    Been out doing some leaflets today managed to get 4 new customers, only thing is one of them is a pub with windows that look a pain and I've not cleaned any like this before, can you give me any advice on what problems I'm likely to encounter and how to overcome them. I'm using a wfp.

    If wfp you should be fine. If they're wooden, you may get flakes of paint coming off, but an extra good rinse should solve this and any other problems with this pub. Rinse rinse rinse! Hope that helps.

    Taunton, I lived there for a few years when I was a boy, lovely part of the country. I would say if the paints to flaky and you want the job trad it.
