    Hey guys

    As there are quite a few newbs lately and me aswell only a few months in, there is probably alot of us wondering if we clean to slowly.

    I'm talking wfp maintanance cleans.

    Is there anyone experienced willing to post up a video of them carrying out a maintanance clean on say, a 3 bed terrace or semi

    I reckon we could all take some huge advice and build on our own skills to help reduce clean times. Currently I'm 45 minutes on a 3 bed semi front back and side.

    So....... anyone willing?

    Thanks guys.

    Holy moly, 45mins on a maintenance clean???

    Run brush across the top a couple of times, up/down over the glass and side frames at least twice on each area, scrub bottom, rinse, wipe ledge, next window and repeat.

    It should take about 10-12mins per semi give or take.

    A video would be good to see. I only started in November and I would say about 15 minutes on 3 bed semi now but was a lot slower. I found it was more about having confidence in the cleaning method that sped me up and getting a bit busier.

    Uploading a quick one now, just cleaned the front window with the little one filming, she jabbers on none stop though. Also it was filthy, can't afford a window cleaner, so this was a lot slower than normal tbh.

    Ignore the jabbering, like I said earlier this window was minging so it took a lot more cleaning than normal, but still only a minute and a half give or take.

    Sorry I meant first clean

    It would be interesting to see everyone's maintanance cleans though as I haven't done 2nd cleans on any yet just first.

    Thanks guys.

    That window was filthy, I would class it as a first clean ish...... it was probably cleaned about 6 months ago the last time. Window cleaners round here are to much money.
