    Hi I have one shop which has the above frames and when I do them the top ones seem to be left with marks , and the big ones below seem to leave a small mark maybe a few inches below the top . So I have to do them again . None of my other windows have this problem but they are all wooden frames, help any suggestions as to why this is happening .
    Cheers

    To be honest I can't see what aluminium frames has to do with it. I do a few of them & don't seem to have a problem with them. Sorry cant help.

    I had a first clean on a massive aluminium framed staircase on Friday. The place hadn't been cleaned in years! I knew it would leach, but impossible to use ladders and trad it. The cr@p just kept on coming out of the seals and there was no way I could avoid getting water on the frames. I explained to them and they were ok with it. I wasn't so happy as it didn't come up as good as I wanted. Every time it dried you could see the dirty water on the glass, so I would rinse that only for that water to get onto the frame below. Four big frames on top of each other and four side by side. I must've gone over it four times at least.

    Aluminium patio doors are a mare too. I don't go near the frames on them.
