No New Posts REMOVING RUST STAINS ON A ROOF (Preview)
What is the fastest and cheapest chemical to use to remove rust stains on a roof?  House has stains from a old TV antennae mount, and a vent pipe which has no lead cover over it. Just steel pipe. Stained pretty bad. Can it be applied from the gutterline? Impact on gutters and plants?
