How Often Should I Clean My Gutters

gutter cleaning frequency

There are three things to consider when asking this question.


1.) The frequency of rain in your area. Kelowna is typically a dry area most of the year, with the majority of rain coming in the spring and fall. Kelowna gets an average of about 380 millimeters of precipitation per year with about 1/5 of the it falling as snow. If we compare that to a place like Vancouver where they experience an average of 1500 millimeters of rain you can see that the amount of times you would want to clean your gutters per year would be different. 💧💧💧💧💧💧


2.) Rainwater is spilling over. If you notice the water is starting to spill over on a day with heavy rain, its a good indicator that your gutter system or downspouts are clogged. This is a sign they should be cleaned in order to mitigate risk on the property.


3.) How many trees are around your property? If you have a lot of trees around your home or structure, particularly dropping leaves or pine needles, then you will need to have the gutters cleaned more often.
At a minimum here in Kelowna you will want to have your gutters cleaned once per year, but in most cases two is the magic number. Spring and Fall is our professional recommendation. Again, it is going to depend on your location and the above factors. In some cases we service our clients gutters 4-5 times per year because of trees etc.


The average cleaning frequency we recommend is twice per year. Once in the spring and once in the fall.
