    light rain yeah, but if its chucking it no. I used to really hate trying to make the decision of weather to go out or not. Now I just carry on in light rain, if its forecasted for showers, I will sit them out in the van if they are not too frequent, but if its down to be raining all day, I just take the day off.

    It comes down to my own moral and my lads moral, I know some window cleaners that are out in all weathers, heavy rain and high winds, but personally I wouldn't take a risk. I know one that's staff pack it in all the time, they have a very quick staff turnaround and are always running late.

    I would rather have staff stick it out and have experienced staff.
