Inside of conservatory roofs

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just wondered if there is a knack for cleaning inside of conservatory roofs? I did my first one today. It was an absolute scorching day so the solution dried up by time i came to blade it so left smears. I tried damp clothing them scrimming it which just left those horrible shiny smears. Eventually, i just used some detergent spray and microfibre cloth; this seemed to work best, but im dissapointed with the oberall result. Have i done somethong wrong?

Haha many thanks! What made it worse was it was like a sauna, and there were blinds up; they were drawn but the wire strings thats held them in place were there so i had to work around them. Pure hell. Next time i may just pass on the inside. I probably made it look worse any way. Luckily it was part of a very big job (gutters, windows, fascias, soffitts and con roof). The overall effect was good, just displeased with the inside.

i do them with a light shortish 4 ft telescopic pole , with a soaped up swivel 14 inch tbar on the end . scrub scrub then drape a scrim over the same tbar and buff off . id use about 6 scrims in the buff process by the end of it

I've never done one(inside con roof), nor do I care to, but if I had to, I'd use my zero degree squeegee on a short pole. I swear by this squeegee and think it's the most under rated squeegee of them all. As long as you can take the drips landing on your face, you could tackle overhead glass with ease.
