In the realm of window cleaning, Prudential Window Cleaning is here to provide you with all the help and advice you need to optimise the state of your windows, allowing more light into your property and improving its overall external appearance. Perhaps you are ready to get those windows cleaned – you know what substance to use to get them streak free and you have a squeegee, but how do you reach the right height to access your windows? You need a ladder, but what kind of ladders are there, and which one is the right one for you?
There are a few different types of ladders to choose from, and the job you need to complete will certainly determine which one you opt for. For starters, there are folding step ladders. These are normally used on storefronts and houses. We would suggest that a 6 and 10-foot step ladder will be useful for the majority of tasks. In terms of materials, aluminium is ideal due to its light weight.
Next, there are extension ladders, which can be used for residential windows above the first floor. We advise to pick an extension ladder which is long enough to complete your jobs without exceeding the height of your property. As a guide, 20-foot extension ladders will certainly reach second floor windows, but should you need to go higher, you will require a 30-foot ladder.
Finally, there are sectional ladders, which are ideal if you are a professional window cleaner. The triangular end is crafted to fit into places which are hard to position. You should get one in 4 to 5 sections, with 4 being the safer option.
So there you have it, a brief guide of which ladder to select for your needs.
