    My man Derek spent all day cleaning round these flats and cleaning the windows, got this job the other day during canvassing ,
    All windows monthly £84
    Powerwashing paths and patio area at back off flats £250 every 6 months
    Happy days, the owners were happy with the job. windows and frames took 2and half hours for a first clean but came up great, should be quicker from now on, fthe building is t shaped so a good few more windows at the back

    Hopefully you did it from a distance! Or the pressure will blow the seals!!

    That said, I did a deep clean on my parents conservatory the other day, and because they have a crappy little karcher that is about the size of a big lunchbox I used it to blast the frames clean (from a bit of a distance) and nothing bad has happened so far, they didnt leak or blow or etc. wouldnt have done it on a custys house but..

    Youse must have **** windows " down south" , we have been cleaning down houses for years and not one blown seal or anything, im sure youse know by now i clean lots off roofs , the house needs a good wash down after usually, course we dont go close up too the frames but unless they are wooden frames we give em a good blast with a 40 degree nozzle, thats the important part, ive cleaned fasia and soffit and connies and caravans up here for years , not one single issue, the building regs in Scotland are much tighter than England due too our more inclement weather, up here a hoose must be wind and water tight otherwise it will fall apart in nae time,ive been stationed in England and saw first hand the poorer quality,honestly i cannae figure out why youse think you will blow seals on modern upvc , use the old common sense, dont use a turbo , do use a 40 degree nozzle, ive also got a car wash lance for cleaning fascia and soffits with some Autosmart injected through the powerwasher, takes half the time off wfp and does a better job :D
