    i know a few window cleaners and wouldn`t give any a job, you`d be better off finding someone young and enthusiastic and willing to learn YOUR WAY....

    Can`t teach old dogs new tricks.

    My little cousin is learning the ropes, he`ll be in his own little van next year once he`s learnt how to do all types of jobs and be respectful to people and property.

    No one will ever put the effort into your business like you do i`m afraid, but there are good workers out there.

    I`m going to have card made up for Thomas when he starts cleaning windows on his own. Windows cleaned by Thomas and then my personal details if they have any issues with the service or him.

    Then i can sort any problems and give him grief if things arn`t right.

    I started a new quy he is 58, been out of work for 6 months.

    I am training him from scrap, bought him all his own kit, and he
    will work with him till he is ready to go out on his own.

    It takes time and patience, but if you want to expand you have to
    stick with it. good luck.
