    Has anyone got any experience of getting bumped out right by a customer?

    Had my first one in 12 years the other day! For £96. Always let it build up and he'd pay.....but not this time the f~*ker!!!

    I never do a clean if there is an outstanding payment. I expect to be paid for each job as its done, so if it has not been paid by the next visit they get left.

    Just soap them out and leave them !

    I stop cleaning them after 2 cleans For normal houses, most off my houses pay on the second clean online

    But do get bumped some times !!!

    Someone on here suggested WD40 once which I thought was a great idea.:whistle:

    I think I would probably go for a supersoaker to get the upstairs ones.:hehehe:

    Wd40 I have a customer with brown upvc window frames and she puts wd40 on her frames to keep them brown as the sun turns them white

    It's a mission to get off the glass ! I all ways let the lads do that house ;)
