So with Fall right around the corner its a great time to talk about gutter cleaning. First of all whats the big deal with gutter cleaning?

But when neglected, experts say gutters can turn from a necessity to a nightmare.

“If you let gutter cleaning go by the wayside, it can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars," says Jeff Lambert, a supervisor with The Gutter Man in Houston.
