Cleaning your own window’s.

Recommended Posts

brianbadonde

Just wondered how many of you get round to cleaning your own windows, and if so how often? My Mrs is always asking me if I know a reliable window cleaner lol I can never be arsed to do my own 😂 I’d happily pay someone to clean my own, as ridiculous as it sounds! I may clean mine maybe 4 times a year even though I’d really like them doing every 4 weeks. I wondered if you all keep on top of yours?

On the sixth time she complains how dirty they are which is usually after asking me to clean them for a month, so I'm probably on a par with you. I just usually say she's my worst customer, never pays and complains all the time, tends not to go down that well.

Every 4 weeks typically but sometimes a bit longer

@steve garwood don't you have a window cleaner for your own windows?

Yes, his name is Craig, South African guy.

Been doing my windows for over 15 years.

Buggered if I can be bothered doing my own after a days work, and weekends are special to me.

Anyway, after being home from Egypt for three days, I have to go upstairs now to do my packing ready for Thursday when I’m off to Tenerife with 17 mates 😆.

Sorry, I do love a boast 👍

We live in a bungalow 5 small windows at the back and 2 larger windows at the front so it ain't that hard, the walk from the front to the back is more of a chore as its 60 metres the building is a former byre so only one door so have to walk across a courtyard through an archway and round the other side

I do mine once a month roughly. Mine don’t stay clean for long though, after a week or two there’s a film of dust usually.

Whenever I get a new brush or pole, or rebuild some part of my system, the three windows closest to my van are always spotless.

 

As for the ones on the other side of the house, not so much.

 

I usually tell my wife there's a spare pole and hose in the basement, and she can hook it up to the van filling system on the outside wall and have a go. 😝

What I’m saying is, if loads keep saying yes to a £3 clean, loads of others will expect the same.

As for been going longer? Who knows, but I’ve been going over 25 years and don’t really want to hear about £3 cleans 👍🙂

I do my own at the beginning of my working month. Allows me to make sure everything is still running well. 

 

Mate if mine would pay the local tradder to do his, despite having a full business with three employees working for him. 😂

A friend of mine told me about a bloke with quite a few people working for him who never cleaned his own windows. His wife was tired of it and since she did the books she just slipped a work order for their house into the system so their employees cleaned it. 😂
