    I'm taking em off a wfp guy mate for no other reason than when I do a custies house on 'his' round neighbours are asking me to do theirs moaning about the **** job he does and sacking him. I do it for same price he does as well.

    I can see he's **** though a mile away, I don't know what water he's using but it sure ain't pure.

    His loss is my gain mate, did one job from FB came away with 2 more and two possibles. and same has happened further up estate.

    It's not just the spotting and streaks, frames are really still mucky and the one I got from FB didn't believe they'd even cleaned her upstairs as there was bird muck on 2 windows that was still there after they supposedly cleaned.

    I've had a couple before say they just don't like wfp as windie just leaves it wet and I haven't taken the work I've just asked if they're clean and shiny when they dry and if they say yes I just tell em then he's doing it right and thats the way he's meant to do it. I'm not going to grab work from a decent windie if I don't have to but this other guy is rubbish so alls fair in love, war, and window cleaning.

    Saying he had turned up and he never did . I'm not complaining like the more the merrier i say .

    She was shocked to see that i cleaned all the frames sills and front and back door
    For a tenner . She was well chuffed even much so she said every 2 weeks .
