Fall clean up (GENERAL UPDATE)

UPDATED 11/20/17:

At the time of this update, it was Monday, November 20th - just before Thanksgiving coming on Thursday this week. And we will likely not update again until early during the week of November 27th. Where we stand now going into this Thanksgiving week opposed to where we thought we would stand was lower than projected. Meaning, last week’s progress turned out to be worse than anticipated due to weather conflicting big time. Progress was limited to about 75% lower than average production, which hurts a lot! Essentially, C N’R was out working in conditions that was really losing us ground rather than gaining. But, the importance and dedication to our fall clean up service always prevails and if we can get some clean ups done on a really bad day, it is better than none. In the end, we are still in a position where all fall clean ups have not been completed one-time through yet, and we are sorry for that. We definitely are doing our best. We understand that the timing of completion is really not suitable for great customer satisfaction. But, please understand that since October 23rd - weather has been up and down like a roller coaster - winds, to rain, to snow, to freeze, to warm, to cold, then more snow, then a waiting period to melt, etc, etc. Hit repeat. Kind of fall we were having, but now it seems that the medium range forecast is favorable for C N’R to complete fall clean ups, just may not be favorable in the timing department. Again, we apologize. Please review the latest update in your zone below for a few more specifics and thank you for your patience.

Fall Gutter Cleaning LATEST UPDATE

UPDATED 11/20/17:
At the time of this update on Monday, November 20th - it was a frosty start to the day, but as it warmed into the 40’s, C N’R was able to get some gutters done. Going to get super cold again coming over the next few days, then it looks to get warmer again on Friday (just after Thanksgiving). Our plan is to get some more gutters completed then. This is our short-term plan for now, but it will not satisfy every single gutter cleaning job on our schedule left to complete by the end of this week. During the early part of the week of November 27th, we will update again on our plan for gutter cleaning services. For more explanation on why our gutter cleaning service has not completed yet this fall is for the same reason above that is explained about fall clean up progress. Stay tuned!

COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES (businesses, apartment, town-homes, etc)

UPDATED 11/20/17:

Commercial properties are now completed one-time through. Plans to come back to any commercial properties are not in place until further notice. More information about this to be posted after the holiday weekend.


Secondary LIST FALL Clean UP CUSTOMERS - SECONDARY LIST FALL CLEAN UP CUSTOMERS: Definition of “secondary” = C N’R provides the option for later sign-up customers to be put on this list. What that means is that C N’R absolutely appreciates the opportunity for more work from new customers! Unfortunately, our fall clean up list fills up during the spring when our renewal contracts are sent out to our existing customers. In order to stay loyal to the customers that do sign up early, we can only take on so many clean ups to give us the best chance of finishing all clean ups. Once the first list has been completed, then we move onto our “secondary list” which usually takes place mid-later November, depending on when we do get started on our first list, and highly dependent on weather.

Each year, C N’R switches the order of the zones, therefore each year, there is a new zone that is first, and there is a new zone that is last.

Cleanup History
2016 Start Date October 27th  
2016 End Date December 7th NOTES:
- Although 10/27 was the official start date, we did not have all crews out until 10/31
- Leaves fell pretty nicely and on-time EXCEPT for Maple Trees. For some reason, Maple Trees hung on way too long (probably the wet summer caused this)
- First 2 weeks of November were unbelievably warm! -
- After the first 2 weeks, it became bumpy with rain/thunderstorms/snow/sleet/drizzle, etc. This made for our “official” ending date to be way late this year because we just could not get a good enough streak after the middle of November to just finish up.
2015 Start Date October 30th  
2015 End Date November 24th A day after we started, we were shut down from a large storm. Really were not getting much done until 11/2 - leaves hung up - late start..
-Warm fall!
- several larger rain/wind storms (long durations).
- Lost about 7-10 days total of work from the long duration rain/wind storms
2014 Start Date October 29th Mother nature did not cooperate this year.  We started after the leaves fell off (they fell in two batches around 10/18 and 10/28).  The fall clean season was windy, rainy and finally snow filled.  As a result of the snow that stayed after November 9th the cleanup season was cut short. 
2014 End Date November 9th (see notes)  
2013 Start Date October 27th  
2013 End Date November 27th (1st Round)December 2nd (2nd round closure) A bit of a late start this year: 50% of the leaves  fell while the other 50% were just starting to change a result the stubborn leaves and a late start, combined with several bouts of snow, wind and rain made for a difficult season.
2012 Start Date October 22nd Our earliest start ever!
2012 End Date November 21st (1st Round)
December 4th (2nd Round)
 Weather? We had it all from rain/snow/freezing through out the clean up process which made it the latest completion date ever, but ironically it was the earliest start ever...
2011 Start Date October 27th
2011 End Date November 10th (1st Round)
November 30th (2nd Round)
Note - Big chunk of leaves fell mid-October, then the rest of the leaves took their time falling and they were very late in falling. Some trees had hardly any leaves down by 11/10, which is very late. Snow held off, first snow of 1.5" fell on 11/19. over Thanksgiving break, all snow melted, then we got back out to complete all 2nd round clean ups. Fall weather was pretty darn good.
2010 Start Date October 23rd (1st Round)
November 8th (2nd Round)
2010 End Date November 17th (1st Round
November 21st (2nd Round)
Note - Leaves fell very early (by about a week), but there were a set of leaves that did not fall early that trickled down during our clean up process...while in progress of second round cleanups, a snowstorm shut us down Nov 13 (10" snow).
2009 Start Date November 1st  
2009 End Date November 23rd Note - Record October precipitation including 3-4" of snow in total led to leaves staying up on the trees longer than usual; about a week longer. At the end of October the leaves dropped in mass.
2008 Start Date October 28th (1st Round)
November 17th (2nd Round)
2008 End Date November 17th (1st Round)
November 21st (2nd Round)
Note - Started out with 9 straight days - then 3 day Rain/Snow/Wind event, and from this point and on, had to deal with either wet and/or frozen conditions (tough environment) - then 3 days in a row of more clean ups, then another 2 day rain/snow delay - then 7 days in a row to finish first round and second round clean ups during this time frame
2007 Start Date October 29th  
2007 End Date November 9th (1st Round)
November 21st (2nd Round)
Note - Although conditions were windier than normal fall seasons, we had a good stretch of dry weather and did not have any threats of snow.
KEY NOTE: Leaves fell about 1 week late
2006 Start Date October 24th  
2006 End Date November 8th (1st Round)
November 16th (2nd Round)
Note - A very similar fall as to last season. Temperatures were cooler than last season and we did dodge a major winter storm on November 7th.
KEY NOTE: Leaves fell about 1 week early.
2005 Start Date October 27th  
2005 End Date November 11th Note - Weather cooperated - Above normal temps, dry and very few days with wind.
2004 Start Date October 28th  
2004 End Date November 12th Note: 2+ inches of rain fell in October causing delays in the final completion date. C N' R fought through the heavy wet leaves to complete all cleanups before the snow flew!
2003 Start Date October 25th  
2003 End Date November 10th Note - Leaves dropped on time, but 2" of snow in early November caused a delay
2002 Start Date November 3rd  
2002 End Date November 22nd Note - Leaves did not cooperate well - leaves hung up for a long period of time - but fortunately the weather cooperated
2001 Start Date October 26th  
2001 End Date November 6th
