    Yup, canvassing all the way.

    Just out of interest, how did you get started and how did you get to the stage you are at today?

    Sometimes when you're just starting in a new area, you will pick up allot of the ones that other cleaners have steered clear off, for one reason or another. If the main reason you're dropping customers is not getting them in, or not getting paid. Then there is a few things you can do there, to try keep a hold of them.

    Do you find that is the case?

    Get a website thats SEO. (By far my main source of work)

    Advertise on Facebook, all the for sale groups. (second source of work)

    Local News letters (third source of work)

    There my 3 ways that work for me, It will probably b different for you though
