    Hello as im new to this game but did have my own round in 1999, just wanna try and find out a few things before i jump in check this lot out http://www.weclean-group.co.uk/ is this some kind of click going on, when i done this gig ages ago there was no such thing going on it was each to there own every punter was fair game but we used to stick to our own patches, and another thing was i used fairy now you seem to use other stuff, i think i need a bit of guidance in 2012.

    Thanks in advance.

    Theres still loads of chaps use fairy mate but plenty use other stuff, I use ecover personally. As for patches I don't believe in them and nor do many others, we get work where we can.

    You can make enough out of just cleaning windows if that's what you want. I only clean windows and earn a good living.

    Some people choose to do other things too (driveways, carpets etc) but that's entirely up to you.

    If you want to just clean windows then all you need to do is find enough customers to keep you happy. And there's plenty out there!

    im only 100% windows etc :) my adds on are solar panels,conservatories, fascias & soffits etc :)

    theirs enough money to be made out of window cleaning :)

    I find carpet cleaning and driveway cleaning a right headache :p id rather keep it simple and just be a 100% window cleaner :p lol

    so im sticking to the windows :)

    im 100% wfp :) if u want to be big and make the most out of your window cleanin busienss then wfp is the way forward :) it enables you to take on a good large amount of work that can not be done with ladders.

    if i wasnt wfp.... i would lose over 50% of my work because a lot of my work is over 2 storey.
