Conservatory cleaning

We've never had one before and this thing is a huge mungus thing, window cleaners are frightened of it due to the internal height, I'll post a pic later if I can get in there as it's storage while we get 3 rooms plastered with renovating plaster as it should have been done 25 years ago.


The whole thing looks like it's not been clean inside or out in a few years, but otherwise, it's in good condition.



The outside is just a reach problem due to its height and size, internally a different approach I assume as it's quite dirty, and must be 10-12 feet high, long brushes will create too much mess I think so maybe stepladder hiring time?


Any and all ideas are valuable as to method cleaners and equipment.

Get the wife to do it. I do outside and she does inside. Be a gentleman and hold the ladder.

I bought one of these a few years ago and it really is convenient. Indoors, outdoors and around the MH!

Had one of those in the states when the Eagle we bought didn't have a ladder. Folded up nice but was quite heavy.

I have one of those already, not sure of the height yet, it's buried in the garage, I was more thinking regarding actual cleaning tackle rather than access for outside.

We have something similar, but Hans says it gets heavier every time he needs to use it.

I have a telescopic ladder too, hard work on the thumbs putting it down, and if you don't use all of its length it's a big jump to the second step.

I've never really understood the fashion for conservatories.

They're roasting hot in the summer, freezing cold in the winter (unless you spend a lot on heating them), they take away from what might be nice garden area, and they are difficult to keep clean on top. And that bamboo furniture with the floral cushions!

It can't be about extra house space, 'cos lots of good sized houses have 'em.

Can someone enlighten me?

I'm daft and proud of it.
