    Just thought I'd start a thread where we share what changes we'd be making to business over the winter months to make it smoother basically... Figured it'd be mutually beneficial to lots of us/new ideas etc.

    My Main change will be doing zero add on services and thus focusing on this new round in its first winter.

    The only diffeence is the 1 off cleans get an extra 50% so its 25 instead of 20 for a tenner house

    My change will be not expanding my round as there is less daylight hours in winter and concentrating on being set up properly for next years silly season of conservatories, gutters, fascias, roofs, driveways, render cleans, wasp nests etc etc etc
    No more boring window round every day for me

    It's our first year this year and our first winter. I will still be adding people to our round as I need to jump ship from my job this year to join my dad full time.

    To prevent the water from freezing, lower the freezing tempature. Cheaper than to use isopropanol.

    EDIT this practice is for trad cleaners
