    Just a thought as the days draw in, there is of course less daylight, so for those of you have have big schedules, do you clean windows when it gets dark at like 4pm or do you just only clean when it's light?

    As long as I earn enough I won't worry about the winter days being shorter. If I need to catch up, I'll work a couple of hours on Saturday afternoons.

    Over the summer we working longer over less days, and over the winter we work shorter shifts over more days. But yes we work around it to avoid working in the dark. I have done before though, and a few customers I have like their windows cleaned inside and out, and don't get home till 5pm, so they still get done after 5 regardless.

    As previously said, commercials when ever though, 4am if they want it then, thats fine with me :)
