Yes, they did fill up that fast (2017 version)

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves fall, customer’s call us out, and the gutter are cleaned . . . and then more leaves fall.  Unfortunately we never know when the leaves will fall from day to day, or how many will come down at a time.  I have already had customers who we did on a Monday call on that Thursday thinking the gutters were missed.  In most cases at most homes, we take some before and after pictures, particularly around this time of year, just to make sure we have evidence in case a claim is made.  I just had one of those today, and wanted to use this as an example.

We cleaned the home on 11/17.  Here are the photos form the cleaning:

So 10 days later we, on 11/25/17, they sent us these pictures:

As you can see in comparison the pictures are of the same house and the gutters are already on their way to being full again.  Unfortunately this time of year, it doesn’t take long.  So if you just had your gutters cleaned 3 days to 3-4 weeks ago, and you look up and see debris, and it’s between August-December or March-April, it is most likely fresh debris because yes, it can fill up again that fast.
