Professional Gutter Cleaning Services
Gutter cleaning is a time-consuming chore, and it can be dangerous to trudge up and down a ladder. Be safe while maintaining and repairing the gutter system that is protecting your home from property and water damage.
Why Hire Gutter Tex for Gutter Cleaning?
Gutter Tex uses industry-specific tools, equipment, and safety methods for effective and affordable gutter cleaning services. Our professional gutter cleaners are employees (not subcontractors or day laborers) covered by liability and workers’ compensation insurance.
Regular gutter cleaning prevents buildup and protects the value of your home. We will remove debris from your gutters and downspouts and clear the roof near your gutter system. Your gutter cleaner will verify that water flows correctly to avoid soil and terrain damage, or that it is properly collecting in rain barrels if in use.
During your gutter cleaning, we will also inspect and identify areas in need of repair to include the gutter system, siding, or exterior trim. We can discuss options that will save you money and add value.
“Gutter Tex came by my house and did a phenomenal job cleaning out our gutters. Lucky for us it was right before the big storm we had later that week. We hadn’t cleaned them since we moved in a few years back so we were happy to have them out there. They were timely, professional, and very thorough with the work. Also, working with Dan-O, in particular, is truly great. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone work as hard as he does and provide as great customer service! We will definitely be working with them in the future!”

The Hazards of Clogged Gutters
Over time, debris such as leaves, needles, twigs, seeds, pinecones, pollen, flowers, dirt, and even branches will build up in your gutter. This debris causes gutter water to flow slower and eventually clog altogether.
Standing water in the gutters will rot shingles, flashing, create a hotbed for mosquitos, roaches and other bugs, and cause leaks in the roof. Before long, water in your gutters will overflow, causing tiger striping and damage to the siding.
In the Austin area, gutter cleaning really should be completed twice a year; especially if you have numerous trees near your home.
- Overflowing gutter water running down the side of your house also erodes windowsills, door jambs, and the crown molding around them. It can seep inside interior walls, bringing mold, mildew, streaking, and water damage inside your home.
- Uncontrolled water can pool around the foundation of the house and flood the basement or crawl space. Additionally, it will erode soil, and damage plants and landscaping while splashing dirt onto the house exterior.
- As debris accumulates, it adds weight to the gutter system. Over time this can alter the gutter slope, bend gutters and hangers, and even cause the gutters to rip free from the house.
- Exposed and damaged siding and beams are more susceptible to rot, mold, water damage, and bug infestations.
“I bought a house a couple years back, but never had the gutters checked. I reached out to Gutter Tex. They were timely, professional, and had excellent communication. My favorite part of using Gutter Tex was their honesty. Dan (the owner) openly answered my questions and was sure I was informed. Also, my gutters look great!”

How Do I Wash Dirt or Stains Off My Gutters?
Sometimes the outside of your gutters get dirty with tree sap, insecticide, or caked-on dirt and don’t look their best. You can wash them using a non-abrasive household detergent with a soft rag, sponge, or soft bristle brush with a long extension handle. Do not rub vigorously. Rinse immediately with a freshwater garden hose.
For stubborn stains, use a heavy-duty cleaner such as Fantastik. Do not use cleaners containing abrasive particles, ammonia, solvents, or paint removers.
