How to keep your conservatory roof clean

Conservatory refurbished with a Metrotile Lightweight Roof System Shingle Charcoal

Conservatories might be popular for observing plants and nature but they also, unfortunately, have a habit of getting dirty very easily.

Your conservatory’s roof is going to be the most exposed area, and a build-up of rain, dirt and general garden debris can soon have even the neatest conservatory looking a mess. But how do you go about cleaning a conservatory?

Your cleaning arsenal

When it comes to cleaning your conservatory’s roof a telescopic pole is going to be your best friend! Sometimes called water poles or cleaning poles these pieces of equipment offer great reach and allow you to easily clean high-up places. It’s worth putting research into different makes as some may feed water into them directly, while some may have brush ends than you can fill with water and then attach.

Another thing to remember is that while water is incredibly useful for cleaning your roof, you should also be sure to care for the glass as well. You can do this in a number of ways but conservatory cleaning fluid is your best option. Simply mix some in with your water and you’ll be able to ensure your glass is properly cleaned and cared for.

Are there any other options?

With the right equipment, cleaning your conservatory’s roof is much easier than it might first appear, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t tiring work. In fact putting the time aside to clean and care for a conservatory is one of the main reasons many people don’t get one, as even with the right equipment it can be tiring work.

But there is another option for people to consider and that is a solid roof! A solid roof will transform your conservatory and won’t require the same care and maintenance of a regular glass-roofed conservatory.

You can get solid roofed conservatories designed and built from the ground up but you can also get a replacement conservatory roof put onto an existing conservatory as well. So, if you’re looking to skip the cleaning and maintenance entirely then a solid roof conservatory is ideal for you.
