    Been window cleaning for donkey's and I'm always amazed at what other work I pickup from customers.
    My background is farming and building and have used these skills ever since. Case in question; 5 years ago a couple from London moved into the village. First I cleaned their windows, then painted them, then re roofed their garage, sheep fenced all their land, cut the grass, built a conservatory, and now look after the sheep. Anyone else have this problem ??

    When I'm window cleaning I always mention the gutters and pressure washing I do, and it that doesnt get me a job then I mention the handyman work I do. A quick mention of some ofther services you offer is better then advertising.
