Meeting A World Record Holder

I first saw Terry break the record on BBC’s Record Breakers and I loved seeing him work. I never knew then that I would be a window cleaner but it will be great just to meet him.

I like to promote myself as more of a thorough window cleaner than a fast one, but I’m still pretty fast. I don’t know my average time but I will need to put all my twenty years of experience into the challenge if I’m going to beat his record.

I am trying to beat the 20-year record maintained by Terry ‘Turbo’ Burrows, who cleaned three 1.143m high windows in 9.14 seconds in 2009. This was a tenth of a second faster than his previous best time set four years earlier. It would be incredible to think that the world record could be brought to my hometown of Northampton

There is a £250 cash prize for the winner of the daily competition at the Cleaning Show at ExCeL London, at the Royal Victoria Dock, East London, from March 14 -16, and a chance to enter the history books as the world’s fastest window cleaner.

I am very keen to get the chance to have a go at the world record. I will need to use all of my twenty years of experience though if I’m going to beat his record which has stood for over twenty years! I don’t for a minute think I’m likely to beat the world record, set by Terry. I am though excited to meet him and see the world record holder in action. It is also a great opportunity to learn from such an experienced cleaner and pick up some tips on speed and technique.
