Gutter Face Cleaning
So what are the ugly black streaks, also called zebra stripes, on the outside of gutters? Most people think its mold and mildew from the moisture that accumulates on gutters. While some of it may indeed be mold, most of the time it’s not.
There are two schools of thought. Both are correct. The first cause is the tar and asphalt from the roofing shingles electrostatically bonding to the outside of the gutter. Second, pollution and dirt build up on the top lip of the gutter. When moisture combines with these pollutants, it streams down the face of the gutter. Future precipitation will continuously follow the same path. Over time, the buildup becomes alternating light and dark stripes.
Regardless, this is a real tough stain, so unlike mold and mildew traditional low pressure chemical washing will not remove tiger stripes from gutters.
Home Proud Services cleans your gutter facings entirely by hand. We equip our ladders with ladder standoffs ensuring your gutters will not be damaged. Ladder stabilizers allow our ladders to rest on the roof and not your gutters, protecting your gutters from ladder dents.
