    First couple of months is hard convert work that you've done with a ladder to WFP,some customers don't like change or the water on the floor or glass left to dry.Getting their frames and sills cleaned each time,that window above the conservatory and not standing on tiles leaning across to clean the window above the porch is all bonuses.I now WFP in two weeks what use to take 3 weeks and I am not rushing about.I have taken on work which I would not of done if still only used ladders.
     
  7. First few months on WFP are slow. years of dirtly sills and frames take ages to clean but once they are clean its just a quick Cat-Lick-Wash for them and the windows and they come up like new! No cutting corners, it just takes minutes. To give you an example - I have been window cleaning for a massive 6 weeks now and can do a standar 3 bed in 8-10 minutes - it took me 45 mins for the first clean but now I am super-windie (in my head at least)
    Convert - it works - and if you need help setting up cheaply there are a few of us that will help you and in fact if you are happy to come to sunny Southend I can help set up a system for you for free (my time I mean).
    Good Luck.
