    Hello all, i'm currently considering starting my own window cleaning business and have been doing some research this week which has subsequently lead myself here. I'm undecided on the initial route i'll take but the cheaper start up costs of using traditional methods, then investing in a water fed pole system later down the line seems the avenue i'm likely to take. Neverheless I won't rush into making any decisions and will just soak up as much information as possible before i make any commitment!

    As an utter newbie to this industry, would it be worth completing any training courses i.e National Window Cleaning Academy etc, before i let myself loose on the public? Would i be better served practicing at home, then learning on the job so to speak? Any thoughts about this and anything you else would be really appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum .

    You don't need training to clean windows .
    It's common sense really if they dirty clean them until clean simples .
    Get some practice on your own windows before letting loose on jo public lol .

    Youtube is great for learning technique etc watch and learn then get out there .

    Are you looking to start your business with a water fed pole or initially use traditional methods?
