    Does anybody do this? Not interested in carpets or cleaning.

    Just the window side of things.....?

    Been approached by an estate agent and they want us on board ASAP.

    Already getting emails coming through for the houses to be cleaned :/

    Anything to watch out for.

    I have confirmed we will be cleaning external windows and frames. Internal is glass only. Not opening any windows at all!

    Sounds to good to be true.

    They give us key, we can clean whenever we want. Hand key back, get paid within 30 days?

    Anything i need to look out for.....

    We are FULLY insured for this as well :)

    A guy I use to work for did these, he went and picked up the keys, done the job, then dropped off the keys and charged for the time he'd been since picking up the keys... Earned loads from it...

    Thats exactly what they want us to do. Its the fact the house will be empty and you can clean whenever that i like :)

    I've been doing this a while now,nothing to watch out for other than charge more if end of tenancy as some can be really bad.
    Don't be shy with prices as agency will charge extra if not done through customer.
    If a long term let they will be really bad.
    You may also find agency will recommend you to tenant to have windows cleaned throughout let and the agency will pay you direct so no chasing up customers,happy days!

    I do this as well, hard for anything to go wrong. They do like the dirt behind the bottom seal to be scrubbed out. Tip - I invoice the agents with the price but I offer an early settlement discount (10%) if paid within five working days. They nearly always do this, anything to save money!

    Done my first one today, went really well. But i have to go back tomorrow to sort out streaking.

    The windows are shot. The frames and seals are really bad.

    I cleaned and rinsed 10 times, but two windows have streaked.

    I am really tempted to trad these one off's inside and out.

    I may use WFP on the outside, then do inside. Then check outside.

    Tbh it was quite fun, and quick.

    Seriously mate might be worth traditional as a lot of the windows I do are really bad,some never been cleaned for years,save the aggro of checking and going back unless they request a frequent clean.
    You can always charge more.!

    Yeah think ya right on that. Might be easier to quickly wash outside and frames with WFP. Do inside then trad outside m
