    Best Gutter Cleaner is it Gutter Zap?

    What do you think is the best overall gutter cleaner?

    And Why?

    I am the best gutter cleaner..........oh, wait........you said "what".....nevermind.


    I like Gutter Zap, but mostly because that's pretty much all I have ever tried. If it's not broke, don't fix it, right?

    All Brite

    I get it from Sunbrite. It is safe, and inexpensive. I apply to gutters at full strength with a sponge mop on a extention handle.

    Take a look, and give Tracy a call.

    I use Krud Kutter from HD. At about $5/gal, it can't be beat. I apply with a brush/pole - very little rubbing needed, except sometimes on the underside of the gutter. As you brush this on, you can see the black streaks disappear. It also leaves the gutters shiny and smooth.

    John, do you apply it straight or diluted? Thanks.

    I brush my gutters all the time, but I have read, that you should not brush gutters... What is your guys opinion on this?

    Why would someone say this also?

    Chris, I use it full strength. One gallon is usually enough to clean the gutters on 4 -5 houses...depending on how many gutters there are.

    As to brushing, I can understand why you would not want to brush too much...many times the finish is, shall we say, "delicate". If you are too aggressive with the brush, it may come off. With the Krud Kutter, there is usually no need to scrub, merely apply with the brush.

    Tested out KK today. Worked pretty good!

    Applied with brush and sprayed off with garden hose.

    Gutters look shiney and new except like Jon said under the

    gutter. However, I probably would have seen even better results

    if rinse was by PW vs. Garden Hose.


    Anybody else tried this stuff and compared to Gutter Zap or Steve

    Rowlett's stuff?

    This is what I like about Steve's stuff. I apply house wash to two sides of the house with x jet, I then apply his gutter cleaner with x jet. As soon as it is applied, I start to rinse, starting with the gutters. No brushing, almost makes perfect dwell time for house wash, and it saves me a lot of time. I don't bother with brushes unless there are unusual circumstances.

    All Brite

    Sun Brite Supply's cleaner for gutters is called All Brite. It can also be used as a house wash, or mild degreaser, good on awnings, light concrete cleaning..... It is a time saver when washing houses because you can use it as the house wash diluted, and use the concentrate at the same time to do the gutters and wash everything at the same time. Works well on the windows, too. Just wanted to let you know the name of the chem.
