FAQs about gutter cleaning

What is tiger striping on gutters?

Tiger striping (also called zebra striping) on gutters refers to the dark, unappealing streaks or lines that often form vertically on the surface of gutters in a stripe-like pattern. These streaks are formed through electrostatic bonding and are usually a combination of dirt, mold, algae, and other organic matter. They typically appear on the front-facing side of gutters and can be quite noticeable, diminishing the overall appearance of your home.

Tiger striping is not only a cosmetic concern but can also indicate that your gutters are not functioning as well as they should. These streaks can obstruct water flow and may lead to water pooling or overflowing in certain areas, which can cause damage to your home's foundation, basement, or landscaping.

Removing tiger striping is typically done as part of a comprehensive gutter cleaning process. This process utilizes soft washing techniques to ensure that the streaks are thoroughly cleaned without damaging the gutters or the surrounding areas. Preventing the reoccurrence of tiger striping involves maintaining clean gutters and protecting them with gutter guards.

Is soft washing safe for gutters?

Yes, soft washing is a safe and effective method for cleaning gutters. Soft washing uses low water pressure and eco-friendly cleaning solutions to remove dirt, grime, stains, and organic matter, making it gentle on your gutters. This method is safer than traditional pressure washing, which uses high water pressure that can potentially damage gutters, cause dents, or loosen gutter attachments.

Soft washing doesn't just clean gutters. It also helps prevent the growth of mold, algae, and other organic contaminants that can clog your gutters and lead to water damage. This gutter cleaning method is a suitable and recommended technique for maintaining the appearance and functionality of your gutters without risking harm to them or the surrounding areas.

How often should I have my gutters soft washed?

The suggested frequency for soft washing your gutters depends on various factors, including your location, the surrounding environment, and the type of trees near your home. In general, it's recommended to have your gutters cleaned at least once a year.

Ultimately, it's a good idea to consult a professional and have them assess the specific needs of your gutters and determine the appropriate frequency for soft washing. Regular soft washing helps maintain the integrity of your gutters, preventing clogs, water damage, and costly repairs.

How can I prevent clogged gutters?

Regularly removing leaves, twigs, and other debris from gutter channels helps prevent clogged gutters. Another option is to install high-quality gutter guards, such as our RainDrop® Gutter Guards.

Gutter guards act as a barrier, preventing debris from entering the gutters in the first place. This, coupled with regular soft washing to keep gutters clean, can effectively prevent clogs and ensure that your gutters operate smoothly.

FAQs about gutter guards

What are gutter guards?

Gutter guards, also known as gutter covers or gutter screens, enclose your gutters to prevent debris such as leaves, twigs, and pine needles from entering and clogging your gutters. By keeping out unwanted debris, rainwater can flow through the gutter freely.

There are several types of gutter guards, including gutter screens, gutter covers, and gutter filters. However, their primary function is the same: to act as a barrier and maintain clean, free-flowing gutters. Installing gutter guards reduces the need for frequent gutter cleaning and minimizes the risk of water damage to your home's roof, siding, foundation, and landscaping.

Adding gutter guards to your gutter system can save you time and money on gutter maintenance while ensuring your gutters remain functional and efficient, regardless of heavy rainfall or falling leaves.

Why install gutter guards?

Gutter guards act as a protective barrier, keeping out unwanted debris so rainwater can flow freely through the gutter channels. Without gutter guards, your gutters are vulnerable to clogs caused by a build-up of leaves, pine needles, twigs, and other materials. Blockages put your property at risk for costly water-related damage. By installing gutter guards, you can protect your property from the following damage and more.

  • Damaged Roofing & Siding: Gutter guards prevent clogs that impact how water is diverted away from your property and protect your roof and siding from damage.
  • Foundation & Basement Flooding: Clogged gutters can cause water to pool around your basement and foundation, exposing it to thousands of gallons of water during every rainfall.
  • Pest & Insect Infestations: Stagnant water, leaves, and twigs create an ideal environment for insects and other pests. Self-cleaning gutter guards prevent debris from building up, keeping insects away and creating a safer, more enjoyable environment for your family.
  • Erosion: Gutter guards prevent pooling water that can damage plants, grass, and your foundation.
Can I install gutter guards myself?

Installing gutter guards can be dangerous for homeowners without the right experience or equipment. Improper installation can cause gaps, sagging, and other issues that put the performance and lifespan of your gutters at risk.

The best way to ensure your gutter guards work properly and provide long-lasting protection is with professional gutter guard installation. Gutter specialists are trained in safety procedures and have the necessary tools to safely and correctly install gutter guards.
