I agree with Total Clean, it is definitely the safeest to have someone else holding it. I don't mind paying a bit extra for another employee because sometimes tasks can't be done alone and it is nice to have a helping hand.

Falls are the most common cause of accidents at home. Ladders need to be used with caution and handled carefully.
  • Do not struggle with an extension ladder on your own. Get help.
  • Remember the leaning ladder rule: position the foot of the ladder one measure out for every four measures in height.
  • Ladder feet should be on a firm, level surface, the top resting on something solid. Never lean a ladder on guttering or on a window sill. If you need to work in these areas, use a pre-fitted stand-off which maintains stability. Always secure the bottom and upper part of the ladder with rope or straps around the stiles, never from the rungs, remembering to keep loose ends away from your feet to avoid tripping.
  • Move the ladder rather than over-reach.
  • Wear sensible shoes. Do not wear sandals or work in bare feet.

I use a ladder stabilizer that will take away from the house alittle more than put the stairs on the side of the house. It helps that side to side to move up and gives you a better feel, while

Its very dangerous for untrained people to climb long ladders. So in order to get my roof,high windows and chandelier cleaned I prefer taking cleaning services from us you can seek help of cleaning service providers in town. You can find their number online easily and contact them.

It's ok to be a newbie, just be able to learn from those mistakes.

Can not stress this enough....ladder brackets rock.

If you have never used ladder brackets, once you try them you will be sold. They provide that kind of assurance that you can not even get when you have someone spotting for you at the base of the ladder.
They are designed to prevent slippage and horizontal slippage of the ladder. Of course not all ladder brackets are equal, and there are a lot of different options for different roofs. So do your research and find out what would suit the unique requirements of your property.
Hope that helps.

I usually just have somebody else hold the ladder for me. Better to have two people working on something, anyways

Oh, you guys are too funny! First thread here thats has made me laugh.

I avoid ladder, because I am over 60 and deeply fear falls. Sometimes, I DO have to use one, and when I do, I take it very slowly and very carefully. In Florida, everyone has ceiling fans, which are a royal pain to clean unless you use a ladder. Its kinda amazing how much dust can accumulate on fan blades in just a short time. And also, kinda disgusting! If you know what dust actually is made of, its even more gross. LOL! Human skin cells, animal skin cells, dander, dead dried up insects, hair, ordinary dirt and who knows what else. We MAKE our own dust, in case you didnt know this. The older a building is, the more dust. In an old building much of the dust is from PREVIOUS occupants and their pets. But a brand new home also has dust.

In one of my science classes for my Nursing degree, we looked at our own home's dust under a microscope. It was VERY interesting and also a bit disgusting. LOL!
