Fascias and soffits are tricky areas, but they make a HUGE difference in the appearance of your home. If they are dirty and covered in black streaks, they truly stick out in a negative way.
Cleaning these areas requires a huge learning curve. Many companies use the same mix (soft-wash solutions) as they do for the rest of homes. However, the bleach-based mixes don’t have the degreasers needed to remove these streaks. At The Clear Difference, we have undergone insane amounts of trial and error to find the perfect mix and technique to make exterior gutters, fascias, and soffits shine!
- Estimated Time: Roughly 2 hours for an average home
- Estimated Manpower: 1-2 professionally dressed men
- Method: Long poles with brushes dipped in solution + rinsing off + repeating if necessary
What to Expect When You Hire The Clear Difference
Unlike many of our other services, only one person is really needed for our gutter brightening jobs. Depending on the size of the job, there may be two men to make the job go by faster. Cleaning the fascias and soffits is tedious and often tiring work. Instead of using dangerous ladders, we instead use long poles and brushes from the ground.
We will simply dip our brushes into buckets of our solution. We brush the solution over the exterior gutters, fascias, and soffits, allowing the solution to dwell and lift the streaks. Then, we simply rinse with water and repeat if necessary. Depending on the height of the gutters, we end up with a wild shoulder work-out!
Something to Consider
After we complete our gutter brightening service, some solution and water will have gotten on your windows more than likely, leaving very obvious streaks. At a minimum, we will always hose down the windows to get rid of the obvious streaks from the solution. However, the hose water will still leave slight streaks, as there is calcium and ions in the water.
As a result, we always recommend including our professional window cleaning service with our gutter brightening service. Not mandatory by any means, but it will make a big difference!
