just like to say hello to fellow window cleaners, been operating now for six years, but i want (as long as the law allows) to stay traditional . this is due to a few of my window cleaning colleagues saying that their customers do not like the results of the pole system. i am not sure if i do either.

I get better results with wfp then I ever did squeegee method,All those leaded windows I use to clean with scrim and carry a triple ladder for town houses total breeze with the pole can concentrate on cleaning instead of hanging off a ladder wanting to get done as quick as possible.

Hi & welcome.


WFP done badly can be horrendous - but so can trad.


I agree with the others - WFP cleans really well - but some cowboys have given it a bad name.


When I changed from Trad to pole, I expected to lose some customers - lost only one - and she used to moan anyway - about marks that were actually blown glazing units. Since then - picked up mountains - without canvassing.


Sometimes when I have hiccups with my equipment I think how nice and simple it was with a ladder - but looking back with rose tinted glasses you forget the near misses, the panic when the wind gets gusty, anxiety when there has been a heavy frost & the ground is icy, trying to get to the window above the decking or the one above the conservatory - one foot on the ladder, one foot on the porch roof.......


Suddenly loses it's appeal.


If in doubt - go out with a cleaner for the dau - who does get good results, and happy customers.


The other thing to bear in mind, is that if you can clean say 5 extra houses a day - changing your customer base could be a very shrewd move.


All the best to you though, whichever way you go.
