    Hey guys was just walking down my road and noticed 4 houses next to me that a wc cleans and noticed the frames are absolutely mankey .
    so was just wondering how many of you clean the frames etc each clean or do you do just glass only ???

    I know he charges around 7 quid for these houses and he's done within 30 mins .

    click here

    the 4 next to the houses that are being built

    what you guys reckon ???

    I'm trad, first cleans I will always clean the frames. If they are regular custys I will always keep them clean, not every time they will need done, maybe every 2 or 3 times they will get a quick wipe..

    have won a few customers by stating that i aways clean frames etc. first clean can be a pain but once its out the way the next time is breif..
    a guy cleans my mother in laws windows and he doesnt touch the frames. i'd be cringing taking money for that tbh.

    I make a point of doing a good job on frames on first clean no matter how long it takes, makes me look better than the opposition and it's easy to keep em that way. Way I see it the frames part of the window.
