    Hi - I was wondering if pressure washing a conservatory with pure water may help me to finish quicker and with better results??!

    I haven't clean a lot of conservatories - but the one i've done , honestly not very impressed (luckily I got paid lol). After a good rinse I could see some kind of bits / debris/ small particles on the glass (it was a glass roof). I thought a pressure washer will blow all that more professionally in no time . Here is a 4m telescopic spray lance on ebay 290587008916
    which might be useful to clean fascia too? just apply some g101 or anything else and jet wash it ?

    Do not use a pressure washer on a conservatory roof!

    if you are leaving small particles of dirt on glass using wfp, just use a large squeegee and leave the glass dry.

    The only time I use a pressure washer on conservatory roofs is to maybe clean filthy finials and crests quickly but after saying that I do know what I'm doing.

    If you attempt to use a pressure washer on a conservatory roof then more chances than not it will leak and cause you a whole load of grief in doing so..

    Sorry but only cowboy's would go about pressure washing a conservatory.

    Ive lost count of the amount off conservatories ive pressure washed,put some g101 on with chemical nozzle, use a(045) 25 degree nozzle, about a 1000psi , going through a boars hair brush and ive not had a single leak yet, honestly there is some nonsense talked about power washing, there is a science and some common sense involved, cowboys don't ken how to use em and give others that do a bad name, I wudnae bother using pure , until id finished with the pressure washer then a quick run over the glass with a wfp , job done happy leak free connie.
