    Unger fixi clamp

    I purchased this Pulex clamp. Exactly the same as the Unger, but a few pound cheaper. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app ........unable to upload photo ! It was from cleaning spot i think. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  4. There was one property in particular that taught to be cautious. It was a typical small terraced house. I did the first clean and all appeared okay. However, when i arrived a few weeks later to clean it again, i stopped the van directly outside and could immediately see all of the three windows were badly condensated. I thought to myself "i cant seriously go and knock the door to say i was back to do their windows again", and drove away from there asap to be honest !!! But as said above, you can be as cautious as possible, but much of it does depend on luck really. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. When asked to give a quote, If the windows are the older double glazed and already showing signs of condenstion, i just advise the owner that they would be better off getting them cleaned by traditional method. Not worth the hassle. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

Buyer to collect or i could get a postage quote (buyer to pay p&p) . PM if interested. Thanks. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Getting your blood pressure checked once in a while really could make all the difference. You can pick up a BP monitor for as little as ten quid. Alternatively, you can get it checked by your Doc/Nurse at your local GP surgery. I believe you can even get it checked at a chemist by your pharmacist these days. Takes two mins.

    Hi, I actually made a start at building my own round last year. I had gained a decent amount of regular customers, invested in a van and felt confident/optimistic that I could make a success of this. I signed up to the NEA scheme through my local job centre and had my business plan accepted. Happy days. I had made an appointment on the Friday afternoon to ‘sign off’ and officially start trading. Woke up around 8am that Friday morning and felt unwell. Missis phoned an ambulance and next thing I know I’m being rushed to Hospital because I’m having a major heart attack !! 38 years old, no family history of heart problems and felt absolutely fine right up to that day. Anyway, glad to say I have made a full recovery now and have recently started getting my round back up and running. I managed to keep most of my original customers thankfully. I have always used the WCA app for info and advice, but never formally introduced myself to the other members until now. For anyone considering starting their own business the help and advice from the forums members is priceless. Cheers Guys ! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
