    I keep the frames and sills clean every time.

    pretend there your windows and do them how you`d like them done.

    I still do my first cleans off ladders if ness, I like to solvent clean all the sills etc...

    frames wont cause you any trouble, but vents, possibly alloy frames may, best thing to do if unsure is hang around to see the results.

    You`ll know your windows better than anyone so do what you think is best. Keep the customer happy and your happy too.

    I know it wont make you money hanging around, but you can make up for that the next clean when your round the house in no time at all.

    If you go over the vents how do you stop the dirty water running out after and staining the windows

    You could do vents first on all windows then go round and do windows this way they should have stopped dripping so much or rinse loads. Best option leave the vents Lol they are a nightmare. To be honest I always did them but you have to do them every time to ensure they stay clean and you don't get dirt running from them.
