    Doing my first commercial tomorrow and im bricking it !

    I don't know why it's only the same as cleaning anyone else's it's just more windows lol .

    You know when you guys first started did any of you feel ashamed or embarrassed that you are a window cleaner ?
    I did but i have since over come this as i think to myself i got nothing to be embarrassed about im on a ladder cleaning windows for maybe 3 or 4 times what your earning an hr lol .

    I reckon il be done in 2 hrs as its a first clean and only got to do about 10 on the ladders lol so the rest are all within standing
    £90 for 2 maybe 3 hrs work not bad eh .

    being a window cleaner is a respectable job, as long as you do it long term and year round, you will be dealing with long term customers, some of which stay with their windy for 20/30 years, what other profession has customer loyalty like that? thats because you get respected by your custies
