  • cleaning gutters

    the center i work at has some very dirty gutters and gutter capping i have multiple things stripper solution simple green and other things with poor to no results just curious if anyone can give me an idea of some to try.

    If they are plastic/pvc, best results for me have been: dust mop then hot water mop. That's it. I found that using soap in the water left streaks or residue marks on the gutters/capping. Spot cleaning with soapy water is fine, but to do general front to back clean, hot water only on the mop. I dust mop first to get the extra layer of dust/dirt out of the way.

      Try a spot clean with a water based cleaner like Castrol Superclean. If that won't take if off your in trouble. If it works mix it into a pail of very hot water and scrub like mad. May help having a guy follow with a clean dry rag tied to a gutter mop. Change water every 4 lanes. I agree with Loadtoad. If gutters are kept up hot water is all that you need.

        Make sure your lane machine isn't spraying cleaner into the gutters. Cleaner overspray is best cleaned with hot water, but it's not easy to remove.
