    Goty first pole and brush today
    Only cheap bayersan 30ft and brush but was free off a mate who bought it and then found a good deal on a decent pole so only used it a couple of times..oh well.better than a banana i suppose
    Did a fascia clean with it and came up great although i reckon i need a better suited brush for fascias

    Yeah that sucks, carry a rag with you and wipe the bad ones afterwards, you will find after a couple of cleans, especially if you give it a good clean first time it clears up and water comes out the bottom clear.

    I reckon about a month till i have everything but i know that if any first cleans in the meantime have a tap i will be doing them with this and then squeegee the glass after
    Reckon it will be a lot quicker than scrubbing dirty frames by hand....of course i will have to charge extra for this service or it will be a normal quick wipe with a cloth

    I have a sill brush, so what I do is angle the brush so the edge of it slips underneath the window if that makes sense and give it a good scrubbing forst clean.

    What's the difference with brushes?
    Do you use sill brush for the glass too?

    What I say if the frames are really bad is that they will be a work in progress and will be totally clean after a couple of cleans, either that or pay me extra and I will get them perfect first time.

    I also mention that if the frames are really bad you "might" get a few dirty drips after I have gone, every single customer has been happy with this, they aren't stupid they know their windows and frames are filthy.
