J and I have lived in our house for seven years. And not once has a window cleaner been and cleaned our windows. Just look at the state of the gutter and fascias too. Or is that the soffit…?
How utterly shameful is that?
There was a reason though. With the single storey extension on the back of the house, a man with a ladder couldn’t clean the upstairs windows. And I didn’t want to pay a window cleaner and still end up with some dirty windows. Nowadays though, whether it’s to do with health and safety, or just being able to work as a one-man outfit, many window cleaners are going ladderless!
So last Saturday, in the pouring rain, a nice man with a long pole and a hosey, brushy contraption made everything better. And he will be coming every two months to keep it nice. Hurrah!
It’s quite hard to take these outdoor close-ups of an upstairs window by the way ;-)
