Nampa Gutter Cleaners’ 3 Tips for Keeping Your Gutters Clean During the Holidays

Posted on Dec 30 2022

Hey there! Gregg from Clearview Gutters here. One of the most important parts of home maintenance is keeping your gutters clean and in good working order, which can be especially challenging during the holiday season. Leaves, pine needles and other debris can accumulate during the fall, making holiday rain and snow a potential cause of problems. Below are three tips for keeping your gutters clean and functioning properly during the holidays. 

1. Clean Gutters Regularly – One of the most important tips for keeping your gutters clean during the holidays is to make sure you clean them regularly. It is best to do this on a regular schedule, such as one to two times a year before or immediately after the holiday season. Cleaning your gutters removes debris from the gutters and also unclogs any parts that could be clogged. This is especially important during the holidays when leaves, branches, and other debris will be flying around your home. If you don’t clean your gutters regularly, these materials can accumulate quickly and create a blockage that can lead to costly repairs. Use a safe ladder and a pair of work gloves when cleaning your gutters and keep your eyes open for signs of damage such as leaky seams, cracks, or holes. Even if you don’t have specially designed gutter guards, scheduling regular gutter cleaning can help prevent build-up. Aim for once a month during the fall and winter for optimal performance. Make sure the cleanings are done early enough to prevent rain and snow from snagging on any debris.

2. Install Gutter Guards – Installing gutter guards can be a great way to keep your gutters clean during the holidays. Not only do they prevent debris from gathering in your gutters, but they also make it much easier to clean them out. Gutter guards come in a variety of materials and styles and can easily be installed in any gutter size. Metal, plastic, and mesh options are available to keep leaves and other materials from clogging your gutters. Once installed, all you will have to do is perform occasional gutter cleaning to remove any debris that may accumulate on the guards. Investing in debris guards can make all the difference in gutter maintenance. These guards have slots that allow water to run in but block debris from getting in, which can help prevent water from accumulating and freeze-thaw cycles from encasing debris. Make sure the guards are installed correctly, and check them for debris build up at the start of the holiday season.

3. Trim Trees and Bushes – Another tip for keeping your gutters clean during the holidays is to keep your trees and bushes trimmed. This is especially important if you live in an area with a lot of trees and bushes. Trimming these plants helps to reduce the amount of debris that can land in your gutters, which results in fewer clogs and less time spent cleaning them. If a particular tree or bush seems to be particularly problematic, consider cutting it down to reduce the debris that it produces. Make sure that you use proper safety gear and techniques when trimming any trees or bushes. Investigate any potential damage to the gutters ahead of the holiday season. Addresses any damage, such as holes and corrosion, and use a sealant to prevent water from entering and pooling. Take the additional step of using a water-resistant sealant in areas exposed to rain and snow to give your gutters the extra protection they need during the holiday season. 

When it comes to keeping your gutters clean and in good working order during the holiday season, a lot of the responsibility falls on the homeowner. Preparation is key, and following these three tips can help you keep your gutters in tip-top shape during the holiday season. Regular cleaning, installing debris guards and repairing any damage make all the difference in preventing water back ups and frozen debris. For more reliable results, not to mention peace of mind, consider enlisting the services of a professional gutter cleaning service to help keep your gutters free of debris and functioning properly during the holiday season.

Gutter Service FAQs

How often should I get my gutters cleaned?

We recommend cleaning your gutters twice per year… once in late autumn (after the bulk of the leaves have fallen) and again in late spring. Clear any debris from the roof valleys and gutter basins… and be sure to check the outlets that drain into the downspout pipes. This is the most common area for clogs to occur.

What is causing my gutter to start holding water?

The number one cause of standing water in the gutter basin is a clogged downspout. Regular cleanings can prevent this issue. Secondarily, homes can settle over time. Even if your installation was done correctly twenty years ago, and now they’re holding water and leaking, it could be because of the foundation settling and causing your gutters to not perform properly. We can fix slope problems.

Do you offer free estimate?

Yes, we offer dates and time windows of arrival to service any appointment of installation, repair, or cleaning. You can go to our “BOOK ONLINE” page to request a free estimate or call our office at 425-330-2300. We look forward to earning your business!

Does Clearview Gutters offer recurring maintenance?

In the Northwest you’re going to have a lot of home maintenance. We live in a damp environment that rains an average of 38 inches pear year. That’s a lot of water! We want to keep that water away from your foundation and crawl space. We have easily maintained recurring maintenance programs that can consist of roof blow offs, gutter cleaning and moss control to protect your roof and gutters. Proper maintenance can pay off and save you money.

When is it time to replace my gutters?

If your gutters are rusting out, leaking, or corroding they should have an estimator stop by to properly assess the problem areas and find if the gutters are able to be repaired or if you’ll need a partial replacement or a full replacement.

Is Clearview Gutters licensed, bonded and insured?

We are current with all legal obligations to perform work inside Idaho state.

I've used Clearview on two homes now and in each case the quality of the work was exceptional and they were extremely reliable. If you want your gutters done right the first time at a competitive price give them a call and let them do the work. I would recommend them to anyone.

Clearview Gutters are great to deal with! Fast response! Quality workmanship and very professional employer and employees! We have had numerous replacements done by Clearview Gutters due to the fact that some truck drivers don't look up when backing in to the bays. We appreciate this company and would highly recommend to anyone looking for quality work!

They cleaned up another company's mess. We had another company install gutters and they did such a poor job. When we complained they came and ripped everything down. Clearview Gutters worked with us on repairing the mess and installing new gutters. We were extremely pleased especially after the experience with the other company.

Prompt. Professional. Good job overall. I had gotten another estimate that was twice as high and told I needed to fix my gutters. Clearview gutters determined my gutters only needed to be cleaned - saving me $300.00. And with the recent rains, they seem to be just fine so I am very happy with my service.

We received a few bids on gutters for the house and shed and Clearview had the best pricing so we selected them to do the work. We met with Gregg to discuss our desires and received the estimate, which indicated white gutters as desired. When Gregg came out a few weeks later, we realized, about halfway through the work, that he was putting brown gutters on the house (brown was the color of the hou...

Gregg did a great job. The gutters look great and don't leak. He was very punctual, and it came to less than the estimate. He was very nice to work with.

Gregg diagnosed the problem (gutter had been installed incorrectly, water couldn't drain properly. He had to order a special gutter to match the rest of the house. Called me when he was ready, and was able to schedule so I could keep dogs inside. Very happy!
