It's best to go to work for someone who can train you first. Just work a season with them and learn the tricks.

And if you are wanting to learn, this IS the season to start looking for work as a window clewaner. Everyone is gearing up for the new season as we speak. Tons of window cleaning jobs out there right now.

If you land a job with someone, and you are a newbie, don't expect to make more than 10 dollars an hour with 4 to 8 hrs of work each day. (Average is 6hrs).

If you want to get hired with them, just ask them if they are hiring. Start cold calling.

Here is a list for Vancouver, BC.

If you are in a small town like that and there is nobody else cleaning windows, it's because either the townsfolk are broke or it is new undiscovered territory, which could net you a healthy sum every year. You would have the jump on everyone else.

People who have their windows cleaned also use services like, housekeeping, carpet cleaning, gardening, pressure washing, roof moss control, house washing, gutter cleaning and filtration, etc. Exterior Home maintenance stuff.

Seems there's only one window cleaner in town, I called, he quoted me $60/hr. Said no cleaning at all until spring, can't blame them for that, most rooves have 2' of snow on them. But better to be good and go piece work than take two hours to clean a skylight eh? Interesting. coffeetime.gif

Never use someone who charges by the hour for window cleaning. They will suck you dry. They are slow. Use bid only companies. Or you start a bid only company.

Here is the first part to the Unger training video.

I just got another job offer too. I had to turn them down because I'm already spoken for.
