Conservatory Cleaning

I usually use a extendable car wash brush with lots of soapy water on it. For the UPvc trim, use a cheap kitchen cleaner with bleach in it (Tescos Daisy stuff works well). Then after you have scrubbed the roof, either use your WFP system or use an applicator and squeegee on an extendable pole system.

 

Did one a few weeks ago using the traditional system (as I am not quite on WFP yet) and it came up pristine. It hadn't been cleaned for 7 years

Regular cleaning of conservatories greatly reduces the need for repairs and maintenance .Conservatory roofs should be cleaned with warm water and a specialised mild detergent to remove grime and algae. The glass should be cleaned with a streak-free window cleaner. This will be the most time-consuming part of your job, but it is very important in order to keep your conservatory looking good.

i disagree with sharper cleaning, the glass should be cleaned as normal either with apllicator/squeegee or a wfp system will take half the time and have a better result than using window cleaner. As for an algae covered roof hot soapy water and a stiff brush then rinse with a garden hose this way is far more effective and quicker than trying to clean with a wfp, i use cif on the upvc parts

i just put a little on a normal duster, gently scrub the upvc and wipe it off. once i've done that i hose it down. I've never had any issues with scratching so far so touch wood.........

Bathroom cleaner cif is the one to use check it is non scratch as some of the supermarket own brands could cause scratches.If the pvc is heavy soiled try loosening it with a soft brush and then soak with warm water and squirt some cif onto a brush/cloth and work it in,leave for about 10-15 minutes (continue doing other windows) and go back and scrub and rinse. comes up a treat. non scratch scourer can help speed things up.

Dear cleansrvc

 

I think you've missed the point in the question ref conservatory cleaning. We don't want to sub-contract or get someone else to do job for us. We want suggestions as to what is the best way for us to do the job.

I have done a couple of conservatories recently where there has been moss and brick dust on the roof (from building work). The best thing to do I found was use an extendible pole with the applicator on the end of it and scrub, scrub, scrub. One house I did last week had 2 bin liners full of moss taken off the roof. That was a painstakingly laborious task of just dragging it all down then handing into a bucket.

 

The only downside to doing it this was it that most conservatories are erected by non-builders and you will find the lead flashing isn't flush to the roof, therefore hosing it may cause water to run down the inside.

 

Best bet is soapy water to scrub then squeegee to remove.

 

With regards to the plastic........as I said earlier in the post, something like cheap Tescos Daisy Kitchen cleaner works just as well as Cif but without the scouring agent in it, therefore not scratching the plastic/glass
