  1. I need a bit of advice as ive been asked to clean a pub inside and out.

    how do you clean the inside if your waterfed pole?

    I don't have any equipment to clean insides, ive always said i don't do it.

    this is a big job though so i don't want to turn it down.

    Any help would be appreciated as ive got to go back again today and let him know.

    If its a big job you should just go buy a mop and blade, you will always have them for the next inside job and it will be the best way for insides. You should get sorted for around £30

    Even if your water fed you should always have trad tools in your van I would invest in sone if I was you pal.

    when i bought my stuff i spend £60 on trad tools incase i ever needed them

    3-4 weeks down the line got asked to do a job inside and out so just practised on my own windows for a few days and i got them protty clean no runs streaks or anything so cant complane to much and the job i did i was well happy with so was the customer.

    i charge per hr inside myself dunno about anyone else iv heared people charging double for insides

    its a must imo maby 90% of your work will be wfp but when u get asked to clean inside of connys or French doors u need to be rdy to say no problem give me 5 lol

    you can`t call yourself a window cleaner if you can`t use a squeegee and a scrim you must learn you will end up turning down some great jobs if you don`t` learn
     
  9. In the last year ive been asked twice to clean insides as a one off, so obviously i just said no.

    Id assume being called a window cleaner means you clean windows, whatever the method, am i wrong or should i be carrying around equipment which costs money just to look good? Thats not really part of business plan.

    Now ive got a job that requires it i will be purchasing the equipment as its profitable for me.

    Is it worth getting a good kit as its every 2 weeks, what brands are worth considering?

    I am wfp but 3-4 times a week i clean a inside window and to be honest it a nice break normally when you do a inside you get a couple of tea as well , i should think for £30-40 you would get a good kit it is a must [hr]
