    I've got several houses with these Juliene style balconies on them with either glass or iron decorative safety barriers and have given in attempting to use the pole system on them as I can't get a method that doesn't leave the spotting or an outright mess. Do you guys just grab a ladder or is there a "way" of doing them from the ground.

    Example below.

    I got five with these, four the brush fits through the bars on an angle. So I scrub and rinse top then in through the bars for bottoms. It is a pain as if it's a big set of doors you have to wiggle the brush in twice. Not had any complaints so must be OK. Last one the bars are so close together it's an impossible job, wfp or Trad. Told her it can only be done from inside.

    Depending on the amount of windows, some wfp other times when it's few I trad them . These I would definitely wfp.

    The only method I use is to not do them.

    I'm wfp so either the brush fits thru or it doesn't.

    Luckily these are rare round here

    Fair one, I've got at least 8-10 houses with them and I find it way quicker to go up and do them traditionally. Far less faff.

    I've only got one house with these on a trendy street. The old woman that lives there is always in so I just go in and open the doors so I can trad from the inside.
