    Yes I tend to give front doors a wipe over on a regular clean as that is the first thing they notice.
    However If restoration is required then I would charge extra as you do but all depends how I'm feeling on the day as customers love little extras to keep them sweet. On the other hand some might take advantage and expected it to look like new when it hasn't been done for years. That is one of the reasons why I charge extra for one-off/first cleans.

    You have to be very careful using a wfp on doors as some let water in. The last thing you want is a customer noticing they have a wet expensive carpet/flooring the other side of the door. You will also find that small bits of dirt will remain on the plastic too so just best to use a damp microfiber cloth for the frames and clean the glass with pure water very sparingly or trad it instead.
