    I clean the traditional way at the moment but want to go wfp.just worried how customers will be after having. Traditional for so long also is it hard to pick up and can you get the windows done quicker?

    yeh me use the opposite approach i been sneakily doing em wfp most seem quite happy with it but i dont really have the confidence when they are watching the other side of the glass...lucky for me a lot of em are out so they may never find out as long as a window is left clean.....i have done my job...

    as for is it faster....well...it can be...but it does take a long time to get confident with it after trad....of course some jobs....i couldnt trad any more full stop....

    and i must add.....for a long time tradder....its bloomin hard work hurts my muscles and i hope my lower back pain is just my back getting stronger...but hey...its fun and addictive...

    ^^^^^^ I've found it usually takes about 6 cleans with wfp to get the glass to a point it cleans faster ... First couple of cleans you go back and have a second look G-)

    yeh its only safer until you fall down a step...end up in a pond(smurfy) poke your wife in the face, and watch out for them cars...and dont forget poles can bite....

    it is a different skill set and you need to use peripheral vision...:D

    Borrow your mates gear and do your own windows, then see what you think.

    When stick waggling tops it pays to look down when moving your feet as I found out :D
