    Hi all,

    I'm fairly new to this and putting a quote in for a clean on a 3rd floor flat with glass balcony. There's french doors up there which is all fairly simple though not sure the best way to tackle the outside of the balcony. Any suggestions on how to safely go about cleaning them? Thanks in advance FullSizeRender-1.jpg FullSizeRender.jpg

    This thread is in 'traditional'. Are you sure you don't want to WFP it?

    I would say that WFP is definitely the best and safest way to clean the outside of that balcony as you will struggle to squeegee them properly from the balcony due to the metal clamps holding the glass, not to mention health and safety while reaching over to clean them.
