What are the average conservatory roof cleaning prices?

Conservatory roof cleaning will help to clear debris and dirt that has built up on your roof over winter.

It can also be a handy way to keep your conservatory looking neat and tidy in between more thorough annual cleans.

You can expect to pay around £12 per roof panel if you just want to clean your conservatory roof.

How much does it cost to clean inside a conservatory?

Some conservatory cleaning companies offer interior cleaning as well as exterior cleaning.

Cleaning the interior of a conservatory will take longer than cleaning the outside. After all, it means cleaning the floor, sills and interior frames as well as the glass.

You can even get what is known as a full valet service. This covers every nook and cranny of the exterior and interior of your conservatory, including:

  • Clearing gutters
  • Getting uPVC ‘back to white’ with specialist stain removal products
  • Applying water-repellent solution to glass panels
  • Cleaning and lubricating locks, hinges and door handles

It’s always best to check with your conservatory cleaning company exactly what’s included in their services.

Depending on how thorough the cleaning is, you can expect to pay around £475 to clean both the outside and inside of your conservatory.

Factors affecting the cost of conservatory cleaning inside and out

As we’ve already touched upon, there are lots of different factors that can affect the cost of conservatory cleaning. Here are some of the main ones.

The size of your conservatory

As you might expect, the bigger your conservatory, the more you’ll generally pay to have it cleaned.

Which parts you want cleaned

While many conservatory cleaning companies only offer exterior cleaning, some offer both interior and exterior cleaning. Interior cleaning typically costs more since it takes longer.

How thorough the cleaning is

The more thorough your cleaning is, the more it will typically cost. A full valet service will generally cost the most. But make sure to check exactly what’s included as this can vary from company to company.

Your location

As with any home improvement project, costs will vary across the country. In particular, costs tend to be higher in the South than in the North, and conservatory cleaning in London will typically cost the most.

FAQs

Can I clean my conservatory myself and save money?

If you’re prepared to apply some elbow grease, you can certainly clean your conservatory yourself. But remember that it can be very tiring work. You’ll also need to be careful when working at height – for example when cleaning the roof.

It could be a better (and safer) idea to arrange for professional cleaning instead. An expert will be able to complete the job quickly and thoroughly, and they’ll have all the equipment needed to get a fantastic finish.

Crucially, they’ll also have the specialist products and expertise to get stained or faded conservatories ‘back to white’.

How long does it take to clean a conservatory?

How long it takes to clean a conservatory will depend on which parts are being cleaned. Cleaning just the conservatory roof or just the exterior will be quite quick. But a thorough inside and out job could take around four to five hours.

How often should I clean my conservatory?

You don’t need to commit to a weekly or even monthly cleaning schedule when it comes to your conservatory. Rather, a couple of cleans a year should do the trick unless it gets particularly dirty.

We’d recommend scheduling one deep clean a year, with a lighter clean in between.

Is it OK to pressure wash my conservatory roof?

In general, no. It’s not recommended to use a pressure washer to clean your conservatory. That’s because the high pressure of water can damage seals and coatings.

That said, there are specially designed pressure washers that you can use to clean your conservatory roof without damage.

What is the best way to clean a conservatory?

The best way to clean a conservatory is to do the job by hand with warm soapy water. Spirit-based cleaners and other harsh cleaning products can damage your conservatory, particularly any plastic sections.

If you need extra cleaning power, we would always recommend hiring conservatory cleaners near you. They’ll know what products are specifically designed for cleaning your type of conservatory.

Plus, they’ll have experience getting sparkling results without causing damage.

How do you keep a conservatory mould-free?

Condensation can often be a problem in conservatories and lead to mould and mildew. Luckily, there are several steps you can take to keep your conservatory mould-free. These include:

Conservatory roof blinds

How much should I pay for window cleaning in the UK?

Window cleaning prices in the UK start from around £40 for a one-bedroom house.

That said, costs can vary widely depending on the size of your home, number of windows, accessibility and whether you’re after additional services like cleaning windowsills and frames.

A window cleaner near you will be able to give you an accurate quote for your needs.

How much does a cleaning service cost in the UK?

In the UK, the average weekly cleaner cost (for 3 hours a week) is £45. 

But costs will depend on several factors, including whether you hire an agency or an independent cleaner, the type of cleaning you need, and whether you want regular or one-off cleaning services.

How can I make my old conservatory look good?

There are many different ways to make an old conservatory look good – some are big refurbishment projects and others are small hacks. A few ideas to consider include:

How much to clean a conservatory roof?

It typically costs around £12 per roof panel to get your conservatory roof cleaned by a professional.
