    I clean a lot of old houses with single pane windows and often clean the inside and find that they're all steamed up!! So I try and clean them in the same way but it never seems to do as good a job as outside.

    How are people dealing with this?

    Just work as normal, when they turn off there heating and the steam dissipates it will come up fine. Its quite a common thing with single pained glass, especially at this time of year.

    thats a nice big un bud, ive got a couple like that, nice ones to have. The answer to your question is yes, clean them with smallest applicator and small squeegy just as u would a normal house and then just edge up same as normal and your away, hope this helps fella

    I wouldn't worry about it. If need be explain to the customer. Happens to me especially when its really cold out side and hot inside.

    I have heard and seen some customers leave a potato on the sill to stop condensation.don't know if it actually works though.
