    I know most of you are now WFP but when traditional did you guys charge extra for removing kiddies stickers from windows etc if you ever did the internals. I get some windows where they're all over the damn place.

    I remove small spots if in the mood, but larger stickers they have to ask and then i make a decision, often if just one normal size window i takes seconds and i do it for free. If a whole house is covered ie got new windows i charge extra.

    I usually use my scraper but gets a bit much when there are let's say 2 or 3 kids in the house and they all have 5 or 6 stickers on windows which the owner needs removing. On some it can take a while to remove.

    we do new build houses all day every week day.

    we use a solvent from a company called nu-stock. £3 + VAT per litre and it is excellent. Brings all uPVC up to sparkling white, removes traces of tar, glue and nicotine.

    beware though, it gets you off your head
