    I tend to get most of my hard surface cleaning work from ppl visiting my website also through recommendation and repeat business.

    Winter is generally slower but I can still pick up a few due to outside surfaces becoming an h&s slips & trip issue. As we all know wet dirty surfaces covered in green slime are not idea to walk on. I've found badly maintained decking etc like this lethal to walk on when wet let alone trying to work from.

    I always take pics when out giving quotes then if/when I do the job take more pics for that very same reason.

    Pictures paint a thousand of words and all that so it is a must thesdays to show potential customer the quality of work can you offer. People are generally gobsmacked at the results so often will give customer feedback that I also put on my website too.
