UPVC and Conservatory Cleaning and Maintenance
Well let’s be honest: it’s not rocket science to clean a conservatory. However, these few simple steps may prevent you wasting time unnecessarily and causing unwanted damage to the conservatory.
Firstly, it is advisable to remove any foliage and debris from drainpipes and gutters. Once cleared you can begin to clean the moss, mould and mildew from the roof with either a water fed extension pole or a pressure washer. Make sure you start from the top and aim pressure downwards so not to break any seals underneath the UPVC/wood ridge caps or glazing bars and incur any leaks. A good sturdy specialist conservatory ladder will make the job a lot easier, allowing you to get closer to the worst affected areas.
Once the area is completely clean you may find that the UPVC still has dark greasy markings on it. The best way to get rid of these are with a specialist UPVC cleaner (please read the label for product guidance), a clean cloth and a bit of good old fashioned elbow grease. The glass can be polished using a micro fibre pad attached to an extension pole.
