    Name : Stuart

    Cleaning Method : Wfp & dabbling at Trad (for indoors)

    Years cleaning : Big fat Zero

    Area :East

    About me : Well I've been loitering around these forums for just over a month reading as much as is humanly possible before I attempted to start, and just wanted to start by saying you guys have been an absolute goldmine of information for me, so thanks...

    I know a couple of guys who already Wfp also so have been in the lucky position of being able to grill them too (constantly) which has brought to to where I am now, officially starting next week.

    I've got myself a Pure freedom Trolley (second hand) a 14ft Unger Fiberglass pole (off one of mt wfp buddies) An absolute steal on a 1000l IBC (delivered to my house for £20!!) and a new RO system from pure freedom.

    ​My Family love me right now as for the last week or so they have all had the living bejeesus cleaned out of their windows inside & out whilst I'm practicing like a loonie!! First time I think I got wetter than the windows & used Gallons upon Gallons of water. But I'm slowly getting better (still getting the odd bit of spotting though, think I'm not rinsing well enough)

    So yesterday (felling massively nervous) I went canvassing on a few local streets ( I think my actual tongue stuck to my mouth & I just mumbled at the first person to answer the door) :Image1: But after that, thankfully, it got easier. There was several who already had a cleaner, did their own (so they said) etc. There were even a few that tried to get me to undercut their current cleaner (mercenary swines!, I politely refused saying that I wasn't out to steal anyone elses work) But the final upshot was I actually quite got into the canvassing by the end, had no grief of people (followed the good advice I've read on her, was polite, courteous & smiley to everyone) and have 6 jobs booked in for next week.

    Small beginnings, but hopefully on wards & upwards.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my ramble & thanks again to you all for this wealth of information Forum

    Thanks for the welcome guys.
    Duncs, was actually quite funny. Got it from a local farm shop, the guy found it funny watching me trying (unsuccessfully) to shoehorn the tank into my mates little vw van, so he offered to load it in his & drop it off for me :)
