  1. I decided to make a shorter one off video as the other thread I did with three separate videos was a bit jumbled so hopefully this one makes a bit more sense.

  4. Green Pro Clean Professional Canvassing For Window Cleaners As well as being a professional window cleaning company we also provide professional canvassing services for other window cleaners looking to expand and grow their rounds. Our service is only available from 1st March to 31st October each year. The reason for this is that during the November and December time you will pick up too many clients looking for a one off clean before Christmas and during January and February people are still feeling the pinch from Christmas. Due to being window cleaners ourselves we understand the types of jobs you are looking for and hence we do not canvass in areas where poor access is an issue such as through the house or over garages. We also avoid terraces that have long walks to the ally at the back. Another reason for avoiding terraces is that these get hit hard by charity canvassers due to the high number of doors in such a short run. We do not take on jobs that are below the minimum price you set. The customers we canvass for you will be expecting a regular reliable window cleaning service that cleans the windows, frame works, sills and doors on each visit. We suggest you offer a text reminder service the evening prior to ensure access and prevent you from having to climb fences and gates unnecessarily. Most importantly we explain to the customers that payments are collected by BACS or GoCardless if you have it. This makes for a stronger client as they are in it for long haul. As well as explaining to the customers what they can expect, with our understanding of the methods you use and to clean windows we also explain to customers if there is anything that can’t be done such as occasional very high Velux windows or a window where there is no safe access. We do this as a good customer relationship always starts with managing the customers expectations properly from the start. What makes us different from other canvassers is we do not promise you the world and then fill that promise with clients with poor access or people expecting a ‘trial clean’ to see if they are happy first, we only provide clients that want regular service. The price is three times (3X) the value of the work ordered. We do not offer any ‘cancellation’ guarantee or any ‘clean before payment’ gimmick just good solid clients in return for a fair price. We canvass £500 worth of work a time, that’s it, no more, no less. You may want £3k worth of work and think paying a canvasser for that much work in one go is a good plan but it’s quite often not. The reason we work in batches of £500 is this a manageable amount of work for you to get the first cleans done in a timely fashion and get them integrated into you regular rounds. You can order as many batches of £500 as you like, we will however only fill one order a time so we can keep the work load for us and for you as manageable as possible. We use the same techniques to canvass for you as we do to build our own rounds so you can be assured of the quality of the clients you receive. For further information or to book our service call us on 07581128101 or email at info@greenproclean.co.uk

  6. Hot water FIT conversion

    So the van I am currently using is a cold one man system. Two things are in my mind. 1: winter's coming 2: I have some schools over half term that are minging and hot will be a big advantage. Now I know nothing about diesel or LPG conversions so please don't ask. What I do know is that cheap portable Propane shower heaters work really well. So that's the plan. Fit a DIY unit. Now this will be the 3rd one of these I have done so when all the parts arrive in the next few days i will do a real time video to show how simple it is to do in 30 min or less. For now here's the shopping list. Heater Hose. Regulator (this time I went with one with a guage to make any potential trouble shooting easier. Big azz spanner - you need this size to fit the regulator. With the exception of some PTFE tape and a couple of jubilee clips that's pretty much it. Including the propane bottle all in under £150. Video to follow as soon as parts are in stock.
  7. Using squeegee

    Hi. I have found someone who is willing to take me on as a trainee, how long on average does it take to learn how to use a squeegee? The company is aware that I basicallly have no experience. I've tried for the past couple of days on my own house windows to master the "s" method, thanks to youtube, but I always leave some watermarks down the side, or the occasional streak because of the rubber blade hitting the window edge. I'm worried that I won't get the hang of it once I start working for this company, its way harder than it looks, it's so frustrating!! Thanks Brice
  8. Hello everyone, I have recently decided to add window cleaning to my already existing cleaning buisness! I live in a hard water area and as I'm just starting out I haven't invested in a RO system! Instead I'm collecting rainwater to filter through a di tank fitted in my van. My problem is I have rigged up my downpipe into an Ibc with a mesh filter at the end of the spout but there is still some amount of sediment in the ibc! I don't want to damage my pump or di tank so how can I pre filter this water before I pump it into the on board tank in my van? Im going to be using a sump pump for transfer or the rain water. I'm looking for any advice from people with more experience in rain water harvesting! Any advice will be appreciated, Thanks.

  14. Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place. So I have worked with a friend for over a year now doing the traditional way. Now I'm feeling ready to go my own way. At the moment, I have a lease with Toyota, I own the aygo. This car is not appropriate for window cleaning (poles or traditional) because it is too small. So I am looking for advice on what Toyota car is the best for ladders and poles. (I can only stick with Toyota because I'm still in a lease agreement with them for another 2 years.) On top of this, regarding the poles, is it better to get the trolley or a big tank to put in the back? I really need a car rather than a van as not enough seats and as I'm just starting up on my own, I can't afford anything too costly. So to sum up, I need a Toyota car that I can fit ladders too legally as well as a big enough boot (potentially back seats that fold completely flat) to fit either a large tank, or the trolley with 6 (?) tanks of water. So with all that, the car has to be able to handle the weight. As an extra question, there's lots of brands for the equipment for traditional (unger etc), what is the top of the range brand I can invest in?

  18. Hi guys After the replies and advice from my first post, I have decided to go ahead and get in a bit of practise on before I look for a trainee window cleaning job. So what equipment does a commercial window cleaner have in their arsenal? Like scrims, cloths, wet or dry? I'll buy an applicator and squeegee online, I was thinking ettore. What size squeegee do you think to start off? Thanks Bricie

I am looking to expand my business in the South Manchester area - anywhere in the Macclesfield / Poynton / Buxton / Disley / Hazel Grove regions - and am hoping for between a £1,000 and £1,500 return each month. If anyone has anything slightly similar to this, I would be greatly appreciative if you got in touch by emailing 'annabel_gowrie@hotmail.com' with your details and I will get in touch. Thank you!
