Do you need to clean your guttering? Soffits and gutters can be some of the most difficult areas of your home to keep clean, debris can build up over the months causing blockages.
However, using a Turtle Wax pressure washer makes it easy to keep these hard-to-reach places looking great in no time at all.
Follow our step-by-step instructions on how to clean your guttering here:-
- To clean the inside of your gutter, you may be tempted to climb a ladder. Don’t! There is a much safer and easier way to clean inside your gutters that doesn’t require climbing a ladder. You should avoid using a pressure washer from a ladder if at all possible.
- Instead, use a pressure washer gutter cleaner. These 90 degree curved nozzle attachments allow you to hold your wand up and spray directly into the gutters while keeping your feet planted securely on the ground.
- Start near a downpipe and spray away from it. Angle your wand so the stream of water points away from the downpipe, and progress down the length of the gutter. The force of the water should propel debris out of the gutter.
- Try not to force too much debris into your downpipes. If your gutters have a lot of debris, you may want to clean some out by hand first to avoid clogging your downspouts.
- Stains left from debris can be hard to get rid of but before you start cleaning the guttering, rinse the guttering with clean water, this will assist in letting the detergent work better.
- Dilute your detergent accordingly with fresh water and fill up the detergent bottle on the pressure washer.
When using the pressure washer to clean the guttering aim the water jet in front of you so that the detergent and spray will blow away from you. Allow the detergent to work for about 5 minutes.
- As your detergent works switch your detergent tank to “Off,” aim the nozzle away from yourself and squeeze the trigger to flush out any remaining detergent.
- Begin from the same spot you began when applying detergent, and work in the same direction. Spray evenly along your soffits and gutters to remove all of the detergent, dirt, and stains. Some spots may be more stubborn, so take a little more time spraying those areas to ensure an even clean.
