  • when did you start window cleaning?
    Just starting
  1. WCW trolly / backpack

    The wheels on backpack trolleys are cheap plastic. Not robust enough for bumping up pavements etc. I think you're far easier with a backpack attached to a normal trolley. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  2. rinse bar at top of brush

    I get by just fine without a pivot. The video I put up is at 80psi but I normally work at a lower pressure. Blocking every other hole off gives a lot more flow. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

  4. rinse bar at top of brush

    Green I use less water with a rinse bar but what would I know. You're the expert on everything. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  5. rinse bar at top of brush

    Try the bissell rinse bar. It only cost a few quid and about 5 minutes to fit. They work best with every other hole blocked off. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  6. Website

    I could. There's a special offer on at the moment too. Just for the record that's not advertising. I'm answering the chaps question. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  7. Selling a share of the business

    If it's a residual business with a proper structure and directors, managers and scores of employees turning over millions then it's a real possibility as this happens all the time. However I'm guessing it's not. So my answer would be to steer well clear. Why would you want to sell half your income ? Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  8. WFP on fascias

    I use a cheap sill brush I got off eBay on fascias. Apply screwfix no nonsense degreaser/ tfr or whatever I happen to have from a 20 litre drum on a trolley. Have a smoke then connect to customers tap and clean. I don't use pure on them. If their not that dirty then cif cream applied directly on the brush works without using degreaser or tfr.

  9. Gutter Vac Blockages

    Show us a picture of the vac and inlet. It took me 5 minutes to make the inlet on mine bigger. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  10. I'm not in the states although I wish I was Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  11. What's it worth to you?

    This has been tried In several different ways in the carpet cleaning industry loads of times for at least a decade that I know of from some big companies too. I've yet to see one that's actually lasted and made a proper go of it. Good luck though. I hope it works out. As you say it's cheaper than a canvasser.

  12. I've never seen a smaller one. Generally the smaller the tub the smaller the motors. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  13. Best safe ladder setup

    I use a ladder m8rix and a stand off Safety wise. https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-MADE-ALUMINIUM-LADDER-STAND-OFF-V-SHAPE-DIRECT-FROM-MANUFACTURE-/112029278601?hash=item1a15772189%3Ag%3AZ6AAAOSw%7EgRV1uwL&_trkparms=pageci%253A149a70dc-9638-11e7-96d0-74dbd1805ac3%257Cparentrq%253A6c49c17115e0a888ac770b2cfff15fcb%257Ciid%253A5 Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  14. If your going to the bother of getting a gutter vac I'd get a bigger one personally. I got a 3000w vac on eBay for £155. Took me 10 minutes to make the inlet slightly larger and it's been brilliant. I ladder some gutters too but tbh I much prefer gutter cleaning over window cleaning.

  15. I've got aluminium poles and as long as your pointing them straight up it's easy. Reaching over a garage roof is harder as they do start to get heavy. Not impossible it's just a couple of minutes of pain lol. If your budget allows it I'd buy carbon. I get by with mine but carbon would be easier. Just make sure their secured properly so their not getting chucked about in the van. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
