In 1998, Jim Lidl was faced with cleaning his two-story gutters. It felt like an impossible task. You could say this feeling led to the creation of Glide Force Gutter Cleaning in 2017. This business may make it possible for you to clean your gutters without the need for a ladder.

After years of researching, Lidl patented a state-of-the-art technology that uses high-pressure air to clean gutters. Thus, Glide Force Gutter Cleaning was born. Lidl has helped to grow the business by handling the market development and field training.

Glide Force Gutter Cleaning started franchising in 2020 and is looking to grow its network across the United States.
