    Two of my neighbours have asked me to clean their windows. I don't feel that comfortable about it tbh. Ok I'll be getting 20 notes, but I feel it's bit low working for people you know. What if I don't do a top class job every time or more neighbours ask and I'm working for loads of neighbours? What do you fellas think?

    I do each house either side of me, 31 all together in my street, most have know me all my life.. Usually takes ages to do them as everyone wants to talk!!

    Definitely take them.. Good to keep your work close to base!

    Have you not heard of the saying?

    Don't sh*t on your own door step?

    I wouldn't, unless it was a one off clean every nown again...

    i have a lot of neighbours that just get their fronts done and ive no problem with doing them as i priced them right from the start ,i wouldnt reduce the price otherwise they wouldnt be worth doing.but as said it keeps you on your toes because if i do a bad job on one house then the word will spread fast and i could loose a lot
