Gutter cleaning is essential to protect your home from water damage. Clogged gutters lead to overflows that can affect both your roof and foundation.

Gutter Cleaning Essentials: How Soft Washing Protects Your Home's Drainage

Here’s how softwashing delivers the best gutter cleaning results:

  • How softwashing works. Softwashing is a technique used in a variety of delicate applications. It’s the perfect choice for cleaning gutters, using low-pressure water instead of the high-pressure stream of a pressure washer. It delivers incredible results because its specialized cleaning agents remove all dirt and buildup without damaging surfaces.
  • Soft washing prevents damage to your gutters. Many gutters are made of polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. That’s why you may often hear them called vinyl gutters. While moisture-resistant and durable, this material can only withstand so much impact. You risk bending or even blasting a hole right through PVC gutters when you clean them with a pressure washer. Soft washing doesn’t pose this risk because its low-pressure stream lets the cleaning agents do the heavy lifting.
  • It also stops mold, algae, and other growth. When gutters contain sitting water and piles of leaves and other organic materials, they create conditions that are very favorable to the growth of mold and algae. If these undesirable organisms start to spread, you could find yourself dealing with an infestation on your roof. Fortunately, the cleaning agent used in soft washing can prevent this from happening.
