    If so did you wagtail it?

    Glass roof, not plastic

    It depends how many awkward angles there are and how dirty it is.

    The last time I cleaned the inside of a conservatory roof, it was a huge one and part of a restaurant.

    I just used the correct size applicator + squeegee and poled it.

    suggest you get one of these short tele poles by Anza [ sold in BnQ } These are a perfect fit for a wagtail and the exact correct length for inside conservatories anza 001.jpg anza 002.jpg

    Get an unger 0° swiveloc so you can squeegee any angle on a pole
    Cover the floor where you are working with some towels and jobs a good un
    Just be carefull dripping dirty water on porous painted walls as it stains

    I do a few, try and get in and out every time if I can. I get up there cos I always do frames as well (magic sponge best for that), trad it when I can OR karcher window vac if too much electrical stuff etc or just feel like it. I always cover everything but better safe than sorry.

    Yep people knock the karcher I used to but absolutely great bit of kit but only for this job anything else they're ****.

    how i do inside roofs is i usually have 2 of my lads paired up. one is soaping up about 2 roof panels at a go with a 14 inch scrubber ,the other lad follows quickly behind with a squeezed out 14 inch scrubber with a clean scrim draped over it .

    Karcher vac ain't bad, but the rubber seems to hold alot more dirt more than a normal squeegee as it has a doubled rubber. Be prepared to buff a fair bit afterwards as due to the heft of the machine its not always easy to get to the edges of the glass, but it does keep the area dry. I also have the vikan easy shine kit, which is ok, but stuggles a little if the windows are filthy, get alot of pads, the thicker unger indoor pad is better for that. The thin vikan microfibre cloths that come with the kit are awesome though and bring up a real shine! If its got a tiled floor and you can trad it I reckon that might be quicker I reckon, if its carpeted or not too filthy then karcher/vikan have worked fine for me, they did struggle on a few dirty veluxs though, but they were very high up so it was difficult to get enough pressure to scrub them at that height.
