    Ay up tradders. I've got a clean coming up where builders have been working for a while (interior/exterior). I'm expecting paint splatter, caulk, silicone, plaster etc. So i'll be using a fresh scraper blade, sticky stuff remover, silicone remover, degreaser. Anything else I should be mindfull of?

    Think you have it all covered there tolish. Just make sure you price appropriately as builders cleans can take some time.

    Oh!, just a thought.....would it be worth getting one of those ettore porcupine applicator sleeves. It sounds like they really cut through the gunge.
