    All my frames get cleaned when they need it. Some it's every time. Those that stay pretty good get a clean but when they need it. I don't let any frames get bad.

    I clean the whole lot everytime.
    Clean the frames and glass in one go and then rinse.

    The truth of it is it's impossible for me to do just glass, not how I'm programmed, if the customer said 'I'll pay an extra £10 if you leave the frames alone' I wouldn't get the extra £10, just cant get my head round not doing frames as the truth of the matter is when all your frames are done regular then the whole job takes no longer what so ever, probably faster, if just doing glass you have to 'avoid' the frames that would take time.

    Depends on frames. If the paint is coming off, I don't touch them.

    Yep agree. If the frames still look clean then I will wait until next time. The sills get done every time though:thumbsup:

    frames every time otherwise it's half a job. Dosnt matter how mutch shine is on the glass. If the frames are dirty it don't look right.
