    Does the wet weather put people off having their windows cleaned. Is it better to wait for some better weather before I try canvassing. Any thoughts on this guy's.

    We had the wettest January to date & so far this year I've picked up 14 new customers. I seem to pick up more in winter then summer for some strange reason

    Dont wait for better weather. Just get canvassing now. There are always new customers to be had.....every month of the year.

    Depends where you are I suppose as many homes across the uk are flooded or at risk of flooding so the last thing they want is a window cleaner right now.

    Some you will find will not want their windows cleaned in winter months anyhow especially some older folk.
