    ask your customers if they are happy with your service etc & tell them ' oh this bit was really bad but we got it shinning now ' n stuff like that.
    talking to a wc i know & he was saying he always talks up the job he's doing to his customers & gets his lads to do it as well, now he has a twin who has a big decorating business he built just by talking people into doing the job for him cos he's not a decorator. i think they're both just good sales men, i'm not i get tongue tied after about 3 mins
    so do any of you have any standard patter to make the customer impressed with how much you care about their house

    I just grab their cash and go usually. However, at the school I was cleaning today there was just one teacher in there working. A lady in her 30s with a very nice figure. Felt obliged to sit and chat to her while having 2 cups of tea.

    I always mention to mine after a few cleans if there happy etc, which they are, I get alot of you have made such a difference to the look of the frames etc etc. Always nice to check up if everything is ok when you see them, just like in any other business.

    I always make a thing of telling them if I have done something off my own back such as washed there garage door down or removed some scuffs off there front door with solvent, always goes down well and builds the longevity bridge somewhat.
