I have heard in the past that you should charge $1 per linear foot in gutter cleaning. Does this sound right or what are your rates?

I just did a house that was absolutely horrible, full of paint chips and leaves from 4 years. That house was a total of 108 lin. ft.

Depends on if it was a 1st or 2nd story house. If they were really full a dollar a foot sounds about right. If I could walk on the roof with a blower and just blow them out a little less than a dollar a foot. Like 75 cents.
It was about 25 ft up in the rear. No way you can walk on the roof and blow it.

Sounds about right. Some guys go up to $2/ft for 2nd story stuff. Just depends on what your expenses are and how badly you need the work. I only offer gutter cleaning to existing lawn customers so I do it when I'm there for the lawn also.
My over head for gutter cleaning is nothing except for my time.

I am very slow right now anyways so I am more than happy to do jobs such as that.

Check into a product for gutters called cherry bomb. I know you are talking mostly about cleaning out the gutters, but this product is simply amazing for getting the mildew off of gutters as well. You can charge a pretty penny for it as well because, the average customer doesnt know about it, and many have decided that it is impossible to remove because they have tried a pressure washer and bleach already. I dont know where you can get it, or how much it costs, because an old boss of mine would supply me with it to go out and clean gutters when I used to pressure wash houses. It doesnt take pressure, you just have to be able to brush it on, and rinse it off, and whatever else it may get on
