    [font="Arial""]I have large domestic rounds and the rounds continue to grow each week All the windows we clean using the wfp (apart inside :)) Complaints wise out of a year I have only have 2 or 3 (drips, water marks) which I think isn’t that bad. Even though each customer receives a letter letting them know what to expect from the first clean.[/font]

    My thought is this, would you say that the wfp system is more for commercial use, than domestic? Does it work for you, or even though you have the wfp, do you blade domestic and wfp commercial?[font="Arial""][/font]

    Thanks[font="Arial""][/font]

    I'll say this again H people don't want wfp just to have their whites cleaned, windies have cleaned those since day 1 and I reckon they've managed well enough without wfp. The pole is a very handy tool but I am sick to the back teeth with pathetic comments like that, I'll challenge ya mate to any very dirty first clean you with your future of window cleaing and me with my hands and I bet I know who does the best job frames, sills and doors included.

    Same as wfp then mate, some are utter rubbish round my way. We are as good as each other but different, if a windie didn't do my frames I wouldn't pay him and I certainly wouldn't ask if he did them, I expect it.

    I would also challenge anyone that my windows are as clean as any wfp. Frames as well. It was brought in not coz it's better but coz its supposedly safer. Yes you can reach difficult window & 3rd storey windows but that's why us traders have backpacks & believe me I got a lot of work off wfp guys. There both good. Seems like we're going down the road again of some of you knocking trad. Why.
