How often should they be cleaned?
Depending on the location and trees surrounding the property, recommends having gutters maintained in the spring and fall.
I recommend people calling me in the fall when all of their leaves are down or almost down. In the springtime, maple trees get those little helicopters that go everywhere, including into your gutter.
Professional down-pipe cleans are equally important as these can restrict the rainwater flow which can cause them to back up and overflow, also causing extensive harm to your property.
Judgement of the clearing of the spouting and downspouts are based on how often the leaves fall and the type of leaves.
Gutter Maintenance schedules should be based on environment ie evergreen or deciduous plants and trees can play an important factor and you may require your spouting to be cleared every 6 (six) months.
