There’s no need to feel daunted by conservatory cleaning, with the right tools and equipment this can actually be quite a straightforward task. Problems only occur when people choose the wrong products to clean conservatories, or set about the task without thinking about what they are doing, taking risks in the process.
Here we explain what you should do and what you should avoid if you are cleaning your conservatory at some point this year. Read these guidelines, and get in touch with us if you require conservatory cleaning equipment at any point.
Avoid Power Washers
Although it’s tempting to pressure wash your conservatory this type of forceful action should be avoided at all costs. The pressure involved can damage seals, the glass, or the framework of the conservatory, which could then result in a pricey repair. Instead of using a pressure washer, try a pole-fed water cleaner designed specifically for this task. Not only is this a safer solution, it leaves sparkling results and there’s no stretching or ladder climbing involved.
Never climb onto the conservatory
Under no circumstances should you consider climbing onto the glass roof of your conservatory. Even if the glass is toughened it could still break with the force of your weight causing serious injury. You can climb to roof height if required to brush debris off the glass, after which you could proceed to clean the conservatory using an approved, water-fed cleaning system.
Don’t forget the gutters
When you clean your conservatory make sure you remove unwanted debris from the gutters too. Moss, leaves and algae collect in guttering systems so they should be scooped out so rainwater can run away without any problems. Do this twice-yearly in the autumn and in the spring as part of your ongoing maintenance plan.
Regular cleaning will make you want to use your conservatory come rain or shine and we have the perfect product to make this task easy here at H & G Promotions.

We have the perfect pruning tools for you here at H & G Promotions with many different types of secateurs, loppers, pruners and saws available to cope with numerous types of bushes, plants and trees.
Our secateurs for example, are the ideal garden tool to trim back rose bushes, and here we give you a few tips if you are facing rose that’s rapidly growing out of control.
Top tips for rose pruning include:
1.) Trim at the right time of year
Ideally this should be done in the late winter, towards the end of February or March. Don’t worry if you haven’t trimmed your rose bush yet though, you still have time to invest in a set of secateurs and start clipping!
2.) Establish the type of rose
Climbing, rambling, shrub and bush type roses are all common species found in UK gardens. If the plant has long stems and is quite tall, this is a climber, if the rose is quite small and fairly close to ground level, it’s a shrub or a bush.
3.) Read the plant profile
If you are lucky you’ll know the type of rose plant you are going to prune, or, at least, have the care label handy to refer to. Follow the care instructions for the profile of the rose, and when you are cutting follow these steps to success:
- Cut cleanly using a sharp pair of secateurs
- Make cuts no more than 5 mm above a bud, and ensure the cut slopes away from it
- Cut towards outer facing buds to enhance the shape
- Snip to the right height
- Remove dead or spindly and diseased stems
- Try to space the stems when cutting to encourage air flow when the plant grows
- Remove dead wood and get rid of stubs that fail to produce shoots
Once you have effectively pruned your rose bush feed it in the spring, you could add manure or a good grade compost to help the plant thrive.

Condensation is annoying for a number of homeowners, it forms when the humidity in the air changes into liquid water due to the coldness in the room. Common in a host of properties, there are ways to combat this problem and reduce the chances of it happening over the winter period.
Here are our 5 tips to prevent condensation gathering in your home or in your business.
You can buy dehumidifiers in the majority of large retail home shops and they aren’t that expensive. To get the most of this method, place your dehumidifiers as close to your window as you possibly can. Dehumidifiers remove the humidity in the air; this moisture causes the droplets of water that form the condensation on your windows.
2. Circulation of air
- If your windows have curtains or blinds during the day open them, so you can expose the surface of the windows to circulating air. This circulation of air will help to prevent the accumulation of condensation but also remove moisture if it is already seen on your windows.
- Weather permitting; open your doors or windows to help the circulation of air around the home and by your window. As already mentioned, this circulation will help with the condensation problem.
3. Double glazing
Although the most expensive option in the short-term, having double glazing in your home can save you money in the long term. As well as being very effective in removing condensation with your home, double-glazed windows can save homeowners money on their heating and cooling bills, helping to lower the cost of utilities. They are also much safer options in terms of theft as they are a great deal harder to break into.
4. Checking vents
Although having vents in your kitchen and in your bathroom is a very effective way of removing humidity whilst cooking and washing, if these vents are broken or blocked, their performance and ability to remove humidity can be severely limited. Regular checks on air vents will ensure they are working well and humidity is being removed during peak times.
Making sure the caulking around your windows is okay is a simple method to ensure your windows are fit for purpose. If necessary, re-caulk your windows, this will prevent cold air or moisture from entering your house through the window frame. Having caulk around your windows is one more way you can reduce the amount of condensation, and in some cases even prevent it.
These are just a few tips to remove and prevent condensation from establishing itself in your home. Hope they’ve helped!

Conservatories are a great way to add more space to your home; a comfortable area which brings light in whatever the season. Now that we’ve passed the main hit of winter, how can you start preparing your conservatory for the sunnier seasons?
There’s a strong chance that you neglected your conservatory in the winter time – heating can cost a lot of money and you probably found yourself using the extra space for Christmas things and leftover cardboard boxes.
Give your conservatory a good clear out and thorough clean – including all of the windows - to prep for the summer season where you’re sure to be using the space to its best ability. Be ruthless with the stuff you’re throwing away – no hoarding now! You want your conservatory to be a calm and relaxed space, which is best achieved through minimalistic design.
How about replacing those fluffy pillows and furry rugs with something a little bit brighter to reflect the upcoming season? Think about how your current furniture will look in the natural light and evaluate if you need a total revamp or just a few extra touches for a real summer feel.
You could even think about doing a bit of a paint job, whether just a top up to keep it looking fresh, or something a bit different. You’re best to stick to light shades though as this will maximise the natural lighting around the room.
Conservatories do get hot in the sun – this can be both a positive and a negative. The negative of that being that it can get too hot. This is why you’ve got to consider how you’re going to control the conservatory’s temperature in the warmer months.
There are a number of ways you can do this but installing blinds is the most efficient and safest option. Whilst leaving the doors or windows open in the conservatory to let the wind blow in may sound idyllic, in reality, it’s just doors slamming constantly and risking intruders. Air conditioning is an alternative, although can be a rather expensive one.
By installing blinds, you can open and close as you wish, controlling how hot or how light you want the conservatory to be – and they look great too!

Walking outside and finding that your car or conservatory windows have been covered in bird droppings is never the best thing. Whilst some call it good luck, most of us will call it an absolute pain. But what are the best ways to clear it up? We’re here to help...
Don’t leave it
The best way to clear up bird poo, or guano, from your windows is to do it as soon as you can – as soon as you’ve seen it if possible. That way, you can prevent it from drying, saving you a, even more, difficult clean up job! Act quickly and your windows will be sparkling again in no time.
If you’ve noticed the bird droppings a little too late so that they’ve dried, don’t worry because we’ve got some tips for that too! Firstly, ignore your initial instincts to start scrubbing or scratching the dried-up waste away. It’s only going to be more effort for you and may damage the glass it’s on. Your best bet is to loosen and soften it...
Soaking it is a certain way to help loosen the bird droppings after they’ve dried. Grab a bucket of warm water and a sponge and begin to soak the area by holding it down for a few moments. You’ll start to notice that the mess will soften and become easier to wipe away. Keep patient, it will be a much swifter job this way.
Now that it’s loosened, it’s time to get rid of it! Keep the warm water that you used to soak the bird poo, and add a little bit of soap. Take the sponge and rub it gently over the area – this should get rid of the most of the mess! If you find that there’s a little bit left, get your hands on a plastic scraper and gently remove the rest of it of your windows.
Finally, to make sure that your car or conservatory windows are left with no soapy streaks, clean your whole window thoroughly.
