When Should You Have Your Gutters Cleaned This Fall?

Falling leaves in autumn would look prettier and more charming if they’re not also clogging up your gutters. But that’s just how things go, and you’ll need to have them cleared away to ensure that rainwater is drained properly from the system. There’s just one important question: should you have your gutters cleaned before or after all the leaves have fallen?

Have Them Cleaned After

It’s generally a better idea to wait until all the leaves fall before scheduling a professional gutter cleaning. This way, the project will only be a one-and-done deal. Since you won’t actually have to invest in multiple gutter cleanups throughout the season, you’ll be able to save more money. Just make sure you don’t wait too long. Experts recommend having your gutters cleaned after every leaf has dropped, but before the winter snow and cold starts.

Have Them Cleaned Before

If you also plan on having a gutter protection system installed this season, you might want to schedule a gutter cleanup before all the leaves fall. This allows you to benefit immediately from the gutter protection system, ensuring that leaves and other loose debris are filtered out of your gutters throughout fall. But keep in mind that not all gutter protection systems deliver the same excellent performance. If you want something truly effective and high-quality, choose Gutter Helmet® covers from Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota.

They come with a patented nose-forward design that allows only rainwater into your gutters. Everything else, such as leaves, pine needles and other loose debris, are shed to fall harmlessly to the ground.
