    Sweet damo, does it matter if it goes on to the windows? Do I have to buy a pump spray with wand to spray it over the roof ,just frames or glass as well?

    I use a weak mix on windows and frames. Don't get it on self cleaning glass.

    You can use a wand I do. Or even the spray bottles they sell

    Smurf going slightly off topic, I have a house to clean next month, I do trad, but for those windows above the conny roof I am going to use a water fed pole.

    Now as the house is very very similar to your pic, even has same conny!!

    Can you tell me best way to clean those top windows, do you use ladders to get higher/better access to those windows?

    That one has about 2m flat roof built on the back so a trad guy could gain access from that. Myself I can get to the windows from the ground but like you say could use a ladder and a pole if you wanted as may find it might be easier to do. :Image9:

    For the consevatory roof deep clean on that one I used a 12 rung ladder with a microlite stand-off that rested on the plastic roof. Then wfp & ubik to clean all the frames, pointy bits and roof panels.

    Gully & guttering was also vacuumed out too also had access next door to get to their side as would have been next to imposible to clean properly from the front.
