    HI all

    Just had my training with a wfp window cleaner this morning and :wow:how much better it is than cleaning ovens for a living and it started raining too but was still better to me... :))

    Wasn't even like work compared to what I do just hope I can build a decent round up now in next year or 2. Really enjoyed it going to order my kit next few weeks and get cracking..

    Any more tips or advice really appreciated, thanks again to everyone on here so far its a great forum and lots of helpful decent folk on here. cheers

    You'll do ok mate if you put your mind to it
    It's worth getting some trad gear and a harris pole from b&q
    Sometimes it is easier to trad some bits and insides
    Also if your wfp goes tits up you are still earning

    No need to be fancy
    Straight pulls and detailing the edges will get the job done on insides

    one piece of advice I can say is...if you have the money get the best...and judging by most people on here that is the slx range of poles...

    good luck with your future and keep us informed...:D

    I always try to get more for insides just a bit extra because it can be a pain...especially in winter when you have to derobe somewhat and you have to move stuff around....close call today...I nicely caught a can and something else slid rather fast on the gloss paint...ya gotta be careful..

    and of course if the vicar customer asks me.....ya cant do insides because the insurance is too much...they really are minging...
