    You may get the odd few who are pedantic about their windows who will prefer it. However, for those who are used to six weekly cleans, I reckon won't be to pleased to be coughing up more dough per year if they don't think it necessary.
    This is only my opinion obviously, but I used to do 4 weekly cleans and found quite a few used to ask to go to 8 weeks as they thought 4 weeks was to soon. But as my business grew and i got to 6 weekly, hardly any customers asked to go 12 weekly (I do a few who ask for every other time cleans).
    Why do you want to change to 4 weekly?

    The position you are in is difficult as you can't win. Go all 6 weekly you have a lower income. Put them to 8 weekly and you lower income. If you try to put them to 4 you might lose some and some might want it to be cheaper if it's 4 weekly

    It might be best to ask everyone first then you get an idea if you can do it.

    But at the end of the day you need to make a decision and stick to it. It's no good having 4 and 6 weekly when you get busy.

    How about going monthly or 5 weekly? Maybe they won't mind as much?

    Mines all 4/8 weekly I do have a couple that are 6 weekly but they are on my doorstep so it's no big deal to do them on my way out or home

    The guy who I got them off started them at 4 weekly as he got busier changed to 5 weekly then 6...I've cleaned them once and I've asked a few people already and they all was fine except 1..but there still a lot more to ask, and some have even said to me are u going to be more regular than the other guy who was juggling them around his commercial work so ended up doing them at all different frequencies
