    Using backpack for first time wfp. Quite impressed but cautious due to ease of leaving spots!

    I have lots of properties with small windows. How do you deal with them. A row at a time still?

    I assume you mean Georgian windows?

    Any stacked glass (windows above or below) ideally need to be cleaned in sequence.

    The main thing is to let the window above drain off.

    Row by row usually once on rinsing. But depends on how dirty the windows were.

    here is a couple of my jobs which might be the same windows as yours ,start at the top I go right to left give everyone a good scrub and a good rinse then move down to next row and so on when you get to the end go back to the beginning again but this time just rinse

    One other challenge was on sash windows where there is an overlap. Getting right into the top edge of the bottom window!

    Any ideas?
