    Window cleaning doesn't get more simple than scrub with brush then rinse. I'd never go back to trad for the same reasons as RC above, I can get through £3-400 a day with WFP, no chance at all with squeegee and windwash.

    I'd have to agree with you although I do do some wfp from a backpack. I also would not say its going backwards. Trad still needs to be there to do insides for instance & those windows with railings on. I know a couple of window cleaners round my area that switched back as they preferred trad. You will also get people saying its good because all there worried about is how much money they can earn rather then do a good job (NOT directed to anybody on here just a general observation from my area) so in my eyes cannot see why eyebrows are raised when people say they prefer trad. I do.

    Wouldn't say it's as easy as that. Takes a while to get it right. Agree it's good once you got the knack.
