I'm a 4 day week man now.....5 or 6 hours a day...that's plenty of time to earn a good wedge...
Surely you no longer need to work in the rain?

I hate that term. You can hardly call a carbon fibre pole a tool can you. We're not a proper trade.

i like it......."on the tools" and im part of the "window cleaning trade" sounds good to me...... :)

i love the simplicity of cleaning....when i look at builders,plasters,joiners,etc it makes me feel so lucky that i dont have to faff about like they have to do to get a job completed....

Lol all theses so called cleaning firms that cannot even sort out a form absolutely laughable , can you do rams ?. And site specific quotes ?? I doubt it , if you cannot sort out a simple form how on earth do you think you are going to get a contract with a decent size firm .

Removing the ingrained marks on the sills will be more trouble than its worth but the windows themselves aren't that hard to clean, you just need to make sure that any water above the seal has stopped dripping before cleaning the glass below it, the same as you would with a problem vent,  there are a number of ways to achieve this.

These windows are easily cured - spray with TFR and scrub - you will get masses of black running out of the seals for around 3 or 4 minutes after that the water runs clear and from then on you don't get any black bleeding in future cleans

This is interesting I have tried everything and once the seals are degraded by UV I have never been able to stop the black  coming off  the seals I just tell customers that the seals are knackered and there is nothing I  can do to stop it.  I have done a restoration on one window as an experiment the frame was restored to almost like new but within a few months the black staining was back again , so now donít bother .

Agree. Once they bleed they don't stop bleeding.
