    first of all dont be afraid as this is the friendly forum..as long as your not called solar steve.:D.....

    hi and welcome to the forum LUKIDELUX

    funny enough I class first cleans as being left six months on my website.and as such now charge double for cleaning them as they do take twice as long..

    I have cleaned far too many first cleans for next to no money in the hope of gaining the work only to find out a year later that they dont wont them cleaned too often so remember that when you price them up...

    and one way to become good at english is to practise so keep posting and keep us informed of your progress..

    welcome again.:D

    Hi & welcome LUKIDELUX
    First clean is a term used for the first time you go to clean the windows on the property. Which generally means will take longer to do properly because the frames & glass have not been cleaned for a while.

    Welcome Lukidelux ! This forum is great and everyone is very helpful. I'll help you if I can. Ive been trad for 8 years and WFP for 3 and a half, so i know a fair bit ... but nobody knows everything and im always picking up new things along the way.

    Hi , welcome to the party , like Keir999 said "always learning ". I started with a vikan rectangle brush . Good brush BUT heavy ..... Looking back too heavy .... If you add a little bit of kit every month you'll soon have enough to work with :thumbsup::thumbsup:
