    Just interested in peoples views on traditional.now I use wfp where required and have done for many years.
    But I love the squeegee and get immense satisfaction from blading loads of windows and my customers love it.
    Since joining this forum have noticed people start to window clean with out learning the art of window cleaning and get a wfp straight away,quite shocking.
    check amount of wfp to traditional posts.shocking long live the squeegee!

    I won't even change if forced to by law lol

    They're hardly going to jail me for using a squeegee.

    "Excuse me sir, your breaking the law using that traditional equipment"


    "Oh am I now? If I'm already breaking the law kind sir, I might as well break it more by kicking your ass"

    Hahaha yes I have far to much time on my hands... My apologies for the silly banter.

    On a serious note........

    I love traditional window cleaning. I've been at it a few months now, and see the minute that your skills with the squeegee just click in to place....it's magic.

    I thought I was never going to get the hang of it, then all of a sudden...BANG....I'm a window cleaner lol

    Trad guys, if water fed pole had come first, how many of you would change to using ladders?
