    Do you guys work all year round ? Do you find many customers drop you in the winter ( even tho they probably need windows cleaning more in the winter )

    Yes its all year round job

    im now thinking for the furture to tell all my customer that I will no longer work January.

    I will do christmas clean then call again in February.

    I dont need to work January.

    Ive been 100% reliable over the years and customer s have said many times I must be mad working on some of the days I have.

    Im sure my customers will be fine with it.

    Whats your thoughts guys ???????

    Were all mad washing windows for a living, and the more years you got to your name, the madder you must be.

    january is the same as July, it's just that my fingers in january tingle a wee bit.

    It must be nice having january off but I can imagine quite a few of my customers wouldnt be happy with it at all. Some would be seriously miffed.Also, what happens if february turns out to be snowy and icy. I can see where you are coming from, but personally wouldnt do it.
