Well i could not do a 4 bed semi in 10 mins well. Been going just two years so far and i think i am reasonably quick but need about 25 mins for 4 bed at least

Jonathan Sanderson would you do us all a favor and make a video of a maintenance clean you do so we can see where we all go wrong? I would love to be able to do an average house in 10 mins heck even 15 would be great

This is a video I recently did to show some how I worked.

 

This property is a 4 bedroom detached house (WITH CONSERVATORY)and takes me just over 10 minutes to clean. All frames,ledges and doors washed down.

 

I also know that I work to a high standard. I never get complaints and regularly check my work. All work is referrals etc, so I know I'm not splash and dash.

 

I also know that I'm by no means the fastest. Some on here would knock spots off me.

 

Point is that 10 minutes for a 4 bedroom detached is easily achievable and doesn't mean that quality is lacking.

No comment! Haha.

 

I'm up in Scotland, so prices aren't great, but at the speed and efficiency that I work it means it can balance out for me.

 

At the front there is only 2 upstairs and one downstairs, plus front door. I charge £10.

 

Trad guys around me charge £5-£7. I know. Yikes.

cant argue with that jonathan:D

 

great video nice action....I have tried to make one myself and will do soon to give you all a laugh...

 

twice I tripped over the bloody hose and pulled the trolley over today...

 

and hauled the trolley up to do some roof walking so didnt put too much water in and yep it was one two foot window short of water....grrrr..

 

and catch things with my hose ....hmmm

 

its actually easier to just try and lassoo things in advance ..on that roof walk I managed to catch a garden bench down below....I was NOT amused...

 

now you know why I like to wfp when no one is about...

 

and ...yep ...I DID NOTICE....it was the nice glass...:whistle: in your vid...

 

yeh plenty like that at a tenner around me too..

Wow that is some speed i have to admit. I think I rinse a bit too much that is where i am going wrong. Also it looks like all the windows in the above example are hydrophillic which helps but still quite impressive

The difference is jonathan knows what he is doing and is skilled at his job all be it having to use vision as makes his job easier to do.

 

cant argue with that jonathan:D

Haha cheapy. Your comments always give me a chuckle.

 

Believe it or not the glass is actually hydrophobic. I do use the vision in my water, and that Along with the fact that I use a high flow rate helps me clean this type of glass just as fast.

 

3 mill (wider ) pencil jets with my flow controller set at 085 which gives me just under 3 litres per minute at the brush head.

One of the major factors in me being able to work quick is flow rate.

 

I can't stress it enough.

 

If you want to increase your speed then increase your flow.

 

I see some guys working with a trickle and it takes them 3 or 4 times longer to rinse.

 

In the video when I rinse water is flooding every inch of the glass, it just happens in a few seconds because I use a good flow rate.

Letter boxes are a pain @Duncs

 

They do slow me down a bit. Have to go along the top opener first on each side if the house, then back to the lower panel.
