These unsightly black streaks on your gutter, commonly referred to as “tiger stripes”, can draw attention away from your freshly cleaned siding and roof. Tiger striping occurs as pollen, grime and pollutants collect in your gutter and mix with rain and moisture in the air. Over time, the dirty water collects and begins to drip over the edge of your gutter, leaving behind these tiger-like streaks in its path. Tiger striping may be more problematic in certain areas depending on what elements surround your home and roofline, such as large sap-producing trees or chimney smoke.
Luckily, this a relatively simple problem to fix. Regular gutter maintenance and brightening can help to rid these stains and keep your house looking cleaner longer.
In addition to the visual component, clearing the debris from your gutters will help protect the functionality of your roof system by allowing the water to drain properly. Not only does this prevent your gutters from bending or sagging from the weight, but can eliminate the threat of mold and mildew growth on your roof along the edges. Gutter washing also eradicates the unsightly contaminants that embed into the small crevices of the gutters, such as along the lip and at the joints of the structure.
