Window Cleaning Issues - Canvassing, pole systems, pricing, problems, etc.

A question for all window cleaners.

How often do you clean your own windows? Huh

I do mine about three times a year (to my wifes disgust). It takes about 4 hrs approx (about 1/2 hr to do a good job on a similar sized house) because I wash all the frames etc.

I therefore contest she gets good value.  Roll Eyes

Hi Stooby,
