    No but you will always get by some that will say "oh leave it now until spring".
    However below freezing temps then wfp is not great method to attempt to clean window either.

    Most have a slush fund to fall back on as in winter months if bad you may not be able to work for several weeks.

    I don't 'Stop' during winter, I just slow down a bit and leave slightly longer between cleans. If weather is bad I do shorter days, if weather is awful like heavy snow or rain then I take a bit of well deserved time off

    Just did my first winter & I had a dream of putting my feet up watching Jeremy Kyle and not doing much......but it never happened. Windows need cleaning all year round- it's just up to us to find the 'good' custies. Good luck with it all mate. If your a grafter & keep yourself motivated you will be absolutely fine!

    I find it just gets harder to fit it all in to the shorter days!

    Its a good time to diversify. Cleaning insides, carpet cleaning, and any other stuff that gets you inside, is a good way to keep the money coming in when the weather gets bad.
