    I think it would take long time to clean fascia with steam cleaner

    Do not forgent you need to wait for water to heat up and so on and I have not seen steam poles to be so long.

    I've tried steam cleaning white plastic window & door frames as a test before and found it did not work that well on badly greying discoloured white plastic as would not restore it back to white. However I did find it's a handy way to clean out window openers & door traks.

    I'm using a hand pumped pressure spayer to apply to windows, frames etc before trad clean. Seems easier to me than bucket.

    Bought it to apply hot water and cheaning agent to fasica but it's no good for that unless theres zero wind. Now I'm sticking to the easier apply to brush then scrub method :)
