The leaves on your lawn may already be cleaned up, but what about the ones in your gutters?

Clogged gutters can lead to water damage in your house and your yard.

Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List, said cleaning them yourself could be risky since climbing on ladders and roofs is involved.

She said hiring a pro is safer and cheaper than replacing your gutters.

"The cost to clean your gutters can range from $75 to $200 depending on the size of your house," Hicks said.
