  • when did you start window cleaning?
    2014
  1. We are getting absolutely plastered here in Cardiff. The wind is loud as thunder now. Poor old mans working outside on the night shift. Be a few roofs missing come the morning Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  2. Too expensive

    Best of luck to you fella! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  3. Too expensive

    Youve done the right thing. Many people prey on new businesses to get a cheapy. We nearly went bust after 5 months, not charging enough didnt help. Equipment costs money and so does being alive. Dont make the same mistakes i did! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  4. I dumps it in the garden borders mate, its their waste! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Too expensive

    Its ok mate, let them take the lower quote (if there even is one) half the time they just say it and you know its not the case they just want a cheapy. If someone does do it for lower you can bet theyll be new and will charge more the next time they do one Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  6. I reckon its gonna be fine by the morning wouldn’t panic like. Cup of tea & a bacon butty you’ll be ripe as rain boyo Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  7. January generally occupied with the first rounds of the year after christmas. Takes a while to get through them all as well with the darkness & weather. We Dont take a lot on or advertise, its a time to be keeping your regulars happy. First two weeks of february generally the worst as the rounds are done and cant find enough bigger jobs to occupy us until they are due again. So financially for us February is usually worse. March gives a hint of life sometimes but dont get over excited, you can still have big freezes and even snow in march. April it really takes off and then you’re rammed until christmas. April, May and june have been consistently the busiest for us every year. End of july August takes a minor hit as everyone with kids knows they need money for the 6 week summer holiday, and they generally go away for a fortnight, but its only a slight dip. And September october rammed again as everyone starts panicking about the gutters before the november rains. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  8. Stopped accepting cards a year ago. Constantly chopping & changing of regulations did my head in. Cash, post cheque or online banking, if they cant do either of those theres something wrong Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  9. How to upload videos

    Fair enough geezer! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. Best way to clean Leaded lights

    Who knows mate. The search bar seems to be pretty pants. Id never clean a leaded house trad lol. Tedious. Be there half a day easy all them little diamonds one after the other...tedious! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  11. Wouldn’t even chance it if it does happen mate. Next thing you know your ladders on top of someone’s 17 plate. By all accounts its gonna happen tonight and will be gone by the morning. I’ll probably have a sleepless night. Wind blowing down the chimney stack rattling away at the fireplace as usual while the cats racing round the house like he’s possessed. Storms drive him mad. Couldnt drive one morning i was so tired had to have the day off sick which is not like me. Hope you get well soon dude! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. Best way to clean Leaded lights

    Green pros got a video on cleaning leaded windows. Not sure what you’re on about regarding leaded lights sorry. Wfp same as any other window. I find scrubbing side to side works better on leaded rather than an up down motion. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  13. Public Liability Insurance

    Kind of looks more professional, on the other hand if you advertise you have it may entice people to go oooo i can pull a fast one here. you never know if they will pay out when the time comes though. They all have so many clauses and so much small print so never assume your eggs are in the basket. First & foremost be careful! & watch out for claim culture customers. We had one in the early days. Cleaned all windows wfp nothing else used. Claimed it had scratched all the windows & wanted our insurance details. All obviously scratched already. Should have seen her house as well, everything whitewashed and nicely decorated, fancy carpets, had it all already living a higher quality of life than we could ever dream of yet still looking for a free buck. Have a good look at them and point out any noticeable scratches or chips when first taking them on maybe Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  14. Gutter Vacuum Attachment Issue?

    Yeah theres a geezer on her who makes his own, solvent weld & standard waste pipe. Posted just the other day see if you can find it. Quite handy over paying 40 quid a pop for a part and waiting on delivery Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. Should I switch to WFP? HELP!

    I use every method going to clean windows mate, mix and match. Gets boring otherwise! We are water fed but do some bungalows/ground floor flats trad especially if theyre small & it doesnt justify getting the gear out. Water fed youll make more money & can access pretty much any window but your equipment & maintenance is that much more expensive. Trad poles are a good option. Ladders should be a last resort in this day & age, not the safest or most practical of options especially since the age of extensions and conservatories on every other property. If you were doing terraces in the 70’s maybe. I find trad easier in back gardens especially as its easier to work around the clutter Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
