    I knocked on a new housing estate yesterday and one customer said
    " I dont need a window cleaner as all the windows on these new houses have self cleaning glass so i think your wasting your time. "
    So I replied erm ok then but they will still need cleaning .

    How would you guys reply to such an answer ? :-/

    have they got self cleaning frames and sills aswell?
     
  3. Ask them if they don't mind you calling back in a month or so. Guaranteed the "self cleaning" glass isn't all that. I do a few commercial jobs that have it and they all regret it

    It's not going to decide to clean itself if a bird decides to do it's business on them, also tell them the longer windows are uncleaned they will get hard water or marks or stains self cleaning or not and tell them it it hard and expensive to get them off.
    I've cleaned many self cleaning windowsnthey ain't that good

    self cleaning glass only works when it rains so in the summer tell her when you are looking out your windows they are going to be dirty

    Self cleaned glass doesn't really clean itself, its just a gimmick, they might not get as dirty, but they will still get dirty and wont stop birds dirt so they do still need cleaned.
