1. For the inside, always use a stepladder.
People often try to clean the skylights by standing on things that were not meant for the job, such as tables or chairs. This is unsafe. You always want to use a stepladder that is tall enough that you do not even have to climb to the top step.
2. Clean on clear, warm days.
If there is any water on the roof, do not climb up to clean the skylights. This also goes for any snow or ice. You always want to climb on the shingles on clear days when the sun has dried them out so that they give you good traction.
