In short, yes! Our biodegradable treatment cleans gutters very well, along with soffits, facia, and other such surfaces on homes.
The first photo is a home we power washed in Kirkwood, MO and you can see how well our soft washing process works on gutters typically.
However, there are some instances where staining or certain discolorations cannot be safely removed, such as tiger striping.
In the second photo, you can see the difference between the common fungus and dirt on the gutters we cleaned today versus the tiger striping we occasionally see on some homes around St. Louis.
What is Tiger Striping?
Tiger striping occurs because some manufacturers of gutters anodize the aluminum to get paint to adhere to them. This process can differ between manufacturers and between batches and in some instances leads to this consistent-looking striping on some gutters.
Unfortunately, due to the electrostatic bond with the aluminum, such stripes cannot typically be removed with the recommended soft washing process that removes fungus and dirt.
Proper maintenance is important to prevent gutter staining. Effective and timely washing assists in cutting down on stains of other types. The longer contamination sits, the more likely it is to stain.
So yes, in most instances, unless tiger striping or stains exist, our soft wash process cleans and brightens gutters very well.
