To be honest I kind of understand them. For monthly customers I don't care  much about the weather. But for those who get cleaned four times a year I try to clean them when the forecast is ok. Wind and little or no rain is the worst, and I can see why it hurts to pay for something that only lasts a few hours.

They are monthly customers and only fronts £5.00 but they add up like. I wouldn't even care about paying a fiver if it was me lol.

I tell them if they're not clean after I've finished ring me and I'll call back. Rain doesn't get windows dirty, it's nearly as pure as we use, depending where you live. More dangerous for WFP is dry windy days

I try to tell all my customers that I work in all weathers except extreme conditions and I try to make sure all new customers know this.  Educate them as best you can and as part timer suggested.  If they still persist with 'not today please because of the weather' then I would bin them once I'd got better replacements.

Depends on how you clean. wfp is a breeze in the rain, the rain helps. I wouldn’t trad in heavy rain though, the micro fibre cloths get sopping wet. a dry cloth picks up soot whereas a damp cloth tends to just spread it around

Same here
I let them know from the start that it’s an all year round service (and the price i gave is for a regular monthly clean) and due to the good old British weather there will inevitably be some days I’ll have to come when it’s raining.
Depending on how many customers you have either bin them straight away or mark their names for when you start getting full.

I got a full round i cant keep up with on my own anyhow. Thinking of getting rid of the **** before taking on someone again anyhow. How do most people react to you saying that? Are they ok with it?
