    Hi guys,

    Quick question, been asked to clean some windows on a new built house, the windows still have the protective stickers on the frames and some residue on the glass (so I'm gonna have to physically get up there myself before wfp washing them).

    My question is, apart from a scraper, scrims, applicator and washing up liquid, is there anything else that I will need (or may need)? Is there anything on new Windows that i need to lookout for, or any special chems that I may need to use?

    Thank you!

    look out for silicone on the glass , be sure your scraper has a brand new blade before you start

    I had a new built bungalow today in and out
    7 clusters of windows aand only 1 or 2 panes without at least 1 scratch or chip
    Told her they would be bad and showed her afterwards when all the other muck was off
    Mainn thing is to point out there will be marks straight away if you notice any..show them 1 and say there's more like that..then they aren't gonna blame you
