    Window Cleaning in Winter

    Year round ! No exeptions
  3. Yes it will work but will use a fair bit of liquid it’s difficult to pump and use the pole at the same time , just put a connection on the sprayer outlet hose that’s compatible with your pole hose
  4. thanks very much everyone for the great advice. general question - can i use one of these: http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=361345433113&category=50365&pm=1&ds=0&t=1539334146000&ver=0 and just add the correct fitting to attach my WFP to the garden pumps hose ? possibly a cheaper solution until i can afford another dedicated back pack ( as i already have a gardiner backpack but i use it for pure water cleaning on the hard to reach balconies so would be nice to have a cheap tank dedicated to applying the cleaner solutions ). or would the height of a high gutter make the pressure system on them kinda worthless for the task ? any recommendations for cheap garden pump and spray would be appreciated

    Can't you just get your cherry-picker out?

    If I had one to get out, yeah.
  7. Yep I agree. If you haven’t got a backpack use an 11 litre garden pump up spray bottle. Rectus fitting on the hose from it. As above just plug it in your pole apply and then rinse. I always use tap if there is one.
  8. Yeah, was fishing yesterday, relaxing over next few days and back working Tuesday. A manic busy short week next week. Bring it on.

    Graphic Designer?

    I tried fiverr. Think there was a language barrier as when trying to suggest changes to the logo the person designed. what came back was a tad inappropriate looking. Probably just my requests that messed it up.

    Bank Holiday (Good Friday) day off?

    Sod work. Millwall yesterday, been fishing today then off to Hastings for a couple of days. Enjoy life 🙂
  11. water trailer with 2 x 400 ltr baffled tanks and pump for sale. I retired recently after 33 years of being a sole trader commercial window cleaner so I have all the gear available for ground to 3rd floor work. Collect in Boston Lincolnshire PE21 £800
  12. Rain water harvesters and then pump it through d.i. Vessels. Thats what we do. When theres very little rain we’re back to the outside tap though. The more rain you get the less tap water you’re using therefore the resin lasts longer.

    Bank Holiday (Good Friday) day off?

    I will be working on monday morning doing the oap Windows. The kids are already driving me mad and I can't wait to get back to work.
  14. its not worth it as you need to use very harsh.poisonous chemicals..... if he s using lots of resin his tds must be high......
  15. dont overcomplicate it....all you need is a backpack with your chemical of choice in it...simple plug your normal pole in,apply the chems then plug your pole back into your van system and scrub/rinse away.....simple and quick....
  16. the house is up for sale...id wait until they sold it and the new owners moved in!😀

    Booster pump fittings

    I've been told they offer to send it good to go, just the connections on the inlet and outlet to fix. By the look of it I need one male to female and one female to male which saves me the hassle of knowing which is which 😂 Thanks mate, I think you're right i'll give them a call Tuesday and see what they say.
  18. at the end of the day he can charge what he wants for a window cleaning job.....theres no "standard charge" for window cleaning...... i have all sorts of prices low and high.....i have some cheap estate work that is very compact(90+ houses on one estate and 70+ on the one across the road)some jobs are only £4 for fronts only(3 windows and a door)and they take min 5 mins to clean....im still earning £40-£50 an hour on this work....i have other jobs that are £80 and take an hour to clean in the same area......i must be doing something right as im earning around 45k a year for 20-25 hours a week window cleaning....which i can live on quite comfortably
  19. I always like that sketch where they're looking out to sea pondering over the sunken family fortune, 'The sea shall not have it' goes delboy haha, expecting rodders to get out there in that cumbersome antique diving gear lol. Might have to watch that later whilst supping a beer pre pub/club.
  20. At the ripe old ge of 59 (60 this year) I have been runing my window cleaning business for around 7 years. I have a good customer base and all of my customers are great to have as regular cleans. Over the years I have been in many managerial rolls - sales manager - product trainer - team leader - hire shop manager - wedding photgrapher, and I also had a marketing company selling corporate clothing/business stationary. Window cleaning came along as a part time few hours a week while I was trying to make my mind up what I really wanted to do as a living later in life. After running the window cleaning business for the past 7 years I have never turned back! The customer base grew slowly at first but then created it's own momentum enabling me to make a good living. I have always been a believer in giving a good service in whatever business I'm involved with or whoever you work for. I have found that over time with this business window cleaning is more than just cleaning peoples windows. You build up over time a good rapport/relationship with the customers and give them a service that they look forward to everytime you turn up on a regular basis. Customers always love a chat and are always pleased and grateful for the service provided. It is one of the services in their lives that isn't something that they have to have - unlike like running costs of their homes utility bills/food etc. It is a luxury that they are paying for and something that they can see what they are getting for their money. I am really happy and proud to have a lovely customer base, and really enjoy getting up in the morning for work knowing that it will be another day dealing with people that appreciate the service that I can give. Window cleaning is an important service for a lot of people out there and to the ones that take pride of their homes, we are a great add on!!
  21. Yeah, I don't think folk would be too happy when they're having family and friends round for a BBQ. 🙂 Hope you get a chance in between working to relax and enjoy the weekend.
  22. It sounds like he is trying to employ the old stack em high, sell em cheap tactic in an era when it’s more or less impossible to build rounds like that anymore. Everyone knows it does work, there’s still lads out there today cleaning £4.50 semis and getting £30+ an hour which even after expenses, tax hol pay etc is a damn sight more than min wage. Don’t get me wrong there’s still loads of work out there, just not at them prices any more.
  23. A few commercials today and Monday. Don’t do domestics on bank holidays. It’s like turning up on a Sunday.
  24. We use a Gardiner backpack and clx 27 pole with a softwashing nozzle of Ben Marriot at Rutland pumps we use Virosol and keep a mix permanently in the backpack works very well
  25. Thanks for the reply, as you were selling the van and equipment separately I thought you might be looking to sell the round separately as well. Unfortunately outside the area I would want to work anyway.
  26. Hi Part Timer I only posted the ad yesterday, and you state not getting a reply, i am not sure what you mean, when you say considering the time span!? I have quite a few offers on the round from other sites such as gumtree, but really need to sell the van and equipment FIRST, whoever buys the van gets first offer on the round, but I'm not selling the round by itself. As for other questions above i am based in NE39 area, near Blaydon The round is mainly in Gosforth, NE3, and Wylam areas Hope that all helps My mobile if SERIOUS on van and equipment is 07891594850 Please don't contact me just for the round, as for reasons stated in ad and above Thanks SM
  27. Just finished. Took 3 hours. I remember the the first clean, it hasn’t been cleaned in 12 years and it took me 6 hours 🙄
