Flaking paint

Had to turn down a big job today as the paint work was that old and flakey the WFP method just wasn't working, throwing bits of paint work all over the window, was not good! Anyone else had any similar experiences? I was gutted as it was a nice little earner and he wanted it doing monthly too.

Can be a ***htmare trading them sometimes. Yer go to squeegee it and bits of paint get stuck underneath and leaves lines. Takes forever.

I was thinking about it but it would take forever, I just don't have the patience lol. It included a conservatory roof clean too which was all glass, the flaking paint would have just ruined it. I can't swap the brushes over on the SLX which is a tad frustrating too.

I have had a few and they are quiet nice jobs so i have tried to keep them after the couple of cleans the flaky paint is a lot less i would give them a good scrub on a low pressure the turn it up to wash the paint off
