how about window cleaners ?

I have been living here now for 6 months, I am in desperate need of a job otherwise it's hello again England, I have tried various companies,either the money is an insult, or my knowledge of French is very limited. so I have been thinking about setting a window cleaning round, can anybody give me any feedback  on the idea, I was thinking of charging 10 euro's per house, but I don't know if the French people have ever had this service, or should I try the English comunities, or if you have a transport company and are looking for a driver (HGV) or less than leave a message

Thanks for reading this and I welcome any clean comments

regards Pete

Hi Pete,

There are lots of lazy people along the Cote D`azur and lots of rich ones, I think your idea is a great one, I`ve not come across a window cleaning company here before, GO FOR IT and good luck with it

The reason why there is not much call for residential window cleaners in France is because all or most house windows open inwards which means that unless houseowners are severely disabled, old, very rich or just lazy, they are able to clean them themselves.  There might be some demand from gardiens of large holiday villas who hire cleaners and perhaps window cleaners.

Is that 10 euros for any size house? my house has 27 sets of windows. That would be a bargain price.Jan
