There are a lot of different jobs that will require high access cleaning. Whether you need to clean the windows on the second floor of your home or need to clean the whole side of a building, you need to make sure you’re using the right equipment for the job at hand.
If you don’t need to get too high up, then a ladder might be the best tool for the job at hand. It is important however to look into the right type of ladder in order to keep yourself safe. You should also consider a few other key safety tips, such as making sure the ladder is on firm and stable ground and to keep three points of contact on the ladder at all time. Always make sure that you are safe and comfortable with the equipment you are using. If you do not want to use a ladder, you could consider some of the other techniques mentioned below, or hire a professional to help.
A ladder can make it difficult to complete certain tasks – so depending on the job at hand a scaffold tower may be appropriate. While normally seen on building sites or on larger projects, you can also hire a scaffold tower to work on high access cleaning projects at home. The height of scaffold towers can typically be adjusted, providing greater versatility, and can also offer more safety and protection than a ladder. With a larger platform to stand on, you are able to move around easier and keep a range of tools and equipment nearby. Again, you should always prioritise your safety when carrying out high access cleaning on a scaffold tower. Make sure you are using the right tower for the job and that the tower is in good condition and hire or purchase the tower through a trusted provider.
You might associate cherry pickers with large industrial projects, but just like scaffolding towers, you could also hire a cherry picker for use at home or for commercial buildings and more. Using a cherry picker can be great for getting up high and perhaps cleaning your roof as well as a wide range of applications. If you hire a cherry picker, make sure to speak with the company beforehand for safety advice and how operate the cherry picker safely and correctly.
