    image.jpg Just literally got home from doing one, I pressure them now, and then brush them with pure and rinse after... Never bother with chemicals, I like to keep things simple and scrub and rinse, but if possible i pressure wash to steer with to get the worst off, it also gets the whites looking great..

    Of course don't pressure wash if they get leaks, or it's an old conservatory, I just discuss options with the customer first..

    Thats does look good Jake. I just use an old brush, the tried and tested method. Have you had any problems with many leaks etc. the white looks great.

    Never had a leak yet, but I always tell the custy that it is a possibility, and at the first sign of one I would stop... I use low pressure and don't fire it up into the sills and seals...

    I always ask there permission to use the pressure washer - it just seems to do the best job!

    And I'm lazy and wanna get them done quick :cool:

    F*** seals by pressure washing most conservatories, if they don't leak they soon will do if you blast the **** out of them! Can also put light scratching and haze effects on Upvc. Soft wash is the best method and far more customer friendly in my experience.

    Do you people not realise you can adjust the pressure on pressure washers? For the 100th time all you do is use low pressure! Maaaaannnnnn!!! Your about the 3rd person who's said that, I've done 7 conny roof jobs with a PW and never had a problem at all, just use LOW PRESSURE!!!!!!!

    Used to do them with a pressure washer myself, did maybe 20? I don't know though, I just WFP them with pure, no need for pressure washer.

    Sometimes wfp them, but if there really bad then I've found the pressure washer makes light work of them, also I find the pressure washer amazing for the crown bits at the top or any decoration bits, where the brush can't get in to...
