Gutter Cleaning Calgary and Edmonton
Eavestrough cleaning becomes an essential maintenance task for homeowners in the fall, spring and even throughout the summer.
The leaves on our beautiful city trees look amazing – but as soon as they fall and start collecting in the yard, they can cause problems with drainage and mould unless they are cleared from gutters and downspouts around the roofing.
Rather than scaling ladders and getting your hands dirty, let the Yardworx team do your gutter cleaning in Calgary or Edmonton. We’ll even fix up any gutter problems as part of the service.
Eavestrough cleaning is just one of the many exterior maintenance services we offer, we can also provide window cleaning and power washing services to ensure your home is looking its best.
Why should you get your gutters cleaned?
Cleaning gutters out and removing leaf buildup is not many people’s idea of fun. There are better things to do with your weekends, but if you neglect your gutters, you will regret it.
The purpose of gutters and downspouts is to collect rainwater and to channel it away from your roof and away from the foundations of the home, where it can cause damage.
We’re proud of our trees but those falling leaves sure do love the gutters and downspouts in Calgary and Edmonton. Routine gutter maintenance is essential, especially throughout the fall.
As well as leaves, other debris can gather in gutters too, especially after big storms. Blockages can cause water to overflow and potentially gather around the foundations of the property. From there, it could seep through to the basement or crawl space, causing expensive damage.
In winter, it can result in ice on the driveway or steps, creating hidden hazards for your family and guests. So, the fall is the ideal time of year to give some proper care and attention to the eavestroughs and downspouts.
In extreme cases, blocked, clogged, overloaded gutters may even place extra strain on your roof and fascia, causing roof damage or, worse, roof collapse. Regular cleaning of gutters makes sure that your roof stays free of water and all other unwanted materials.

How often should you clean your eavestrough?
It’s best to clean your eavestroughs at least twice per year wherever you live in Canada. In Calgary and Edmonton, where trees abound, you should plan gutter cleans throughout the springtime, summer, and especially during the fall. For homes with many trees in the neighbourhood, you may like to arrange a check and clean once a month for extra peace of mind.
We also have long, icy winters here. In these conditions, the gutters may not be able to drain water properly from your roof. You want to avoid water buildup at all costs on your roof, as it can cause damage to roofing materials if it regularly freezes and thaws. Check gutters and roofing during the winter, as well as after storms, when debris gathering in eavestroughs and downspouts can become a problem.
Frequently Asked Questions
If the water starts to fall out of the side of the eavestrough and not through the downspout into the yard, it means that there’s a clog.
You need to call Yardworx before the water freezes and causes damage.
Most homeowners don’t want the hassle of climbing ladders and clearing gutters. It really is no fun!
Besides that, it’s difficult to do the job thoroughly, effectively, and safely without the right equipment.
To do the job properly, you will need:
- An extension ladder
- Standoff stabilizers
- Tarp, hose, and spray nozzles
- Masks, goggles, and gloves
- A leaf blower, pressure washer and/or plumber’s snake tool (in some cases)
When working at the top of a ladder, digging out the debris and clearing the downspouts is no small task.

If your house is more than two storeys, it’s essential to hire a professional.
