Rain Gutter Cleaning

Income $ 40,000       $100,000

The range of income for the first year should be around $40,000. The key to achieving a higher in come range is to hire others to do the work for you, so you can expand your business beyond your ability to handle the work load.


You should develop a regular monthly route for cleaning the gutters on a monthly basis for both your residential and business clients. You might want to add on other related services such as yard clean up, hauling refuse, putting up screens, replacing fascia boards and downspouts, and even installing and taking down Christmas lights.


Your clients will consist of homeowners, apartment dwellers, and small business owners who own their own buildings.

Marketing Plan

Most jobs can usually be acquired by placing an ad in the paper, and by leaving your cards at the local grocery stores and especially with Realtors.  Door knockers are an excellent way to canvas a neighborhood. Create an ad special with a time-based action. For example, “25% off if you act by April 1st.” Most people respond to cost savings and time constraints. You can incorporate the 25% discount into your pricing schedule.

Power Partners

Your Power Partners will consist of interior decorators, residential Realtors, handymen, general contractors, and landscapers. They’ll be aware of when families in need of your services.


You will need to acquire the proper training, tools, and systems to choose from such as flushing or vacuuming the gutters. You will also need materials like screens for the gutters.
