DIY Gutter Maintenance with Liquid Rubber: A Simple Guide for Aussie Homeowners

When it comes to maintaining your home, sorting out the gutters is often a job that gets brushed aside. But here in Australia, where the weather can go from one extreme to another, ensuring your gutters are in top-notch condition is crucial.

That's where our "Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant" comes in! It's a game-changer, and we're here to give you a straightforward guide on how to use it. 

Step 1: Prep Like a Pro Before you start, clear out your gutters. They need to be clean and dry with no leaves, debris, or dirt. This step is essential because our Liquid Rubber sticks best to surfaces that are clean and dry.

Step 2: Smart Masking. We know you're not planning to get our sealant everywhere, so use painter's tape to cover areas you don't want it to touch.

Step 3: Slap On the Coating Now, the fun part! Apply a generous layer of our Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant to your gutters. Wait for it to dry to the touch (a bit tacky is alright), then slap on another thick layer. This stuff is the barrier between your home and unwanted leaks!

Step 4: The Clean-Up Pull up the painter's tape while the coating is still wet to keep things neat. If you end up with some spills, no drama — just clean it up quickly with soap and water. For dried spills, you'll need to scrape off what you can and then give it a good scrub with mineral spirits.

Got some on your skin? Wash it off quickly, or use some oil to massage it before washing if it's dried up. If your skin's giving you grief, don't muck about — seek medical advice.

Pro Tips:

  • Keep out of the blistering Aussie sun when you're applying the sealant. Too hot, and the application won't be as smooth.
  • Check the weather! Don't apply if there's rain or heavy dew on the horizon. We love a good downpour, but not when we're sealing gutters.

There you have it! With Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant, maintaining your gutters is a breeze. A bit of effort now saves a heap of trouble later on, especially with our unpredictable Aussie weather. Happy sealing!
