San Antonio gutter brush is among the products that are designed to keep pine needles, leaves, and debris from clogging gutters. When you don’t have a system in place to keep debris, leaves, and pine needles out of your gutters, your gutters will be clogged and rainwater will eventually spill over their sides. This can lead to serious water damage on the landscaping, basement, siding and the foundation of your building.
How Gutter Brush Works
Gutter brush looks like a gigantic caterpillar or pipe cleaner. It has a length of 18 or 36 inches and a width or height of 4.5 inches. Gutter brush has polypropylene bristles cover that is twisted around galvanized steel cylinder. Usually, gutter brushes come in packages of dozen pieces to ensure their easy placement throughout the guttering system of a building.
The idea behind gutter brush is very simple. Every gutter brush has a size that makes placing it inside a standard gutter that measures 5 inches easy. No fasteners or screws are required to place gutter brushes in gutters. The bristles of gutter brushes repel pine needles and leaves while allowing rainwater to flow freely around gutter brushes as well as throughout the gutters and eventually into the downspouts.
