    Hi

    Seriously thinking about this wfp and wondering if its worth telling all my customers im about to move over to it, I have told a few and had a positive response but dont know if i should bother mentioning it to some as at the end of the day their windows will still be as clean if not cleaner.

    Also got any tips about moving over, will all my windows need a good first clean or not? what type of brush to use and what type of windows to avoid or take care on?

    cheers

    I told all my customers that i would be doing the tops with wfp and would no longer be using a ladder for saftey and insurance reasons most are fine and understand this!


    Yes they will as all frames will have to be cleaned!


    You will get different views on brushes it all comes down to preference in the end!

    I would not bother to tell them myself just yet until the time comes when you are ready to change over. ;)

    THIS IS THE BEST ADVICE EVER!!! LOL!!

    If you do swap over to WFP. Clean all the frames with pure water only. Especially the top frame. Make it spotless.

    Then when you go round with WFP it will be soooo much easier

    I told some, some I didn't tell and were fine with it, a lot of people are not in when I clean and have never seen me cleaning their windows so didn't tell them either.. I only lost 1 customer ( who I never told in advance ), didn't even get to finish his house, was an old boy who thought he knew better, was quite cheeky and didn't respect the fact I wanted to keep myself safe so I just walked away without trying to convince him.

    I said for years wfp is rubbish. Took the plunge, only regret is I should have done it years ago!

    Iv had some leaks doing front doors.. Also old metal framed windows can leak if they have opening panes.. Some nasty wooden frames that haven't been painted can cause problems.. Other than that everything been fine with me..

    Bird poop, I use tecbuk brushes, the hybrid is my number 1 brush, has boars hair in centre that eats bird poop.. If that dosent work, tecbuk brushes have scrapers attached, and I also use a tecbuk scrub pad, which I prefer to use.
