Climates vary considerably depending on where you live. In some areas, mildew may be a problem. It appears as black spots on the surface dirt and is usually detected first on the undersides of your rain gutters. For removal, prepare the solution below and apply as outlined above.
1/3 cup detergent (Tide for example)
2/3 cup Trisodium Phosphate TSP
1 quart 5% Sodium Hypochlorate solution
(Clorox for example)
3 quarts water
GUTTER CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS:
The following cleaning instructions should be performed at least once a year.
For surface soil and stains, such as those resulting from industrial fallout, tree sap, insecticides, or chimney fumes, use ordinary nonabrasive household detergent.
The solution should be applied to the soiled surface by means of a soft rag, sponge or soft bristle brush with a gentle rubbing action. Do not rub vigorously so as to create glossy areas over the satin finish. Soft bristle brushes equipped with long extension handles may be used to reach some of the higher areas.
It is important that immediately following all washing operations, the entire surface be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water from a garden hose.
Stubborn stains may be removed by using a heavy-duty cleaner such as "Fantastik." Heavy soil deposits may not be removable in one application and may require repeated cleaning over some length of time. Do not use cleaners containing abrasive particles, ammonia, solvents or paint removers. These materials may soften or remove the finish.
CAUTION: GREATER CONCENTRATIONS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE FINISH.
