Many customers report that GutterBrush reduces or prevents previous problems with ice build-up.
Exposed black bristles absorb sunlight warmth promoting quicker melting.
Also, just as leaves clog gutters, in a similar way, so does snow, slush, and ice.
The presence of GutterBrush keeps the flow channel open preventing slush, snow and ice from moving down the gutter, densifying, and clogging the downspout.
Notice in the photo how snow rests on top of the brush but 3/4 of gutter remains functional for water flow.
Without GutterBrush, snow, slush and ice build up creating a solid heavy mass that inhibits drainage; so when small amounts of daily melting occurs, the condition actually worsens and the ice grows larger. With GutterBrush, the flow channel stays open so incremental melting can drain and the condition naturally improves day-by-day
