My 2 older boys have moved out of the house and I'm at that age when climbing a ladder can be a disaster (my dad fell off ladders 3 times ... you think he would have learned the first time). I felt like it was time for a professional solution. I got several quotes for various over priced products but found the both the product and price for gutter guards at Maple Windows to be excellent. They were able to complete the installation in one week which was amazing. But even more amazing was the professional manner in which the product was installed. They went beyond the call of duty even installing a splash guard (which I had purchased previously) to stop problem with overflow caused by a valley bringing too much water down and bypassing the eves. I am in no way affiliated with this company but if you are looking for a permanent solution to cleaning eves then this is the company to do it for you.
