Eavestrough cleaning, like other routine household maintenance, must be done on a regular basis. For a variety of reasons you may not want to clean your eaves yourself. For one it's risky. Without the proper equipment or experience your safety could come into question. Secondly, it's a laborious task. Cleaning eavestroughs is dirty and you may not wish to spend your Saturday afternoon cleaning them. If not being able to clean them yourself is an option then the next logical choice is to hire a eavestrough cleaning company.
The first thing you're going to want to look for is credibility. Does the owner offer references? If he or she doesn't or becomes reluctant to forward then this is a red flag. An owner of an eavestrough cleaning company that refuses or becomes upset when asked about references obviously has something to hide. If you talk to any references you'll want to enquire about the companies functionality, politeness and how effectively they did the job.
The next consideration you'll want to make has to do with liability, insurance and bonded. Check with your state or province to ensure what requirements are needed for a professional to come on your property and clean your eaves. Don't simply take the word of the owner that they have all their proper licenses. This again will raise red flags if they become ignorant to opening providing you this information. This is a crucial necessity when hire any company that does any work on your property.
The appearance of a eavestrough cleaning company will tell you a lot about the quality of work and demeanor they will have on your property. Assuming you've checked some references and confirmed that they have all the correct paper work in order, you should now have a look at their appearance. When you met a representative or went to their offices were they clean? Were their work vehicles clean? What was the appearance of their staff? Do they have uniforms? Were they clean shaven? I'll put this way: If it came down to two companies and they were practically identical with the exception that company 'A' had a clean cut crew while company 'B' didn't have uniforms and their staff resemble homeless people - then which company would you choose? I would tend to believe that the company that takes care of their equipment, vehicles and appearance would likely conduct a more professional job on my property - but that's just me.
Keeping these ideas in mind and using a little intelligence you can hire the best eavestrough cleaning that will ensure the job is done right the first time.
