    In leeds the window cleaning game is going down the pan the market it absolutely flooded with pure water window cleaners.
    There's lads out there employing canvassing teams to go out canvassing for new work and all the canvasing teams are telling customers that there windows dont need cleaning every four weeks and to have there windows cleaned every eight so theres lads out there cleaning windows every eight weeks for £10-£11 pounds.
    You lads are shooting your selfs in the foot and just showing how desperate you are for the work..
    Im so glad im not just starting out and have over 700 a month to keep me occupied.

    Honestly my only prob is East Europeans doing houses at £2 a front they are canvassing all hours to get everyone on board and they are going out in teams of 4 smashing an area, all working trad of course as cheaper to set up and are not doing a good job, even if we leave the EU I can't see this stopping too soon as these are happy to work 10 - 12 hours a day for £40-50 each!

    The thing about Europeans is a lot of people wouldn't trust them. Just say oh is that the boys who stole a pair of football boots from down the street

    It's not all about "budgerigar" window cleaning, if I get a job I like to be involved at it's inception not send gangs round door knocking only for someone else to turn up and do the job. It's nice to earn someones trust and bulid a friendly relationship, we've always got time for a cup of tea with our custy's and we like to see them now and again some even give us xmas presents, I'd like to think there wouldn't be many who would dump us for £2 Romanian, no offence to Romanians.
