    Hi! All.. Was after abit of advice. I was doing a cafe inside and out today and noticed that where the shop was hot inside. Ovens, Heating etc and being about 3 degrees outside l was getting a condensation trail on the window and you could see where my squeegee had been. I've checked my tools and everything seems fine. I'm not doing anything different to the norm. I wondered if anyone comes across this and is there a way to deal with it. No WFP comments please. lol

    Once the condensation goes so will the marks
    Nothing to worry about
    I had it the other week doing the insides on a commercial job
    Freezing outside and was in an enclosed reception area (between outer doors and inner doors)
    Once done and walk away you can guarantee it will have evaporated off and be fine

    Exactly as above. I've had them last 3 days & they disappear

    Those "marks" are there the whole time also in summer you just cant see them cause they evaporate quickly

    My thoughts exactly lads.. It's just that the managers wife text me saying that her husband thought that the Windows still looked dirty and he couldn't understand it as he see me cleaning. I mentioned what's written above in a text before I see your posts. I explained it in the nicest possible way about the condensation heat etc. But. it's jarred me off abit as I have to go back and put something right that ain't wrong lol. Been doing the job five years and only ever had one complaint of a person who l later found out still owed her gardener a mint lol...

    Tell him nothings wrong and dont go back? Easy, your the proffesional you know what your talking about, your not saying how he should cook right, he would be insulted by that like you are when he tells you the job aint good enough, when nothing is wrong.

    So long as your technique is good it will dry fine. Don't mess about trying to buff it or anything as you'll be there all day.

    Yes and thats normal, try mop and squeegee your mirros in the bathroom before taking a warm bath, the mirror come up clean w no trails, then take a warm shower so the room is steaming, you will now see the triallines.
