    just keep plugging away, some roads i only had one house and kept cleaning it then people watch and see you do a good job and decide to use you, one in the hand worth two in the nest.canvass it again in a month or so time and you might pick up one two more sounds crazy but the first time you knock your just a stranger trying his luck but if they see you a few times they think hey its that window cleaning guy that does pats windows and there always so clean, i want some of that and hire you.
