  • when did you start window cleaning?
    Oct 2015
  1. Caravan clean

    I done quite few over summer was charging £140 I got one to do next week, last few charged £180 and they been happy with that...can take longer then some soffit facia jobs. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. compared to the brodex one the water flow rate was ridiculous and rather then misting out on to windows it jetted out..tried telling me have to do short bursts of water by turning tap on off quick. even held the pole and got the missus to turn off quick to try do quicker...they got me to measure the flow rate...dished out over a litre of water a minute.which theu tols me was correct flow rate.i done my own comparison with Gardiner back pack and on lowest setting done about half litre minute dial turned round just over half way which is where I have it back pack output was about 800ml...told them it's not fit for purpose there would be water everywhere...did wonder why Gardiner have not go videos showing it in use now I know why..told them for the amount water comes out may as well take my backpack indoors hold my finger over the end and give quick spray for fraction of the cost (which I also wouldn't do lol )...im a fan of virtually all Gardiner products but this, wouldn't waste your money..spend bit more and get the brodex one.

  5. Izettle card reader payments

    I use PayPal card reader they were around £70 but seen pop up on my Facebook lately there doing them for £35 also handy as people also pay me through PayPal as well and send me payments via friends and family so no fees.. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  8. Univalve's with 40 ft poles

    in use Gardiner clx27 with the extension to tske it to 32 I think with uni valve...i do 4th floor flat no issues with turning water on off or control Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. also with customers face to face stick to your price you want don't worry what others charge...dont under price your self and agree to do for example a 3 bed house for £10 when you really want £15 because when you get busier you will come to resent doing that house for £10 when similar houses your doing your getting £15+ Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. putting prices on website don't think would do you any favours..how can you put a price on for example a 3 bed .every house is different size...of someone calls you up and asks how much to clean my house...how do you know you havnt seen it... Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  11. First Bash at WFP a success

    uni valve on wfp whilst connected to hise reel all good..but I also have a Gardiner back pack and the motor in it does not sound good when you shut water off with uni valve..doesnt seem to like it .back packs virtually brand new but prolonged use with uni valve id be bit concerned it would pack the motor up.

  12. you being a newbie then and using so much of it that it stains, think you've solved tour own problem, your using too much...there's beem probably loads of these same posts and loads of us use tfr for soffits facias conserv roofs etc and I personally have beem using it for over 2 years on every job with no probs or issues.. you only need to put a tiny bit on a 5ltr sprayer, spray on and scrub with water fed pole rinse of bubbles...job done.

  13. Gutter machine

    don't under stand why you would want to fork out for a generator and have the hassle of carrying it in your van, just get long extension reel and use customers electric...any of my customers that have wanted gutters doing i tell them when I can do it and they make sure there in, job done.
