    Morning, went to look at this yesterday. There 30 years old never been cleaned, there really bad. They want them cleaning inside and out. I have a figure in mind just wanted to see what anyone else though. I looked at something similar last year but I wasn't in a position to even think about it. But now I could do it. Thanks in advance for any help.

    hello
    I have experience of quoting commercial work. That is a very unique job for sure. It's always hard to tell from pictures but you have done a great job of including a lot of varied pics.
    I would suggest 4-5 days labour 1 man pure water reach and wash system for the inside providing the excess water can be dealt with and consult a hire company about renting some plant machinery that can get you access across the top. You would get the best finish by using pure water rather then any chemicals in my opinion. Thanks

    I reckon you want at least a tenner per greenhouse:D

    Seriously though i have no idea where to start
    How long do you think it would take?

    Next question: how are you going to reach reach the centre glass of the middle greenhouse?

    I get how a cherry picker will move round all x3 of them but not how you'll be able to reach the 'inner glass' , particularly on the middle greenhouse.

    There is equipment available to hire that can take you across to get to that middle bit. Something like a telescopic boom with a cradle. It would be a slow and delicate process

    Exactly - and they don't come cheap. I don't think a cherry picker would be sufficient for that but it's difficult to be certain from photos - hence the questions
