    This may sound strange but....

    Ok not new to window cleaning as I have done it last year.

    But this time round I am very shortly starting my OWN window cleaning business as I cant get a paid job.

    Anyway I was talking to this guy I know, he works in this office building in town(Nottingham) and he said he thought it was funny how people clean the windows to this office block.

    They absail down the building and swinging from window to window cleaning the windows.

    Don't know why, (am scared of heights, (that high up anyway)) but would love to have a go at this absail window cleaning lol.

    I wonder how you can get to this as its not something you do on your own.

    It's really hard mate you do a rope accses course level 3 then you need to do 1000 hours on a rope with a company before you can do level 2 then another 1000 hours for level 1 then you can start your own company doing it but you need spotters very long winded and tricky not to mention expensive to get in to

    I remember a company called "over the top" commented years ago that it's easier to teach absailers to clean windows than window cleaners to absail.
