Steps on Cleaning Conservatory Roof

Here are the steps that you should follow when cleaning your conservatory roof:

Start by preparing the cleaning solution

The first thing you can do is to start by preparing a solution, which you’ll use for cleaning the surface of your conservatory roof. Check the instructions before you starting preparing the solution. Normally, a cleaning product for conservatory roofs will require mixing with lukewarm water.

Assemble the telescopic cleaner

The next step is to assemble your cleaner ready. Just attach the brush at the end to the stick along with a squeegee. If you’re confused, just read the instructions on the cover or package.

Start cleaning the conservatory roof

Once you are ready with your tools and equipment, it is time to get started with the cleaning of your conservatory roof. Wet the brush end of your telescopic cleaner in the cleaning solution and buff the windows in a circular motion. If your cleaner isn’t long enough, you can use a ladder to position yourself. Once you finish brushing the roof, the next thing you have to do is clean off the foamy residue with the squeegee attachment. Repeat the process until you’re completely satisfied with the result.

Replace your cleaning solution

After some time of cleaning, the cleaning solution will get filled with dirt over time. So, it is important to replace the solution after a while. Simply empty it out and refill it with a new cleaning solution. This will make your cleaning more effective and safe.

Don’t forget the frames

Cleaning your conservatory roof also involves cleaning the frames. Use a suitable solution to clean it and wash the foam off with water.
