    I've been getting a fair few enquires off of Facebook selling sites, this morning up pops another window cleaner...never seen his company name before locally, but he states on his advert he has 5 years experience.
    He posts a picture of his flyer...£6 any house, + £3 for a conny.
    He got loads of messages many from people wanting quotes from me. It got my back up and I asked how can he earn a living doing this? He responded by saying all cleaners round our way try and earn £50/70 ph and he knew old people and young families cannot afford this....he aims to earn £20/25 per hour ( same as me ) he needs to do 4x houses with no travelling to achieve this per hour. I take pride in my work and a first clean would take me a fair time, I also have a young family so I know how hard it is.

    It got me mad that he painted all professional cleaners as people on the make....and he was the Robin Hood of window cleaners.

    Your going to get cowboys like this in any trade really mate, he can afford to do it at them prices because he's probably on benefits aswell so that will be why he can afford to do it so cheap, cheaper isn't always better and most people no that.

    I came across a cleaner once who was not only doing it dirt cheap, but all new clients got the first one free, he soon folded. Keep your chin up and concentrate on improving your own situation by working smart.

    Duncs, did you just take the customers back with open arms?
    I know money is money...but, I would bear a bit of a grudge about someone dumping me if I was doing a good job!
