In the upstate New York area we have two factors that make cleaning your gutters twice a year necessary. The fact that we have a lot of big trees and experience a full Autumn that drops all of the leaves. The important time to get it done is in the fall after the leaves have fallen. If you are in a particularly heavily wooded lot you may want to consider doing it a couple of times a year.
The real measure of when you need to clean your gutters is in checking gutter performance when it is raining. If the water is not rushing through the drain then there is a clog somewhere in your gutter. If there is any spot along your roof-line where the water is pouring over the gutter there is either a clog or enough debris at that location to allow the water to flow over the top of it. Then there is always the obvious sign, you can see plant growth standing up in your gutters.
