Living in an area with mature trees means gutters need cleaning on a regular basis. Your gutters fill up with leaves, pine needles, acorns, twigs and other debris. When and how often your gutters need cleaning will depend on the quantity and type of trees in your area. Even if there are no trees directly overhead, it would surprise you to see what the wind carries. Most trees shed their leaves in the fall, but some pine trees have heat activated pine cones that burst open on a hot summer day. For these areas, we recommend gutter cleaning twice a year, once in the spring/summer and again in the fall.
If you live in a house with an asphalt roof, a lot of asphalt ends up in your gutters. This is inevitable for asphalt roofs. Also, new neighborhoods or homes near a busy roadway will have debris made up of dirt and construction debris. Without mature trees, we recommend gutter cleaning every 1 to 2 years.
Shingles will chip and break away over time and end up in your gutters. These loose shingles attract wasps looking to build their nest. In addition, moss buildup on the shingles add to the debris, particularly during the wet season. Without mature trees, we recommend gutter cleaning every 2 years, or whenever you notice an issue.
There are lots of items on the market, which usually consist of a mesh design that fit over your gutters and guard them against large debris. The are many false claims that gutter guards will make gutter cleaning a chore of the past. Through experience, we have encounter many homes where the debris either rests on top of the mesh or bypasses through its holes (even very small holes). This means your gutters still need cleaning on a regular basis. To remove and replace the mesh each time will make gutter cleaning that much more expensive. We don’t install these products because we don’t believe in them.
Have used Student Suds for about 5 years. They are a very professional company. Their staff are courteous and friendly. Highly recommend them for window washing. They are prompt and work quickly
We recently had all our windows cleaned on our 2800sq ft home and the exterior of the house pressure washed. Everything was great. I wasn't home during the service but when I got home everything met my expectations and my property was left clean. I would definitely use Student Suds again and recommend them to my friends.
A pleasant experience. The crew arrived early, was very courteous, and did the work very efficiently.
