    If you afford to drop them, then do it, but if you need the work the come back in Spring with a small price increase.

    Add up what you lose by skipping 4 winter months. divide it up into 8 and add it to their price. That way you still get paid for not doing it

    I've found it's generaly the older folk that might say that.

    Not had a younger person say that to me yet. What about you?

    Listen to this one. I cleaned one house last month and left a note saying no charge as they recommended me to a friend of theirs. I get a call off him asking to go 8 weekly through the winter, after he gets a free clean! Gratitude for ya!

    I won't do them, if they say that to me I say I work all year round as I have bills to pay all year round!
    Hike the price up to cover your losses or sack them off, plenty of good customers about, my favourite ones are the ones I never ever see, clean their windows, leave a note, get paid!
