    yeah but when people see a window cleaning van thats on a 59 plate and with nice alloys etc... they just know the person must be doing well... this is why a lot of people start up window cleaning cos they know theirs money in this game

    I seen plenty of flash vans come and go too. The kit doesn't mean jack to customers but the quality of service does.

    My perception on window cleaners has changed a lot since WFP. I think image counts for a lot as its important to look professional and not "fly by night".

    i think ppl see us as perverted scabs to be honest. how many times have i chatted to women online and they say what do you do. i said window cleaner. then i get bet you got lots of stories aint ya, do u see ppl naked. didnt you do well at school then. all insults to me. ok i like a good laff like you all but these are the kind of things i get asked. another girl said i bet you get action dont you. so now i decided to say im a wfp cleaner or a glass technician

    Most what I call snobs perceive humble cleaners as something that they would wipe off their shoe. :D

    I've found that down to earth folk perceive hard working cleaners with much more respect that they deserve.
