Our gutter cleaning technicians use a specially-designed pole to move leaves, sticks and other debris across the length of your gutters to one side.
Then, debris will be removed by hand so that it does not fall onto your driveway, walkway or flower beds. Our technicians will then check your downspouts for any blockages. Depending on the extent of the clog, we will either use a leaf blower to remove the obstruction or disassemble your downspout to remove the source of the problem.
Once the gutter cleaning is complete, our crews will take away the waste materials collected from your gutters and make sure your property is left in pristine condition.
Since many of us need a ladder to inspect our gutters up close, we can often miss signs of accumulated debris. Some of the most common warning signs that indicate that your gutter cleaning is overdue include:
- Water overflowing out of the top of your gutters instead of coming out of downspouts
- Seeds which have sprouted in your gutters
- Clumps of dirt
- Rodent or bird nests
- Pest infestations
If enough materials collect in your gutters, the added weight can cause your gutters to deteriorate, which can result in your gutters leaking and eventually pulling away from your home.
With ABC’s help, you will save yourself precious free time. Most importantly, you will be safe from dangers associated with getting up on a ladder, a risk which is linked to over 160,000 annual visits to our country’s emergency rooms. ABC’s equipment will do the job quicker, safer and better than you could do with a hose and a bucket.
When you choose ABC for your gutter cleaning, you are selecting a company which has provided a range of top-quality home services in the Austin community for generations. Our customers say they select ABC because they know that we conduct thorough background checks on all our employees and because our technicians are also subject to drug testing.

Do you provide free estimates?
When you contact ABC, we will send out an inspector to take a look at your gutters and assess their condition. We will then present you with an estimate to have your gutters cleaned. Once you approve the estimate, we can set up a convenient time for the work to be done.
Can you remove those black lines from my gutters?
Homeowners can notice ugly black lines or streaks which form along gutters. These are called “tiger stripes” and form as a result of electrostatic bonding of debris to your aluminum gutters.
ABC can use power washing equipment and special cleaners on your gutters to disrupt this chemical bond and remove this unsightly residue.
How often should I have my gutters cleaned?
The frequency of your gutter cleaning will depend largely on the number of trees situated over your roof. Many of our customers choose to have their gutters cleaned twice a year to avoid any potential damage from clogged gutters. Gutters positioned next to roofs with a steeper angle may require more frequent cleaning.
With ABC, you can opt to have gutter cleaning set up as a recurring service to make sure this important home maintenance task gets done on a regular basis.
Do I need to be at home when my gutters are cleaned?
In most cases, our gutter cleaning crews can perform their work when you are away at work. If you choose this option, we simply ask homeowners for means to access the perimeter of your home for our work and that pets and children remain indoors during your gutter cleaning service.
