    Default Gutter Cleaning Video

    Hey Guys,

    With all the talk and questions about exterior gutter cleaning, I thought I would make a little video showing you how I clean gutters. I probably brushed twice as much as what was necessary for times sake. If you were to allow a few minutes for dwell time, you could get by with a lot less, but dwell time on a video is boring! Also, when your filming something, you want it to be perfect, so I brushed more on purpose.

    Wished I had a dirtier gutter to show you, but this was all I had..

    Good stuff, Micah.

    We've been using a pump up sprayer to apply the chem to the brush. It conserves a lot more chem that way, I've found.

    That's a great idea. I've thought about rigging up a spraying nozzle right above the brush. It would have a trigger down towards the bottom of the pole. You could spray the cleaning solution right onto the gutter.. would save a lot of work lowering the pole and raising it back up again.

    Either powered by a pump-up.. or better yet a 12v pump

    That's what I wanted to do for this last job, but didn't have the time to do it.

    Let me tell you that know I'm really thinking that we might have a different kind of "dirt" in the gutters here and there, since the ones I see here are never uniformly dirty, they are streaked really really bad, so at the end, even if you clean it well, you might end up with some shadowing.

    Thanks for posting the video, it made me see that what I was doing wasn't wrong at all.

    That was Gutter zap right ?

    Nice video Micah! I like the dual angle of the brush you're using. Is that the Mr. Long Arm brush that WCR sells?

    I like my brush just fine but the dual angle would be an improvement.

    No that is just a brush from a local janitors supply. They work pretty well for gutters and general pressure washing. The two different levels really help out.

    Thanks for posting that video. I like the angle brush that you are using as well. Have to give one of them a try on the next job. I have been using a solution called Mold Armor sold at Home Depot. I use it straight out of the bottle on really tough gutter faces. Works really well and isnt that expensive. Nice video Micah.
