Cleaning the inside of windows

Posted by salven (salven), 30 January 2004
I was wondering why wc's dont clean the inside of windows, only the outside, surely this would be helpful when its raining.
Any comments would be appreciated

Hi Salvern
              I do quite a few inside jobs but its sometimes hard to fit it in to the wet days Smiley

The customer has to be in so need an appointment.
You have to be carefull with curtains ornaments etc.
You get warm then have to go out and get cold.
They won't pay a premium for the extra hassle.

Having said that if you do upmarket properties then they usually want in & out. My best job is an in and out for 80 which is worth phoning the night before to arrange!

We do loads of inside jobs especially large houses.We use pur water on outside and by time hes finished inside done to.Inside always use gg3/4 in spray bottle then cloth to wipe and buff.No ladders either use pole with clamp for cloth this is such a time saver.

Fastest for internals: Wagtail Combi Squeegee and pure water!
I dont think soap is necesary in these anti smoking days!
