    regardless if I clean using a squeegee or wfp - I always check and re-clean if necessary - and sometimes I have complaints about a minor mark I missed ...

    but how about this

    [​IMG]

    not sure if you can see from the pic but believe me is really bad ... and no is not from inside as Ive cleaned all internal windows as part of a spring clean ...

    I know the customer for 7 years now - and I clean everything in and around their house apart from windows LOL - cos they have a window cleaner apparently - who cleans every 6 wks ...


    In other words leaving a sparkling window is not so important vs the ability to know how to sell your service ....

    Hmmm something not right about that as the dirt marks are not consistent with squeegee, they have been cleaned with a cloth someone's telling porkies. Maybe the window got particularly dirty one month and owner gave it a scrub before window cleaner was due, because cant see how anyone ie window cleaner would leave windows like that.

    Looks to me like the seals might be going, when they do you sometimes get cleaning marks from the manufacturer in the inside, between the glass. Then it will develop into that cloudiness that you get. So it could be that the seals are on the way out. Or it could scrim marks if your customer's windy is still doing it the old way with chammy and scrim.

    Looks to me like the windy is cleaning their windows with cloths...very quickly....and not worrying about the edges. A bish bash bosh window cleaner. Disgraceful.
