    Looks like a nice little earner Jake. What brush did you use for the cladding mate?

    Reason I ask is that I was asked to test my brush on some cladding quite similar to that a few days ago in preparation for a clean this week.

    So two builders held a bit of spare cladding whilst I was asked to forcefully use my brush on it to check to see if any scratches or marks were left.

    I know it wouldn't (and it passed their 'test' but got me thinking about what the best brush is. I'm planning to use black flocked medium Gardiner.

    I use the facelift Phoenix brush mate, it's quite aggressive but it's the only way the bird poo comes off, it didn't leave any scratches, it's my fave brush actually!

    It's the red one in the picture

    You obviously don't hang about if you cleaned that lot on your own this morning. How long did it actually take you and did you have to do the inside glass as well...

    No just outside smurf, and you know me by now smurf, I don't hang about, I work fast, (I must add, I don't claim to be the fastest window cleaner etc, but I know I'm faster than the average, from watching other wfp guys, they seem very slow! I try to work like a machine and keep pushing till its done)

    Round the side where the dark green slats bit was, (which goes right down one side, I only took a picture of that window) I wfp' the top half then used my pressure washer for the bottom Half which meant it literally took minutes to do.

    As for the silver facias, really I was only getting the bird muck and dirty marks off it, so wasn't like I was scrubbing it like a window (there were lots of bird strikes on it though)

    Took me 4 hours all in all
