Gutter Cleaning Services
Gutters protect your home by channeling water away from your foundation. If they get too full, a number of problems can develop, some of which can cause permanent damage to your property. When it comes to gutter cleaning in Houston, homeowners trust ABC Home & Commercial Services to get the job done right.
Choose ABC for your Gutter Cleaning Needs
Our technicians use a specially-made tool to push sticks, leaves, and other debris across the length of your gutters to one side.
While some companies will use a hose to push the debris out from the gutter, we manually push the debris so the residue won’t damage or tarnish your driveway, yard or gardens. After checking the downspout for any blockages, our technicians will choose whether to use a leaf blower or disassemble your downspout to get rid of any remaining buildup.
Taking care of your gutters is not just a cosmetic concern. Too much debris can act as an attractive nesting ground for pests like birds and mice. If you neglect them for long enough, clogged gutters can cause permanent damage. When too much debris gathers in your gutters, they can get too heavy and detach from your house.
Warning signs that a home is in need of gutter cleaning:
- Pests in debris build-up
- Rodent or bird nests
- Visible buildup of leaves, dirt and other residue
- Seeds sprouting
- Improper flow of water (when you see water coming out of the top or sides of your roof instead of down the downspout)
After your gutters are cleaned out, our technicians clean up your property, leaving it looking better than they found it, by disposing of any debris or waste that came from the gutters. Consult with our exterior cleaning team today to get an itemized estimate…It’s free.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide free estimates?
Yes! After you call ABC, we will arrange for a technician to come out to your home and take a look at your home’s gutters. When they are done taking a closer look at your gutters, we will then give you an estimate. In some cases, we are even able to give you a quote over the phone. When you are happy with your estimate, we will schedule a time to come out that is convenient for you to get the work done.
Can you remove those black lines from my gutters?
Absolutely! Commonly known as “tiger stripes”, these unsightly streaks you may seem forming along gutters are a result of electrostatic bonding of debris to your aluminum gutters. We know Houston homeowners don’t want to see these stripes, so we can use a combination of power washing equipment and special cleaners to break up this chemical bond and remove any black lines or streaks.
How often should I have my gutters cleaned?
It depends, based on what type of trees you have in your yard; some trees like pine shed a lot. Since Houston faces a magnitude of weather changes, with high winds and storms, these can also add to the build-up of debris in your gutters.
We generally recommend that homeowners in Houston have their gutters cleaned twice a year to break up the debris that can form in them. However, if your gutters are positioned at a steeper angle to the roof, they may require more frequent cleaning.
Since homeowners often don’t realize that their gutters need to be cleaned out until they’re in bad shape, ABC offers a recurring service to take the guesswork out of scheduling an appointment and maintain your home’s gutters on a regular basis.
Do I need to be at home when my gutters are cleaned?
We’re here to take care of your home, so you can be out enjoying your precious free time! After the initial consultation, you are welcome to run errands while we are cleaning your gutters or grab lunch from the Original Ninfa’s. We simply ask that technicians are provided with instructions on accessing the perimeter of your property, and that pets and children are not outside while our technicians are working.
We offer a full range of exterior cleaning services.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
Are you a super attractor for mosquitoes? These pesky insects are attracted to many odors and chemicals that humans give off, and some people attract them more than others.
