    Had my first conservatory job today, absolutley filthy. The panels ontop were green and the upvc was really bad too.

    Using a wfp system how would be the best way to go about completing this job?

    I usually use a extendable car wash brush with lots of soapy water on it. For the UPvc trim, use a cheap kitchen cleaner with bleach in it (Tescos Daisy stuff works well). Then after you have scrubbed the roof, either use your WFP system or use an applicator and squeegee on an extendable pole system.

    Did one a few weeks ago using the traditional system (as I am not quite on WFP yet) and it came up pristine. It hadn't been cleaned for 7 years
     
  3. Regular cleaning of conservatories greatly reduces the need for repairs and maintenance .Conservatory roofs should be cleaned with warm water and a specialised mild detergent to remove grime and algae. The glass should be cleaned with a streak-free window cleaner. This will be the most time-consuming part of your job, but it is very important in order to keep your conservatory looking good.
     
  4. i disagree with sharper cleaning, the glass should be cleaned as normal either with apllicator/squeegee or a wfp system will take half the time and have a better result than using window cleaner. As for an algae covered roof hot soapy water and a stiff brush then rinse with a garden hose this way is far more effective and quicker than trying to clean with a wfp, i use cif on the upvc parts

    col we are about to get into upve part of things for the winter but ive heard that cif can scratch it/?? how do u use it? cheers
     
  6. i just put a little on a normal duster, gently scrub the upvc and wipe it off. once i've done that i hose it down. I've never had any issues with scratching so far so touch wood.........

    Bathroom cleaner cif is the one to use check it is non scratch as some of the supermarket own brands could cause scratches.If the pvc is heavy soiled try loosening it with a soft brush and then soak with warm water and squirt some cif onto a brush/cloth and work it in,leave for about 10-15 minutes (continue doing other windows) and go back and scrub and rinse. comes up a treat. non scratch scourer can help speed things up.
