    I may have an apartment block to clean where at one end access is complicated by a wall and a hedge. I don't think I can get enough of an angle to clean the windows with my current set up because of the wall and the hedge. An option is to go the other side of the wall to get the angle but it goes on to a pavement near a busy road and I don't want to do that for health and safety reasons

    Is there a pole fitting or angle adapter that you guys use at times like this? If you get close to the wall then you can't see what you're doing either

    That question is not specific. I need some picture.
    Possible solutions: Night work, Rope access, working platform.
    Some time I work close to wall with my back to the wall. It is not comfortable and wet work conditions.

    Yeah will order Gardiner's gooseneck and sill brush today. Will be handy for other jobs as well as I do quite a few houses where the window is set back and there is a large sill to clean. The sill brush will also be handy for fascia and soffit cleaning
