    Been doing 3 houses in same road for over year now n occasionally I get problems of spotting from these house doing get thm from any other Wich I'm puzzled by. The windows sheet when I rinse thm so are easy to rinse. I'm wondering maybe it might be down to rubbers on frames or something

    if its just the windows on the road side then it could be dust kicking up from traffic.

    could effect it or even can effect the upvc itself.
    i had a first clean today where the frames just gave the milky white water off while cleaning them, so im hoping that done cause spotting!

    The upvc frames come with a lifetime degrade clock so after 10 years they look **** and need replacing ?

    I have 5 houses in a row, all built a few years ago, all pretty much identical, 4 are perfect and one spots no matter what I do. In fact I squeegee off the downstairs because the finish is so bad.

    No rhyme or reason
