    Don't know about you, but when property management companies come to me to clean apartment blocks, if they have Juliet balconies they say "don't clean them", (as they cant be reached unless cleaned from the inside).

    Even ones I have privately priced up, the balconies (windows) are designed to be cleaned from the inside. Would you go this far to clean those types of windows...

    If they said they had to be done and they paid the price for it then yes I would do that!

    Must admit, I would rather knock the job back. Unless I could clean the glass from inside. He only needs a 9ft pole to do that job. Bet that pole weighs some.

    I agree the pole is a bit over kill, unless the lift only goes so far and he uses pole to reach higher!

    Can you imagine pricing that job up, u would have to allow for a cherry picker, now that's not cheap.

    and flip me sideways too. I priced a large job in bradford, two old huge mills converted into flats. Needed a cherry picker, so priced them up at not short of 3k all in. Told the property maintenance company it would be high. Didn't get the job, and didn't want it either.
