    Hi everyone,

    I've been asked to clean two windows, which are above a cobservatory and impossible to reach due to design.

    I was thinking of jetting the pure water over the windows as they are dirty it will have to make an impact over time.

    Any suggestions as to how I can do this with my brush that has pencil jets

    For example use just one jet?

    The water has to travel quite a distance, any suggestions would be appreciated

    Thanks

    I'm a bit confused. Did you mean to post this in the pressure washing forum?

    Spraying the window with pure water isn't going to achieve much. If anything, it will make the dirt on the glass run and look even worse than it already does.

    Is there no way you can reach the window by putting a ladder against the side of the conservatory?

    The design of the conservatory is strange, no way of putting a ladder up.

    Can it not be cleaned from the inside?

    Sometimes to just have to admit defeat. Tell them it can't be done by conventional methods, and recommend that they get a window that will allow cleaning from the inside.
