    Got a roof and some gutters to clean on a bungalow on one of my pressure cleaning jobs. A few questions...

    Is it safe to put UBIK in an IK-9 Pressure Sprayer?

    I'm thinking about buying a Vikan waterfed wash brush for the gutters, fascias, soffits and garage doors etc. Namely these...

    Vikan Water-Fed High / Low (Hi/Lo) Car Vehicle Wash Brush Head Soft 280mm
    Vikan Extending Pole
    Vikan Gardena/Hozelock QR Adaptor

    I think those will cost around £70

    Will soft bristles be OK or would a stiff head be better?

    It's a huge bunglow and double garage and the whole place is turning green. I figure this brush + UBIK and sprayer will do the job. Is this a wise move or are there better tools for the job?

    I need some advice on the roof too but I'm waiting on a photograph to show you lot...

    What is UBIK ? , Green to me on any job means algae, so i would be thinking as far as the structure of the house goes anyways .... softwashing with a SH / detergent mix of some kind?.

    Ubik 2000 is a goto cleaner for many on here.
    Vikan brushes are well heavy.
    I use a Gardiners Stiff Sill brush for all my gutter and conny roof cleans.
