    I would clean gutters anytime, but personally, I prefer to do it when the gutters are dried out, as its easier to remove dust/dirt than mud. If you buy the gear it will come in handy, either way. To give you a rough idea, for a typical sized semi, we charge £10 per side. Others maybe be different across the country, but if I was just 2 sides, front and back. Possibly move the ladder 3/4 times. each side. I would charge £20. Could take anywhere between 40 mins to an hour.

    You could go out and buy, gutter vacs etc, but unless you are intending on doing large commercial buildings, I would just buy stand offs, a scoop, pair of rubber gloves, and a bucket. Will cost you about £40. You can buy a good little scoop from WCW. I would also recommend buying a narrow brush as well.

    We use a clark vacuum, and have a minimum £50 charge which will equate to two sides.

    Here is link for the vac systems www.guttercleaningsystems.co.uk

    If the guttering is still frozen then you have no hope in hell in clearing it out using a guttervac :D
