    Hi All, I was asked to quote for my first internal clean today, thats the good news but the great news is its a fish and chip shop :thumbs:. Now ive been WFP cleaning for around a year now and have never carried out an internal clean before, obviously I've cleaned my own windows using the obligatory window cleaning spray and the wife's favourite kitchen tissue (me bad ;) ) but please can I have some advise on what is the best equipment and products to use also any tricks of the trade you may like to share.

    Thanks in advance Greener.

    do a runner...:D

    yeh not a fan of insides as they are greasy as against dirty outside...

    i use boab, bucket on a belt and so just blade em spraying chems on like full strength window cleaning spray first and then rub that in with my applicator before blading off..

    not forgetting to shadow my blade with my applicator to catch the drips...

    dont forget a big blade applicator helps on them big windows..

    any finger prints kiss marks etc I clean with my sill cloth scrim after they have been sprayed and then spray the area again before I blade...

    I dare you not to get some chips whilst there....:whistle:

    I actually just use any of the window sprays you can get .but i do water them down at least fifty fifty as if you use them neat it tends to be a patchy result...

    cant say I have used em much for insides as I always blade em these days..

    generally if I spot finger marks or a greasy kitchen window that will get blasted with full strenght and maybe taken off with a bone dry scrim but then...I do em again...:D


    I am struggling to get outsides clean in this sun at the mo let alone insides...and we now enter the fast dry up so you cant just leave the detailing for long...

    Chip shop windows get very greasy so you need a good detergent and to do the job quick enough to make money you need to purchase a good blade and applicator , easy size for learning is around 14 inch , practice at home or watch some YouTube video to pick up hints

    Internals are a pain in the butt. I avoid them like I avoid an ugly drunk girl at a wedding !!
    It's worse in someone's house as you have to avoid dirty foot prints, ornaments and spilling dirty water on lovely cream carpets. You end up moving furniture and **** of window seals. Kitchens are a nightmare because you have work surfaces in front of windows to overcome. I only do them for a few customers and the rest, if they ask, I say my insurance will not cover me. If your going to do them, charge double the outside price.
