Internal Conservatory Roofs?

Recommended Posts

Guest MyLittleCleaningCompany

I have managed to pick up a conservatory roof clean, internal and out. Have done a few of these (outside only) and had some good results using wfp method. However, this roof is all glass. Just wanted to put the subject out there asking for peoples tips on cleaning the inside. I have already asked for the very nice, expensive looking white sofa to be moved or covered along with the ornaments.

Would anyone use a different method instead of wfp on the outside? Should I squeegee the glass on the inside as normal or spray on pure water and buff up?

 

Your thoughts would be very appreciated!

Yes as you said pure water and either squeegee or scrim.

 

Are you doing the inside roof to J ?

Yes mate. So you would use pure water with a squeegee on the outside?

I would use wfp on the outside but if you can use a outside tap i would use this first and get the main **** out the way and i would squeegee the inside and use the applicator to catch the water and move the white sofa :D:D

Cheers Mark. The outside is fairly clean anyway so shouldn't be a problem I was just more concerned with the inside. Might have to get a practice in at the mother in laws! Might earn some brownie points!! :D

Yes J as mark said and a damp scrim for the inside PVC.

For the inside I put down dust sheets, as you can never be sure where water will end up, and then just whip it off with app an blade.

Rocket engineering, definitely not.

I’ve done a quote a few of internal cleaning of conserve roofs, mostly self cleaning glass. Be careful if you’re using a squeegee as it is easy to drip/flick dirty water onto any painted walls etc so use a dust sheet as mentioned. I don’t usually use a squeegee these days and use micro fibre cloths to take off the (dirty) water, I’m confident enough not to have to use any dust sheets, but I would say better to be safe than sorry!

Depending how bad the windows are you can or just spray pure water on the glass and use the cloths.

right cheers. if it takes 30 min to wfp the outside of a con how long would it take to do the inside if both in & out are fairly clean

This is good as I've been asked to do inside of a conny roof and to be totally honest never really knew how to tackle it. I've done skylarks inside with a squeegee and as soon as I squeegee it the water starts dripping everywhere so never had the confidence to do it but getting some ideas now. It's great.

cheers james, im not the fastest so my thought was if im charging £30 for a 30min job eg outside of a con, then the inside could take 3x longer eg £90 or £120 all in. trouble is that sounds a lot to me

Look at a job, add up how long you think it will take you and think what you want to earn from it, there's your answer! £120 might be alright, depends on its size
