    I used to use a set of 8 metre ladders and clean out gutters by hand on 3 floor townhouses
    You need experience and balls to do it though

    most ladder insurance for window cleaners has a height limit of ten metres .

    you will be mad if you do 3 storey work alone.

    I always did 3 storey on my own
    More recently used ankalad but did nearly quarter of a century on ladders
    As you get older and look back you realise what a *** you have been
    Selfish also as 1 slip and it's my family who would suffer not me as i would be brown bread

    Same here Dave,

    Wfp could of saved my life,

    I was always careful, but doing it alone was stupid!

    Although I have no problem with people doing it in pairs
