    Hi all, as I'm still only cleaning at weekends and it's taking it toll physically on my 46yr old body, I was wondering how many members clean in a day, I clean glass and wipe cills down and have done 32 houses in a day roughly 10 windows /doors per house, but have to say I'm totally done in legs cramping and sleeping by 8pm lol

    Arc, my cousin who has cleaned for 20yrs says I will speed up when I'm full time at it, he does 6 houses an hour but only wipes some cills down for the fussy customers. I don't think I can go any faster as I'm totally wiped out after 8hrs

    Its a kind of pointless question really, there is some days I do a couple of commercials and make more on 4/5 jobs than I do cleaning 25 houses. Then what are we calling a day, everyone works different hours.

    So I guess my point is, how many you do can't really relate to how many other window cleaners do.

    My average day is 9 til 3 .

    But on a day where I have 17 to do I'm on from about 8 til 4 so im doing 2 an hr glass frames sills and doors obviously I will get quicker as time goes by but I'm happy at this rate at the moment .
