You should take pictures, before and after and use them in your marketing material and on your website!

Yes per linear ft of gutter. It's a nice a simple way to get an idea how much to charge.

Hi,
I am about to do my first gutter cleaning job and my wife suggested a half gallon milk jug to dig out the leaves. I have not tried it yet, but with its square shape and a handle, I think it should work really well.

Default hmmm

i like the bottle idea might try that myself.

I use rubber gloves I wet the gutters first a little bit if it hasnt been raining. i usually do all my gutter's in the rain if i can. Easier that way I found. Once it's wet then. easier to get and get out. dunno. What do you guys grab a tape measurer and go from side to side? Just shout a number, nobody climbs a 2 story house. Wait till you do a 3 story apartment building.

How do you guys clean down spouts that go into the ground? Just so i know how to clean my own at the shop Joke, i some times have to clean them at customers that i cut trees over their house. I use a leaf blower, and blow it out the end, but if its already dirty.. That don't work so well.
