About Our Gutter Cleaning in Wheaton, IL

Not every handyman service offers professional gutter cleaning services, because it requires experience and a meticulous eye for detail. When you choose Mr. Handyman for gutter services, you can expect a thorough process that takes the entire exterior of your home's condition into consideration. We want your gutters to be clean, but we also want to make sure the surrounding components, such as the fascia boards and soffits, are in good condition. Want to learn more? Keep reading to discover more about what's involved in our services to get your gutters clean and ready for all types of weather. 


We begin every gutter cleaning service with a rigorous inspection of your gutter system. Your gutters are attached to your house's fascia boards, which run horizontally on the edge of the roof. Gutters are designed to collect stormwater and direct it away from your home. If your gutters have begun to sag, they may have damaged these parts too. If they have become loose or fallen off, they might have also caused damage to your home's siding, and there's a good chance that the downspout has been affected as well. These parts are interconnected and need to be examined to verify they're in good shape. But if your gutters are in good shape, we will just proceed with a simple cleaning. 

Gutter Cleaning Process

The gutter cleaning process involves removing any debris, dirt, and leaves from your gutters and downspouts that lead to clogged gutters and stop rainwater from flowing freely from the roof to the ground. This is a relatively straightforward process, but if you are not completely confident on a tall ladder, this could be an unsafe process. Our professional gutter cleaners have years of experience with gutter cleaning in Wheaton, IL, and are properly trained for the task. 

Gutter Repair

You did it, you got your gutters cleaned. Maybe you've even got into a routine of regular gutter cleaning. But perhaps the next time when you call on us to clean your gutters, we notice slight instances of damage, such as loose sections, cracks, small holes and sagging. This is not uncommon, and not something to fret over either, as long as you address it immediately. A collection of wet leaves and other debris can get heavy, causing your gutters to pull away from the fascia board or even begin to sag. This puts pressure on both the gutters and the parts they are attached to. Getting a prompt gutter repair so your system runs smoothly is highly recommended. Types of minor gutter repairs we may perform within the service include:

  • Patching up small holes or cracks 
  • Re-coating the surfaces of your gutters to protect them from heavy rain 
  • Tightening loose fasteners
  • Reconnecting gutter joints
  • Reattaching downspouts
  • Manage sloping issues
  • Even replace severely damaged sections

Gutter Guard Installation (Optional)

Choosing to install gutter guards is a worthwhile investment because, ultimately, they can save you time and money, and reduce the nuisance of excessive debris buildup. That said, regular gutter cleaning and inspection are still recommended. 

There is a plethora of gutter guards to choose from for your traditional or seamless gutters, including:

  • Screen gutter guards. These have a plastic or wire grid that will prevent leaves and debris from coming into your gutters. Either is affordable and simple to install.  
  • Micro mesh gutter guards. These types of gutter guards are an excellent choice for blocking micro bits of debris like sand and dirt. They do once in a while require a subtle pressure washing to untangle the debris from the mesh. 
  • Brush gutter guards. These gutter guards look like a water bottle cleaner, with bristles that catch leaves and debris. They're flexible, rest inside of your gutters, are very cost-efficient, and work with seamless metal gutters. 
  • Reverse curve gutter guards. With these installed, water will flow over the top and in a downward curve before dropping into the gutter. This stops leaves and pine needles from entering your gutter system.

FAQs: Gutter Cleaning in Wheaton, IL

What are the benefits of professional gutter cleaning in Wheaton, IL?

Choosing a professional for gutter cleaning comes with many benefits:

  • Saves you time: If you haven't cleaned your gutters before, then it can be a long, grueling process. While the process isn't complicated, it can be physically taxing with ladder repositioning, and climbing up and down from it. Hiring a pro means the job will be efficiently completed.

What happens if I don’t clean my gutters?

Putting off gutter cleaning is very easy to do if you are taking it on yourself. But neglecting the job is not something you should do either, especially if you want to maintain the longevity of your gutters. Even if you skip out on one cleaning, you run risk to:

  • Pest infestations: Insects thrive off of organic matter, and they also just happen to love water. Clogged gutters lead to mosquito, spider, and termite infestations not only around your home but even in it. 
  • Damage to your fascia, soffit, siding and roof: Gutter damage can affect each of these components. Having them cleaned regularly will keep tabs on their condition.
  • Leaks: When there is blockage to the flow of rainwater, the rain water spills over the edge of your gutters and down the side of your home. While siding and window trims are there to protect your home against water damage.
  • Compromised roofing: When rain overflows your gutter system and pours onto your roof, it can leak through the shingles and damage the inside of your home.
