  • when did you start window cleaning?
    Starting Soon
  1. The Windymobile is complete! Ready for my first clients tomorrow!

    No lessons, no test, No fuel. No insurance. No tax. Plus I used to cycle 26 miles a day for work! So saving myself a fortune, still earning enough as a part timer (which I wouldn’t be as a driver) and being a little bit different all at once! Plus I do like a cold morning :-) and skin is water proof! Just not enough people willing to give something a shot in any way they can... Plus, my customers love it!

  3. The Windymobile is complete! Ready for my first clients tomorrow!

    Attached the windymobile to the bicycle for the first time today! A success. Had several admirers plus a new 4 weekly job! Have to sort some more cord to ensure it is a little more stable when cycling along roads with potholes but none the less I got to three clients with a third of the time travelling!

  4. Flyer feedback

    They arrived today. Bleed was a little bit off on them but none the less not bad for £30 including next day delivery for 1000! Thank you eBay for giving me a £10 voucher a few days ago! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Gutter cleaning chemicals

    So dip the brush and apply? Leave for several minutes before cleaning off yes? Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  6. Gutter cleaning chemicals

    I want something where I can spray in areas I cannot necessarily reach via a ladder but can scrub off with a wfp brush using tap water. Virosol appears to be a product that keeps coming up so I may invest in that. When you say apply via brush, do you mean using a backpack? Sent from my iPad using Window Cleaning Forums
  7. Gutter cleaning chemicals

    I'm looking for a product that I can use in a spray pump to directly apply to PVCu gutter and also to fascias and soffits. Any suggestions?
  8. Flyer feedback

    I feel like it is! Which I suppose is the main thing... Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  9. Help getting customers

    I was lucky enough. I delivered 65 leaflets the other week to a street right next to mine. Ended up with 3 gutter jobs and a regular job that’s £25 a pop! You just need to find that sweet spot and keep running at it! I’m slowly but surely increasing my round and I’ve only been going a month. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  10. Flyer feedback

    Thank you! I think mobile numbers are just long winded... easier to roll an 0800 number off the tongue... plus it’s something free to my potential customers. Literally nothing to lose giving me a call! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  11. Price

    Definitely been undercharging for guttering services! Was a big detached four bed with a separate garage... thankfully I’m quite new to the whole thing, so ongoing customers wouldn’t even realise I’ve increased my prices! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  12. Flyer feedback

    That’s usually what I do within about a couple of weeks of dropping them. Works a treat when they’re in! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  13. Flyer feedback

    Hi everyone! After my first month of business, I’m feeling amazingly positive! In the first month I’ve taken over £300, gained confidence in going for those higher quotes and even expanded into gutter, fascia and soffit cleaning! Baring in mind I also work a 48 hour per week nights job... I think I’m on target for what I want to be earning every month. That being said. I’ve decided to redesign my flyer to an A5 double sided flyer from a single sided, somewhat boring, A6 flyer that doesn’t even mention the fact that I do gutter cleaning too! So I’d like your feedback on my newly designed flyer I’ve created today. I’m hoping to have them printed in the next few days ready to post over the next few weeks!

  14. Price

    Do you guys charge for clearing out and then another charge for cleaning? I’m pretty new myself. Charged a 4 bed detached 75 today for both! Think I’m considerable undercharging by the sounds! Took 4.5 hours being slow due to my experience... Sent from my iPad using Window Cleaning Forums
  15. My starting up set up

    I started 3 weeks ago now! Around a 48 hour per week nights job... So far I have about £100/4wks in regular work plus I’ve managed to get plenty of one off gutter jobs which means within the first month working a day a week I’m taking over £350! I’m a non driver trad, so built the windy mobile to start my venture! We all have to start somewhere. It’s just about getting out there and starting it off. The missus went mad when I told her I spent £400 on window cleaning kit. Now I’ve started she is on board because she can see I’m doing a good job and bringing the pennies in! I wish you the best of luck. I’m still learning and have a lot to learn but I’m happy to answer questions about starting up because I’m in the same boat as a newbie!
