I tried at test patch on the fascia with 15% sodium hypochlorite (hypo) and it did absolutely nothing. Which apparently is the strongest bleach you can buy.

 

Darn....I wish now I had taken some pics to show you all how bad it was

Funny thing was I look at next door and it was just as bad. Then during the clean the chap came out to ask me for a quote to do his. You can guess what I said :D

That's got to have been my worst job to date and I was really peed of trying to scrub years of black crud & thick water stains off the plastic.

That's the problem with neglected old plastic as can be a barstuard to get clean. I've found newer plastic is much easier to clean as mostly comes off just using wfp pure or even tap water.

I agree, it made me laugh as the customer when I had finished said can you get my finials back to white ! I told her, you don't clean it for 15 years then expect it to look brand new! Needless to say I did not get a tip :gush:

I would have said something like "that's not included in the price but will attempt to clean them for you while I'm here for xxx amout" :D

I have done that loads of times. I have a policy of not doing It now as its a little bit dodgy. I just pole it. I either squeegee off or, if the velux is small, I have a marine drying cloth bundled up in a clamp on my pole.....just dry it off like that....does an excellent job.
