    Oliver it's always best to impress the ladies with your tools don't you know. :Image13:
    [SIZE=10.5pt]Most of the time now I use both methods on full exterior house deep cleans as for that one has a large conservatory on the back so my guttervac comes in very handy indeed. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]I’m going back this morning to finish off deep cleaning outside of conservatory including roof which happens to be a full pvc restoration job then after that clean their filthy block paving driveway too.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=10.5pt]Looks like I’m going to be working in inclement weather again as it’s just started to peeing it down yet again… Oh deep joy [/SIZE] :Image3:

    Sounds like you got a winner with all the work they want doing =)

    How much did you charge for a gutter clean?

    Can I ask what make that vac is ? It's almost the size of a Darlek haha

    Have you hired it or do you own it?

    Ad-hoc exterior property deep cleaning is my thing so it's not unusual for customers wanting their drives & patios cleaned aswell.



    Regarding price let’s just say I'm not the cheapest but thankfully I seem to get a steady flow of work from manly recommendations & repeat business..



    I've owned a few guttervac's and that one in the pic is part Omni and part ets that I put together myself out of spare parts. Has an Omni drum with 100mm inlet but trolley & head is ets make
