may just be smarter for you to let someone else take care of the problem for you. If you want to save yourself from bigger house issues in the future, invest in clean gutters now before it’s too late.
