  • wet mopping gutters

    when you wet mop the gutters do you guys stripped the lanes before you do it or do you leave the mop bucket on the approach?I was taught always to strip the lane bring them my ****ing on the line and use and wet my with the lean strip My mechanic wants us to lose leave the mop bucket on the approach without stripping the lanes. I just want to make sure that it works doing it that way but I have never done it I tried it once and I got yelled

    I leave the mop bucket on the lane right in front of foul line since we don't oil the first 18inches. It keeps the water from getting all over the approaches.

      We always strip the lane first so you can walk on it without risk of wiping out. Big sheet of cardboard on the approach under the bucket for protection.

        strip lanes to make it easier/safer for me to walk. bucket stays at foul line, although that's just because, since with the lanes stripped i could drag it with me down the lane.

        That said, i always buff the approaches after gutter work anyhow so drips from the bucket don't matter.

            Would be nice to have something like a swifter wet mop thing with the disposable wipes shaped like a gutter.

              I use a pump sprayer full of diluted lane cleaner and a pair of gutter mops, one wet & one dry. I'll usually spray several gutters at a time, then wet mop/scrub in one direction, dry mop in the other. When the wet mop gets too nasty that head goes into the laundry bin and the dry mop becomes the next wet mop. In our 20 lane house I might go through 4-5 mops heads by the time I'm done.
              Oh, and I do strip the lanes first so I won't break a hip.

                I don't see how it make sense not to strip the lanes either way you're getting water and footprints on them so you have to oil after
