Conservatories are excellent assets for any homeowner. They can serve as an additional living room, a place to relax, and a spot to enjoy the space between indoors and outdoors. Does your conservatory roof look a little worse for wear? Here are some tips to make it last:
Clean the glass panels and frames
Tiled conservatory roofs Leeds are great for letting as much natural light in, making it the perfect place to bask in the sunlight and grow plants indoors. But if you leave the glass panels uncleaned for too long, it can begin to get too dirty for natural light to pass through. Plus, dirty glass panels are very unappealing.
At least once a month or every two months, clean conservatory’s glass panes. Start by removing any debris that has ended up on the roof, then clean the glass with a mixture of warm water and soap. Alternatively, you can use a commercial glass cleaner for longer-lasting results. Don’t forget to have someone hold your ladder as you’re cleaning, and use a long brush so you can easily reach the roof.
After you’ve cleaned the glass panels, wipe the frames with a wet rag. Remember to replace the water if it gets too dirty. Otherwise, you will end up spreading the dirt instead of removing it.
Trim nearby trees
If there are any trees near your conservatory, make sure to trim the branches every time they get near the roof. In this way, you can avoid excess leaves from ending up on top of your conservatory, which will reduce the need for you to get up there and clean it.
Don’t use harmful cleaning materials
Avoid using solvent-based cleaning agents and abrasive tools that can scratch the surface of the glass. If there are stains on your roof, use an appropriate stain remover. Never use pressure washers or steam cleaners anywhere on your conservatory’s roof. These cleaners can significantly damage your glass panels and even break them in the worst cases.
Do you want to make your conservatory roof last as long as possible? Follow these rules and make sure to maintain it regularly.
