    Hey guys new to the forums but thinking to be bothered to join an online forum we gotta be pretty serious about window cleaning and noticed that everyone is generally happy to offer advice to eachother and good bit of banter too but somw of us have been in this game longer than others so just wondering how long youve been established n how big a company you are ie one man band, 2man, small company running a few vans whether you do commercial or domestic cleaning.

    Been cleaning windows off and on part time since the 70s. Only been full time for six years and plan on retiring next year. I built my present round from scratch to 450 customers on my own in six months using leaflets. That was six years ago, wouldn't happen now.
