Gutter cleaning is one home maintenance task that should never be overlooked. Clogged gutters can lead to expensive repairs when left untreated.

If you can't or don't want to clean your gutters, call on a professional to do the work. They should remove all leaves and other debris from your roof, gutters and downspouts. They should also check the overall condition of your gutters and make any necessary repairs.

The price to clean out your gutters may vary. Factors include how many trees you have around your house, how many stories your house is, and whether you have a flat or steep roof. 

While leaf guards, covers and screens can help reduce debris collecting in your gutter, you should still check them regularly. Experts say up to 20 percent of leaves and other material can get through a gutter cover.
