There are many different factors and choices which you have to consider with window cleaning. One such factor is what the best ladder to use for window cleaning is. You want to ensure that you pick a ladder which allows you access to all of the windows in the building that you are working on.
Of course, the best ladder for you really depends on the property that you are working on and whether you are a new or professional window cleaner. There are a number of different ladders that you could choose from, including folding step ladders, extension ladders, and sectional ladders.
If you are a professional window cleaner, you may choose to purchase a sectional ladder, as they are specifically made for window cleaning. They are distinguishable by their triangular end, which is designed to fit into hard to position places. If you choose to purchase a sectional ladder, we recommend getting one in 4 to 5 sections.
If you are an amateur window cleaner, we would recommend that you purchase an extension ladder which is long enough for you to get the job done, without going over the top of the property. As a rule of thumb, 20-foot extension ladders will most likely be tall enough to reach second floor windows. However, if you need to reach further heights, then we recommend that you purchase a 30-foot ladder for window cleaning. We would say that a 40-foot ladder is far too high and unnecessary. Overall, someone who is new to window cleaning will most likely find a 24-foot ladder suitable.
