Comfortable grip long handle allows for easy access into machines, deep buckets, containers, and anywhere that may require a longer reach. Usually the brush head can be separately.


Brush Type:

These are some of the main cleaning brushes you need to do a proper deep clean, and when you should or shouldn’t use them.


Flat "scrub" brushes: This kind of brush is suitable for cleaning flat, curved or open surfaces. A scrubbing brush is one of the more universal cleaning brushes. It is good at scrubbing most things! What you’re looking for is something with hard bristles so it can work at any nasty stains or build up. This type of brush is best used when the thing you’re trying to clean has well-ingrained stains on it but doesn’t require more specialist equipment.


Tile and grout brushes: Tile and grout brushes are handheld brushes that you mainly use in bathrooms and kitchens. They are smaller than other cleaning brushes and with softer bristles to let you clean inside indents and groovers around tiling.

These brushes should only be used for tiling and grout to prevent them from getting damaged. These are fantastic at that one function though, so you won’t mind leaving them on the bench for other stains.


Tube cleaning brushes: Tube cleaning brushes are designed to fit inside of drains, valves, tubes and other types of fittings. Tube cleaning brushes are specified by diameter across bristle area. The diameter of the brush should be same as the opening of the tube or smaller. The length of handles for tube brushes should be long enough to reach the entire length of tube or fitting to be cleaned. Tube brushes are often bent or curved to specific shapes for cleaning the outside of tubes, and fittings.


Outdoor Cleaning Brushes: If you have hard surfaces outside to clean, then another deck scrubber is a good solution. This can be rougher since the surface outdoors is less prone to scratching than inside.


The right brushes make cleaning more efficient and easier.
