In order to keep your conservatory in tip-top condition, you will need to clean it. Regular cleaning reduces the need for maintenance as dirt and grime causes discolouring and corrosion, making your conservatory looking dull.
Most of the conservatories are quite large and take time to clean. The cleaning can be done by breaking the job into smaller, more manageable tasks like:
Job 1) clean glass,
Job 2) clear guttering of garbage,
Job 3) clean framework etc.
We can also break the jobs down further into inside and outside tasks to make our work easy.
The following procedures should be considered while cleaning our conservatory.
Remove plant material like leaves, twigs etc from gutters, because it can severely limit surface drainage, providing a moisture rich environment for moss and algae, and in severe cases if it is left unattended then it can lead to panels and roofs moving.
Procedure 2: Cleaning the roof
The roof of your conservatory takes a beating from the elements like rain, wind, snow and ice which can all carry small particles of dirt. This cause dirt buildup and reduces the light coming into you conservatory. This is also the perfect breeding ground for algae, which gives your conservatory an unattractive green coat.
Procedure 3: Cleaning the glass.
The window of your conservatory will become dirty just like the window in the rest of your home and it should be cleaned up properly and regularly.
Procedure 4: Cleaning the framework.
Over time, the framework of your conservatory will pick up dirt and grim, and should be cleaned at regular intervals to keep that gleaming “new” look.
INSIDE THE CONSERVATORY
The internal framework and glass is in much harsher conditions than the external. Many of the pollutants are much more concentrated compared to outside. If you live in a house where someone smokes, your conservatory can be exposed to enormous amounts of smoke and nicotine which results in unsightly yellow stain after sometime.
While cleaning your conservatory, safety should be kept in mind. Make sure you are using the correct equipment for the task in hand and if you don’t have the correct equipment for the job, please don’t even attempt any of the tasks mentioned.
