    Is there any other work us Window cleaners can do in the rain? Nothing worse than to be sitting down and not being to be able to earn any money. Also does anyone clean windows in light rain or do the customers moan?

    Rain doesn`t make windows dirty - dirt does.

    Wind and Wind + Rain is the biggest problem.

    If you get a big round and want to stay regular you`ll have to go out in "bad weather"

    Light rain is fine for wfp window cleaning.

    I don't mind working in heavy rain either to be honest as I can get on with the other exterior cleaning services I offer.

    When pricing work we always assume 1 day a week bad weather, so price 20% more than you would think.
