Gutter Cleaning Request

One of my customer's is asking to get his gutters cleaned.

Do you, as a landscaping company, do this? What price range do you usually charge? Any special tips on how to clean it the most efficiently?

I just did one today, $1.00 per lineal foot for 60' of gutter. Low slope on the roof (about a 4:12) so I just walked it with the small nozzle on the backpack blower. Took about 10 minutes including setting up the ladder.

double check with your insurance carrier, most general liability policies for landscape don't cover the use of ladaders, and if they do they usually only cover ladders to 6 feet or so.

Insurance is key. If you fall it is your health that is on the line.

I'll bet your insurance won't cover you for gutter cleaning. If you fall off the roof, and you live, it's all on you.
