Doing a little research and asking the right questions can really help when you are thinking about hiring gutter cleaning services. While there is nothing really complicated about the actual process of gutter cleaning, the company you hire and your satisfaction are very important. Here are three things homeowners should ask when researching gutter cleaning companies:
1. Are They Experienced and Knowledgeable?
Like we said, gutter cleaning is not a particularly complex job at the core of it – removing the debris from inside the channels and downspouts and checking to make sure it works is easy enough. It is the reason why homeowners feel they can do it themselves overlooking the specialized knowledge and safety aspects that a professional gutter cleaning company like Mr. Gutter Cleaner brings.
Once you have narrowed down your search of companies to just a few in your area, spend a little time and do some research. Look online for references and reviews and call them up or ask questions by email.
Ask about things like how many years they have been in business, how much they seem to know about the area, and of course – what they know about cleaning gutters. We’ve answered many of these questions in our FAQ section. Pay attention to if they are paying attention to you. Are they really listening to what you are saying or asking them? If they are not then move on. If they guess about what to do with the debris or say “I don’t know” or “we’ll see” is also a good reason to just move on to another company.
2. Do They Stand Behind Their Gutter Cleaning Services?
A stand-up gutter cleaning service like Mr. Gutter Cleaner is going to stand behind their work – no ifs, and’s, or buts. A lawn mowing service should guarantee they will mow your lawn – right? It is what you’re paying for. The same holds true for gutter cleaning. The company should guarantee that your gutters and downspouts have been cleaned and they should be able to prove it with photos (you don’t want to be climbing up there just to check).
Either way, your gutter cleaning should be guaranteed. Now that is not to say that a week later your gutters are all full of debris again from leaf fall or a storm. That is something else all together. The company you choose should guarantee the service they provide and complete the job as defined.
3. Do They Make the Process Easy?
Everybody is busy with their work, lives, and family. The last thing you need is a long, drawn out process just to get your gutters and downspouts cleaned a couple times each year. Everything from getting a quote to scheduling and billing has to be easy and take a minimum amount of time. Ask how long it takes to get a quote? Do they have to come to your house to get a quote or can they do it online like Mr. Gutter Cleaner? Is scheduling done to fit your schedule? Do you have to be home for the service? How do you pay your invoice? Will you have to write a check and leave it under the mat?
