    Hi Guys

    Just been asked to do my first conservatory. They want all inside windows done and inside roof done.

    Im just finding it a bit daunting. How is best to go about cleaning the inside of the roof?

    I avoid cleaning inside conservatory roof at all cost.

    I say get a wagtail with a flipper on the end of small pole or use a step ladder and reach with you squeegees

    Good luck

    Step ladders and use as little water as you can get away with. You may need to move the furniture out too, or at least sheet it up first, Dexter style :hehehe:

    I use a squeegee on a pole preferably a 0° or wagtail
    You have to be carefull though as dirty water that drips on to porous painted walls stains as I learnt the hard way

    I use a microfibre mop. Spray a very small amount of glynn window cleaner on it & use mop to clean it & flip mop over to buff it. Painstaking tho & never do them when its sunny

    I cleaned my first internal glass roof last week,and used step ladder and squeegee.
    Wish I had an extension pole,as you do get neck ake.
    Thankfully the lady was just moving in so no furniture in the way.
    You could go to screw fix and by your self a hop up,they come in two heights depending on how vertically challenged you are.
    Good luck.

    You'll still neck ache with a pole and more dirty water drips flying everywhere.

    I use a damp scrim to clean them and a dry one to dry them off, and work on small areas at a time. I take a tall step ladder, some of those roofs are quite high on the large conservatorys

    I hate stepladders
    Dodgy things they are

    Pole and wagtail flipper is good

    Have toyed with the idea of using one of these microfibre floor mops with the swivel head and changeable microfibre pads
