Veteran (older?) cleaners, health?

Doggone it, I thought you were another go to of mine out in the field daily John

I better revisit exit strategies since I ain’t getting younger, I want to be a superhero though (don’t we all) lol

@Bruce, yes I’ve been in the business since I was 19 and now 44, but it’s really all the sports I have played throughout the years that did me in. I’ve been lucky enough not to have any over use injuries or arthritis related to window cleaning. Having two part time employees has really helped re-distribute the load, I put my young guy on the ladder and most pole work, I get the insides.

I can only dream of having someone do the ladder work. It’s pretty much all I do. Gets old after a while.

Learn to pole and get a WFP. Your feet will thank you.

For me it’s my trapezius muscles. My feet are also sore even though I wear orthotic inserts. Next week VA has me seeing a podiatrist for an additional foot pain that is starting to feel like arthritis.

Oh man, you guys are all falling apart! 10 years and I can’t say I have any work related injuries, just aches and pains from 21 years riding a skateboard and feeling 72 some mornings at age 32

I dont think many posted where work related?

32 lol. Give it time. I really believe my lumbar/hip problems are from years of ladder work, leaning slightly back all the time.
