How to Make Extra Easy Money Cleaning Gutters

So if you are interested in a really easy way to make money now, you could probably make money tomorrow cleaning gutters. This is a really easy business to start because all it requires is a ladder and a bucket. If you already have a bucket all you have to do is borrow the ladder. (For a complete list of recommended equipment please visit our links. If you have a job, you could do it on Saturdays, if you are between jobs you could easily make 300 dollars a day cleaning out gutters on 3 houses.

Peak seasons vary throughout the country but generally the fall and the Spring are super busy times for gutter cleaners.

To start this business simply find a street that has a lot of trees and fairly nice houses. When you knock doors say something to this effect. Hey, I was in the neighborhood cleaning gutters for a few of your neighbors for a great price and I was wondering if you have cleaned your gutters yet this year? When they say no, ask them if they would like a free estimate to have them cleaned.

If you are people phobic, you may also elect to run fliers. Depending on the area, how good your fliers are, and what time of year it is, you should plan on getting between 2 and 10 jobs for every 500 fliers you run.

A note on picking good neighborhoods. I have cleaned gutters in the past and it seems 90% of people who pay you to clean gutters have a jacuzzi so pick affluent middle class neighborhoods for the best results.

Be careful this job can be dangerous, cold, and dirty, but the worse conditions get, the busier you get. After all no one in their right mind except you wants to clean gutters if they can avoid it.c

    It works with any leaf blower on the market and all parts to build it can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes for less than $30 for most homes.

  4. Hi Gutter Man,
    I was searching for information on cleaning, landed on your site, Gutter Cleaning 101, and have really enjoyed reading through your articles and postings. Your site is extensive and inspiring.
    I have a site that deals with cleaning and common cleaning questions; I don’t sell anything; I just post relevant information and could further promote your site through my Twitter and Facebook connections.
    I think your readers would find my site useful and wondered if you would like to link to me? I think the sites are complimentary and that we would both benefit from linking.
    I would also be interested in posting some tips and articles for your site and would love more information on making that happen. Please contact me at and we can discuss the idea.
    Warm regards,
