Why DIY Window Washing is a Risky Endeavor
Many people take great pride in doing their own work around the home. With undertakings ranging from weekend-warrior DIY projects to routine maintenance, home projects are a requirement to keep your abode in tip-top shape. It is not surprising that falls are among the most common types of accidents in and around the home, with ladders being the number one culprit.
In 2020, there were 22,710 injuries and 161 deaths, of which ladders were the primary cause. Lack of experience and not using the correct safety measures are one the many reasons for ladder accidents. For instance, mistakes such as using the wrong ladder type, poor ground support, not inspecting equipment before use, or lack of 3-point contact can lead to unavoidable mishaps.
Cleaning windows while using ladders is especially dangerous. In addition to the obvious vulnerability of slipping in wet conditions, the need to constantly maneuver a hose and change positions while on a ladder only increases the likelihood of a fall.
The risk of injury, and associated costs (medical bills, missed work, etc.), make cleaning your own windows a dangerous situation. Hiring experienced window cleaners provides professional results, peace of mind, and a lack of anxiety about potential pitfalls for you and your family.
