    How long would it take you water fed pole guys to clean 5 windows? Only small about 3ft wide by 4ft high???

    Because some people think it's bull that 2 wfp guys using 2 vans can't clean 78 flats all next to each other in less than a day!

    Each van only moved 3 times as 100m hose reached a lot of the site!

    Depends on how dirty they are and if the upvc is dirty too... If it's straight forward 5 windows I would say 3/4 minutes.

    They are more or less the basic maintenance clean, except some of the downstairs one near the grass and mud.

    I agree, around 1 minute a window if its just a maintenance clean. 78 flats 5 windows each is 390 windows so 2 men should take 3- 3 1/2 hours if all goes smoothly. I wouldn't want a solid 3 1/2 hours on the glass without a break though, hard work and my body would know it on the evening. Great work if you can get it, I'm envious! I used to clean a large block of flats trad a few years ago, about 40 flats 5 windows each. It took me 7 hours to do, I wish I'd been wfp back then as it would have been so much easier.
