    Some say you are not a real window cleaner until you can use both methods properly :D

    I can use it as i would just keep going until i had a spotless job (did a house with my mate and enjoyed it and had no problems) it would just take me a bit of time at first
    I can use a rag
    I can use a squeegee
    I can use a ladder
    I can use a trad pole
    That must make me a super windie

    Wanna certificate and tshirt? ?
    I'll do you one for 50 quid

    To answer the question some never change and are happy just doing trad but many do and never look back. Reason being wfp adds an extra revenue stream to their business being able to do both whichever method is most suited to the job in hand. Not to mention the H&S thing which is an added bonus of using wfp pole.
