    Hi all ,I had no houses to do today so i decided to clean my own windows.I was testing out some microcloths i bought recently because i heard there better then scrim.When suddenly next door asked how much i charged ,i quoted her £7.80 and that i always keep the frames clean to.Then she says shes got a window cleaner who come every month and he charges £8 but she ll "sack him off" and i can do them.{oops}
    now i feel like iv cheated some poor window cleaner out of a house ,she also said she ll get a few more around my area.in my defence i think she just wants to get rid of the other cleaner.
    any thoughts?

    She approached you, so no issue. If she was happy she wouldn't of asked.

    They obviously weren't happy with the cleaner to ask you to do them. It's great picking up neighbours, I love watching the cleaners do it badly in my street and then wait to see them and it's always, "how much would you charge for mine?" won't be long I will have a good days work in my street and not have to move my van.
