    Could someone tell me roughly what size ladder I would need to clean a 2 storey flat?

    Never done one before

    If its a standard 2 storey a 15double ie 30 rungs all in should do it, but best done with wfp its quite a hight when your up there.

    How much wiggle room does that give you?

    Photo-0009.jpg Photo-0008.jpg . the reason i use a triple is that i can use just the first two sections for the normal work and then use all 3 sections for the 3 storey. my triple ten is high enough with a rung or 2 still left to extend to reach old victorian 3 storey , i do these houses in the photos with my triple . the base section is a tad wider than what a double ladder is , praps more stable

    I just ordered a triple 12 rung..6.82 metres I think
    have triple already but is a stretch sometimes
    Rather overkill than too small

    I have a double that would reach that but its so bloody top heavy lol, would be about 6 rungs away from the top rung when its fully extended to reach that. Rather use my 12 rung ladder thou such choice in ladders...
