In the recent past, the conservatory has become a very popular option for many home owners. It is a great addition to almost every suburban house’s traditional landscape. The fact that the entire space is surrounded by windows allows a lot of light to flood inside. However, cleaning these windows can be such an unpleasant and tiring task. Most home owners have spent many hours cleaning their house and conservatory windows without any visible results.
When you know what you will require for the task and what to do, everything should be much easier.
You will need the following for the job:
Cleaning tools and equipment: It takes much more than just a rag and bucket of soapy water to take care of a conservatory. Regular and proper cleaning and wiping of the window frame will help prevent mildew build up and dirt. But you will need some specialist equipment to help you take care of the hard-to-reach parts to help you keep your house and conservatory windows sparkling clean.
Telescopic Conservatory Cleaning Brushes: By using a proper telescopic brush, you will comfortably reach and clean places that are high and difficult for you to extend and reach without risking your health in the process.
Power Washers: At times the situation with the dirt can be extremely bad that it would require high pressure or much soaking – which is not possible with the conservatory. A power washer can clean more stubborn stains. Besides, it is very effective on other non-glass parts such as frames, concrete bricks, stone floors, etc., and even the conservatory’s roof.
A ladder: This is not just an ordinary ladder but a strong and sturdy one to allow you to get that high without endangering your life. Particular conservatory cleaning ladders are recommended. They are more preferable than other types since they are light weight. Besides, they can be attached safely to the top of the conservatory with the special cross-bearers. Because they are also non-marking, you won’t cause any accidental harm to the roof.
The following are the guidelines on how to clean your windows for home and conservatory for stunning results:
For starters, remove all the debris and plant material from the gutters and drainage system. A clogged drainage will always allow water to begin dripping from the gutters which will leave marks and stains on your windows constantly.
Secondly, clean the outer surface of the windows: The outer surface of conservatory windows is the trickier one. Since our gardens are usually filled with dust and particles, they are likely to stick to glass surfaces. As such, window cleaning should start from there. A solution similar to the one you would use to clean your other windows would do fine. All you need to do is dip the telescopic brush into the solution and begin wiping from the conservatory’s top to bottom after which you can use the squeegee to wipe everything clean. Use a soft cloth to wipe the surplus solution.
Thirdly, clean the framework: The framework will need to be cleaned as well. You can use warm soapy water and a soft rag to do this. You should avoid using harsh cleaners since they can scratch and damage the surface. In case your frames are made of wood, you can use a brush to remove excess dirt before using the soapy water with the cloth. After you are through, ensure you treat the wood with some oil for its protection against exterior influences.— August 25, 2015
