    What would be the best way to clean this window, its right next to a cable but its a electric cable not phone cable - an im guessing its live and which ever method WFP or traditional you only need a little drip an you in trouble? The bit near the house is bear metal cable so it would be live wouldn't it?
    Any thoughts?

    Just put the ladder on or under the sill and carry on as normal. Use ladder mitts or a couple of old socks so you dont mark the sils though.

    To be honest I wouldn't even think twice about it.
    As tolish said ladder up, clean & down.
    Got loads I do where I have to duck under them.
    I've never given a second thought if they were live or not.
    What happens when rain gets on it?????

    If you're that worried dont do it.

    Not very helpful, just my opinion.

    the base section of all poles have fibreglass in them to stop it being conductive, i think
