Naples FL Ft. Myers FL Roof Cleaning with gutters
Permalink  
 


If the shingle or tile roof has gutters and they are badly stained and you want to get them sparkling clean, here is the method...you must apply your detergent to a dry gutter system.  We use a potasium hydroxide based soap.  Others work too, the secret is to lightly brush the soap on in sections.  Do not let it dry, so work with the weather.  Naples FL and Ft. Myers FL can be hot and sunny, so it dries faster.  Go back to the start and put a bit more elbow grease into it and you will notice the streaks come right off.  Again, work in sections and DONT let it dry or you will have to repeat the process.  After the 2nd brushing rinse immediatley without getting untreated sections wet with rinse water, ie spray the opposite direction.  We use telescoping wands for higher areas.  Unless the gutters have been seriously neglected, we have found that this method restores the paint to almost new.  White paint sometimes takes a bit more work or a second application.

What is the name of the soap you use if you dont mind me asking?

I've noticed Ive never had a problem with the tan/beige gutters.
Always shine rite up.

Its called Formula 611 but its a local thing.  Talk to your chem guy and ask for a potassium hydroxide degreaser and the proper dilution.  Ive also heard Simple Green works sometimes believe it or not.  Also. the RV shops sell a few products for black streak removal, but I think they are a bit pricey.

F13 Gutter Granade is a potassium hydroxide based cleaner. It works very well. I used it all year this year. I am going to try out some different cleaners in the off season. I know Jeff from Raystown Roof Cleaning uses butyl based cleaners and loves how they work. They are a lot cheaper and available from any local HD or Lowes.

I had a customer that tried lacquer thinner on his neglected, white, badly stained gutters.  It worked immediately.  And didn't stop working.  All the way through the paint down to the metal.  jawdrop.gif  Not recommended.  banned.gif

I actually removed some today off of a Pool Enclosure using Simple Green. I was surprised that it actually worked to remove the black streaks.
