    Hello everybody, still finding my way around here but looks good so far, names Richard and come from Derby and been window cleaning 25 years now so have lots of experience including traditional wfp cradle and high access equipment so I'm hoping to give as much advice as I recieve :)
    I left my long time employer 3 years ago and have been starting my business only part time worked traditional from my car first, I have now converted what work I have to wfp with my trolley and now looking to buy a van, loving working for myself but need more work :)

    Welcome puraclenz

    I would say wfp method is defo the way to go not just for cleaning windows either as add on services can bring in plenty of high value work. Combine that with a gutter clearing & pressure washing services too you can end up with a niche professional exterior property cleaning business rather than just trying to compete with other window cleaners in your area.

    Most of my customer may I add already have a regular window cleaner.

    Works for me :)
