    I clean if I can through some light rain, if it's windy and hitting windows its a judgement call.
    Depends on the customers too, a fair few of my customers are never in day time, so what they don't know....
    Windows are clean so no complaints.

    It can make a difference especially when you are cleaning windows. Also it is not safe to clean in the heavy rain. There is always a danger that you might slip during rain while cleaning.

    Just wondered if you clean when it's dry :huh:
    If your working off ladders it can get quite dangerous,I've slipped on ladders a couple of times with wet shoes and wet rungs.
    Never have a problem with WFP just gets uncomfortable when your pants get wet (maybe too much tea) I think being sensible and holding up in heavy rain early lunch sometimes.

    I'm same as Ken.
    Wearing glasses and working wfp in the rain does not mix well.

    I wear glasses and i find wearing a peaked cap (baseball cap or similar) helps keep the drops of rain off my glasses.

    Use small mob for cleaning outside windows, this is easier and faster way to clean you home specially in rainy season.
     
  8. WFP all the way. But I don't work in heavy rain....only because I like staying dry! :p
