    Last two weeks have had 7 customers put there house up for sale including a £75 job. Looks like a bit of leaflet distribution needs doing to replace it.
    Hopefully will keep some with the new owners.

    Maybe because they can't afford the price of the window cleaning no more :D

    It's a very fluid game we are in so ppl constantly come and go. I've lost count how many of my customers have passed due to old age. Maybe I'm in the wrong game and should be an undertaker instead :rolleyes:
