Quality of work - how important is that

regardless if I clean using a squeegee or wfp - I always check and re-clean if necessary - and sometimes I have complaints about a minor mark I missed ...

 

but how about this

not sure if you can see from the pic but believe me is really bad ... and no is not from inside as Ive cleaned all internal windows as part of a spring clean ...

 

I know the customer for 7 years now - and I clean everything in and around their house apart from windows LOL - cos they have a window cleaner apparently - who cleans every 6 wks ...

 

 

In other words leaving a sparkling window is not so important vs the ability to know how to sell your service ....

Hmmm something not right about that as the dirt marks are not consistent with squeegee, they have been cleaned with a cloth someone's telling porkies. Maybe the window got particularly dirty one month and owner gave it a scrub before window cleaner was due, because cant see how anyone ie window cleaner would leave windows like that.

Looks to me like the seals might be going, when they do you sometimes get cleaning marks from the manufacturer in the inside, between the glass. Then it will develop into that cloudiness that you get. So it could be that the seals are on the way out. Or it could scrim marks if your customer's windy is still doing it the old way with chammy and scrim.

That's what I was thinking aswell to be honest. It's hard to tell from the pic but could be a ground floor window for all we know :D

 

looks like someone lent out the window to clean that and just couldnt reach that last little bit

is not a ground floor window . Few years ago I asked if they need a window cleaner : P as I didn't know they already got one - and I was told that they are happy to pay me too but still keep the other window cleaner and I said no thanks let him do the job - is his customer anyway ..

 

I only clean their windows when I do the conservatory roof and gutters - once / twice a year

well I don't know it could be - however I don't think the owner tried to clean them from inside - they just won't do that I know - not from inside not from outside .. and is not only that window (which isn't above the conservatory)

 

May be the gardener tried to clean the dust after using his petrol blower - who knows ... : )

ive fully decorated the master bedroom few days ago and I thought to clean that window from outside as it didn't look good as per above photo - done it and looked great . Today I went to check how the paint has dried etc to discover that the window cleaner "cleaned" the windows again - and all windows are mucked again lol

 

this is the same window

I get what you're saying smurf but I hate to see dirty windows for 1 and 2 I hate to see people gettimg ripped off for a job I can do properly and keep the money in my pocket

I just think there are too many people doing a half arsed job out there and those of us who would do a proper job not getting the work
